Our 2015 price for grassfed beef is $4.50 per lb. of hanging weight plus processing costs. We collect a $200 deposit per half carcass through PayPall as soon as beef is requested and reserve the beef upon receipt. We collect the balance of the $4.50 per lb. after we deliver the animal to the processor and receive a hanging weight from them. Our customers contact the processor and specify their choices of cuts, dry aging period, and packaging. After the dry aging, the processor converts the hanging carcass into cuts, packages and labels the meat, and freezes it. Our customer then picks up the frozen meat and pays the processing fee directly to the processor.

We are selling animals that are about 12 to 15 mos. old and weight around 700 lbs. The hanging carcass weight is typically 50 to 55% of the live weight or an average of about 365 lbs. The payment to us on a 365 lb. hanging weight would be $1,642.50 per animal or $821.25 per half carcass. The processing is typically around another $1 per lb. of hanging weight, an average of $365. This would come to a total cost per whole animal of $2,007.50. The packaged meat yield varies depending on the cuts requested, the amount of bone removed, etc., but it averages around 65% of the hanging weight. In this example it would come to 237 lbs. which would be $8.47 per lb. of packaged meat. Since this includes all of the higher priced cuts such as tenderloin and rib-eye, it is an excellent value compared to buying by the cut. Additionally, the value of healthy, nutrient dense food is immeasurable.
