Grass Fed Beef For Sale

We have grass fed, organic, hormone and antibiotic free 2 year-old jersey steers for sale. We're selling them by the side which we estimate will be about 130 pounds. Our price is $6/pound finished in vacuum packaging. This is for all the cuts: burger, steaks, roasts, short ribs etc. If it's 130 pounds x $6/pound, the total for the side of beef will be $780. Of course, the price will be higher if its more than 130 lbs, less if not that much. We're taking them to the butcher on Oct 7, so need to have the orders placed before then. The beef should be ready on about Oct. 18. Let us know if you are interested.
P.S. The picture is of our new babies. The 2 year-old steers are MUCH bigger.

We buy grass fed beef every year out here from a local farmer. I hope you get yours all sold quickly! Our farmer friend has a waiting list for his beef. The way it is done out here, the processor has a mobile unit that goes to the farm and the beeves are done right in the pasture, then taken to the processor for hanging and packaging. We pay the farmer something like $2.20 per pound (based on hanging weight), then pay the processor a slaughter fee and so much a pound for cutting and wrapping. It keeps the farmer out of trouble with the gubment, 'cause he's selling live cows! And we get the tastiest, healthiest meat.
