Some things to consider in comparing our prices with other beef purveyors:
For whole, halves, and quarters: is the beef sold by weight of meat in your freezer, or by hanging weight, dressed weight, carcass weight or live weight? Each of these will be significantly different; live weight might be 3X the weight of the meat that goes in your freezer. We sell by weight of meat in your freezer, since it is easiest for you to calculate, and thus leaves no room for surprises.
Is the meat dry-aged? Ours is dry-aged for 3 weeks, which reduces fluids, develops flavor and texture, making for a denser, superior product. It also decreases the weight further, making price comparisons by weight with non-dry-aged beef more difficult. In contrast, much supermarket beef is injected with fluids which boosts its weight.
How much fat are you buying with your beef? Our beef is very low in fat, so that more of what you receive will be usable meat. Rest assured, though, that if is cooked correctly, our beef is tender and delicious.
Are processing charges included? All fees are included in our prices, including all processing and packing charges.
If buying a whole, half or quarter, does the per pound price include soup bones and organ meats? We sell soup bones and organ meats separately at less than the per pound price for the rest of the animal, since many people prefer not to have them. We do recommend purchasing them, though; they are excellent!
