Read faq’s below to understand more about how buying wholesale works.
We charge based on what’s called a hang weight. Our steers weigh around 500 lbs “hung” and our lambs may weigh about 60 – 70lbs “hung”, Beef is $3.55/lb. and lamb is $5.85/lb. hang weight.
You may purchase beef as a whole, half, or quarter. Lamb is only sold as whole or half.
How much you should buy depends both on how large your family is and how much meat you eat! On average, a half steer and whole lamb will feed a family of four for a whole year. Adjust up or down based on your family’s specific needs.
Hang weight is the weight of the animal after it’s been butchered and hung up to age, but before it’s been processed into cuts you would recognize from the grocery store. Each animal will loose more weight depending on how it is cut up. The weights of the prepared cuts that you are familiar with can vary widely base on how you choose to have it prepared.
When you buy wholesale, you are buying a portion of the animal and it is fully customizable. Charging by hang weight allows us to keep a consistent price for our customers. Hang weight is a standard measurement that is used across the industry to determine the cost of wholesale meat.
Our price includes butchering costs. We pay the butcher so there are no hidden fees for our customers. We collect a deposit when you reserve your animal, which is applied to the final purchase price when your animal goes to market. If you do not have a large freezer, you may want to look into investing in one so you have the space and flexibility to buy wholesale meat when you need it.
