In 2017, cattle are scheduled to market in January, February and April so far. Additional dates will be added later in the year.
The hog plan in uncertain right now, but most likely they will go to market in August.
The best way to know what's going on is to get on our email distribution list. I only send about 12 emails per year, so you won't be swamped with communications. Additionally no one will see your email address and we don't share or sell any customer information. The Contact Us page will allow you to easily communicate this information.
For details on how we raise our animals, please refer to our Home page.
Freezer meat is based on availability and sold by the half or whole animal. Freezer meat is sold based on the hanging weight with the buyer paying all processing costs.
Whole, half or quarter beef
For half or whole animal, all meat is processed to your specifications. We will let you know about animal availability and if the timeframe is acceptable we require a deposit. If you are interested, we will send you a document with additional detail.
There may be a wait for an animal to be ready, so if you are interested please let us know early.
All pricing based on hanging weight.
