How Does Buying Farm Fresh Meat Work?

First, check your email! We send out newsletters to folks on our meat order list when we are getting ready to take the meat in for processing. This is when you make a reservation. Next, our office will contact you and take the custom cutting instructions for your order, it is rather easy, and we are here to walk you through the process in the chance you have not done this sort of thing before. Then the meat “goes to market” for processing and when it is ready, our office contacts you again and you come to the farm to pick up and pay for your meat.

Sounds pretty simple, right? It is!

One last thing to note is that our beef and pork are sold by hanging weight. Hanging weight is a term that describes the weight of a side of beef or pork as it hangs up in a meat cooler with the useable cuts intact. As it is processed, fat and bone are removed so the weight of the meat you receive is actually less than the hanging weight. Our cows and hogs generally retain 55%- 75% of their weight.
