As of March, 2017, a quarter steer has a set cost of $310 (plus processing fee); a half steer has a set cost of $595 (plus processing fee). This gives around 60-70 pounds per quarter of take home beef and fills one and a half shelves of our standing freezer. Getting a quarter from us is a half of a half, which means you get cuts from the whole steer, front and back. When you order half of a steer it is double the meat of the quarter, you save $25, and you have more control over the way the meat is cut.
We have our beef processed at Jones' Packing in the little village of Lawrence, near Harvard, IL. If you would like more information about the meat processing you can call them at 815-943-4488. They are very helpful and walk our customers through the cutting instructions. (Quater Steer: Approx. $75)* (Half Steer: Approx. $140)*
We are a small, old-fashioned family farm and we raise our beef humanely and without hormones or daily antibiotics. The steers are approximately 95% grass/hay fed with a very small amount of protein given daily. We do not corn finish.
We can supply references from our repeat customers if you ask and we would be happy to speak with you about any questions you have about our beef!
