Our Grass Fed Beef

100% Grass Fed Beef 


Terry is a local 2nd generation Black Angus farmer, he has advised us on methods to help our small operation
start and stay 100% grass-fed.
Years ago I was feeding my dogs grass fed beef raw bones before it became fashionable. Learning from my breeding partners in Italy, I understood the value of raw meats and their effect on our Cane Corso’s health.  Below you will see two videos  I made about 3 years ago to show you, at that time I was buying organic grass-fed beef from a farmer in Northern Va. He was finishing with grain, so I decided that the only way to raise the meat I wanted, was to finish them myself. I would also be able to see first hand that they were finished with 100% Grass, the nutrition in 100% grass-fed makes a big difference. Please watch the video below that was made 6 years ago to understand my thoughts on grass-fed beef bones. 
 

 
I recently finalized my purchase after years of careful research with 100% grass-fed beef that we will harvest and may breed on our farm in the future. Here is a video to show you the cows.
 

 
 
 
It’s true that all beef is not raised equal and the feed is a large determining factor in whether or not your beef will be nutritious or not.  Well, we can help you with that. Our Small Farm is now taking orders for the Fall sale of our naturally raised Angus beef. Our cows are raised on beautiful green pastures and are NEVER given grain like most grass-fed operations, our beef is 100% GRASS-FED. 
You can purchase either a whole share 1/2 share ($4.80lb.), 1/4 share ($4.90lbs.). Price is based on hanging weight and includes all processing costs. A typical Angus cow produces between 450lbs-575lbs of finished beef (depending upon the size of the cow) which includes everything from delicious steaks to hamburger. This makes purchasing your beef in bulk both economical and healthy. With everything we know about additives, preservatives, and hormones being added to our food supply, wouldn’t it feel good to at least know where your beef is coming from? We are presently accepting non-refundable deposits. Supply is limited, so please contact us if you are interested or if you would like more information on our beef. The beef is expected to be ready for pick up in late September. We look forward to hearing from you. Import: We live in central Virginia and at the moment are only able to deliver locally, you are welcome to come and pick up your order directly from our farm or our USDA processing plant.

grass fed beef order richmond va

At $4.90/lb (hanging weight), this is a cost-effective way to get 100% grass-fed beef.  Pick it up at our farm butcher or have it delivered to your home.

The standard quarter cow comes with the following cuts:

Ground beef (1 lb./package)
Bones (3 lbs./package)
Brisket
Short ribs
Soup bones
Rib steaks (bone-in)
Chuck Eye, Ranch, Denver, and Flat Iron Steaks
Bone-In Chuck Roasts (approximately 3 lbs per roast)
Tri-Tip OR Flank Steak
Porterhouse and T-bone Steaks
Sirloin Steaks (bone-in)
Eye Round Roast (approximately 3 lbs)
Fajita Meat (from Top Round)
Shaved Beef (from Bottom Round – great for stir fry, cheese-steaks, pizza, etc.)
Sirloin Tip Roast
Optional organs (heart, liver, kidney, sweetbread)

A quarter cow is great for a small family or an individual that eats a lot of beef.  You can expect to take home between 95 and 115 pounds of meat and bones.

The total cost is based on the weight of the cow as recorded by the butcher, plus the butchering costs.  The hanging weight (HW) is the weight of the animal when it is ready to be butchered.  Depending on how you have it butchered, the take-home weight will be 60-70% of the hanging weight, including the weight of bones but not fat.

A typical hanging weight for a quarter cow is between 150 and 175 lbs, and the butchering costs average out to about $1.00/lb HW.  You also have the option of picking up at the farm or having it delivered (with an additional delivery fee).  So you can expect a total cost between $850 and $1,200.

 
1/4 Share Estimate:
180-230lbs. Hanging Weight
112-144lbs. Finished Weight
$1050-$1300 Price

black angus grass fed beef

At $4.80/lb (hanging weight), this is a great way to save on getting your locally-raised 100% grass-fed beef.  Pick it up at our farm or have it delivered to your home quarterly, or bi-monthly.  After you make your deposit we will help you (if you’d like the help!) select your options for how to have it butchered.

With a half cow, you get one side of the animal.  This means you can select one way to cut each section: Chuck, Brisket, Shank, Rib Steak/Roast, Short Ribs, T-Bone/Porterhouse, or NY Strip/Filet, Flank, Sirloin Steaks, Sirloin Tip, Top Round, Bottom Round, Eye Round, and Tri-Tip.

A half cow is great for a small family, or for a couple that likes to eat a lot of beef.  You can expect to take home between 180 and 210 pounds of meat, plus any bones and fat you would like to keep.

The total cost is based on the weight of the cow as recorded by the butcher, plus the butchering costs.  The hanging weight (HW) is the weight of the animal when it is ready to be butchered.  Depending on how you have it butchered, the take-home weight will be 60-70% of the hanging weight, including the weight of the bones but not the fat.

A typical hanging weight for a half is between 300 and 350 lbs, so you can expect the beef to cost between $1,700 and $2,350.  The butchering costs average out to about $1.00/lb HW, so you can expect that to cost between $300 and $350.
