This is a custom product offered by a go-getter young lady on the Farmivore crew who is emerging as a burgeoning local rancher. Due to regulatory bottlenecks, she is required to sell Live Animals Only, instead of packaged meat. The product sold on this page is 1/4 of a cow, although Emily (the rancher) will connect you with the local butcher who will process, package and freeze your meat cuts for an additional charge. See below for details.
Product: One quarter of a cow, locally, humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone free. These cows have been ranch raised, grass fed and grass finished, never sent to a feedlot or raised on concrete.
Each quarter cow provides an estimated 120-130 lbs. of mouth watering meat. Final weight will be determined only after slaughter and processing.
Your cost ends up being somewhere between $11.50 and $12.50 per LB of finished meat, once the butcher processes your cow, depending on the final weight of the animal at slaughter.
The short answer to this question is, “not organic – yet”. The process of certifying a ranch is a lengthy one and although we would like to eventually be able to advertise as organic, we’re not there yet! That being said, these cows are pastured raised naturally on hundreds of acres of unsprayed pasture land. I welcome any additional questions about how my cows are raised and fed! Thank you for working with me as I start my ranch and work to get you the best locally raised natural meat possible.
