BUYING BULK BEEF – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

We offer a variety of packages for purchasing in bulk, anything from one large box to a full freezer worth of our Farm Fresh Beef at a discount.

Below is an average of what you would be paying for and what you would be taking home.

We base our pricing on the hanging weight of the animal. (The hanging weight is taken after the head, hide, feet and organs have been removed). For simplicity purposes, in this example we will use:

  • Average hanging weight: 650 lbs per beef
  • Pricing: $5.50/lb * hanging weight for quarters, halves and whole beef
  • Pricing: $6.00/lb * hanging weight for an eighth of a beef
  • Prices include cut & wrap fees, and delivery to your home within Whitecourt, St. Albert, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and West Edmonton.
  • Custom Cutting is available on Half and Whole Beef
  • We age all our beef for 21 days, but if purchasing a half or whole beef we can do more or less depending on your preference.
  • Standard cutting is available on Quarter and Eighth Beef (our favorite cuts)
  • To give you a relation to our individual item pricing:

Please Note:

  • The above amounts of what you would be taking home are an approximation and dependant upon how the beef is cut. For example, you can get more/fewer steaks, roasts or ground by cutting the beef differently.
  • Prices may decrease or increase depending on the size of the Beef. For example, this months beef hanging weights were 620 lbs and 670 lbs.
  • The diagram above is not an accurate depiction of our homegrown beef. 

Our finished Beef is 18-28 months old, so they are young healthy animals. They have never been fed medicated feeds, never been implanted with hormones, and are free of antibiotics.

We finish our beef on our homegrown hay (some is certified organic), grass (depending on the time of year) and locally grown barley. The barley makes up to ⅓ of their diet, so they are never finished on a pure grain diet.

Grass Finished Beef is offered only in mid-summer, August – September.

WHEN TO ORDER

We butcher our Beef every month, so just give me a shout to line up a time that works best for you!  A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your meat, this deposit goes towards your final total which is due upon delivery/pickup.

  • Half Beef: $800 deposit
  • Whole Beef: $1,600 deposit
  • Quarter Beef: $400 deposit
  • Eighth Beef: $200 deposit

This is certainly the most affordable way to feed a family!
