We raise grass fed beef from birth to ensure they are not injected with hormones or fed antibiotics or grain. Our animals eat a fresh salad bar each day in the grass growing season and eat dried grass (hay) in the winter. Animals are processed at 2 - 3 years of age. Wholesale (whole or half) beef is only available several times per year. You are purchasing a depositon a live animal.


*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***Deposits are for beef going to the butcher the month you select at checkout.  Once we have an appointment at the butcher for those dates, we'll let you know.

We will invoice you prior to pickup.  Your deposit will be deducted from the total price and is not refundable unless we cannot deliver your animal to the locker.



Processing cost to the butcher is SEPARATE and must be paid to them at pickup.  Butcher price varies based on weight, but will be $250 - $350 for each half.  Custom Processing is by USDA facility Chenoa Locker in Chenoa, IL.  The butcher will walk you through the cut order to get your beef exactly as you want it.  Beef will be available for you to pick up directly at the butcher in Chenoa, IL approximately 3 weeks after the animal is delivered.  Beef will be frozen by the butcher ahead of pickup.
