Deposit for side of grass fed, grass finished beef
All of our beef is grass fed and grass finished. We do not feed grain. We run South Poll cattle here on Liberty Hill Farm. They have a smaller frame, and are uniquely suited not only for our climate and farm conditions, but also for grass finishing. The care that we take with our herd shows in the quality of the meat.
This side of beef will be taken to Powell Meats in Clinton, MO in June of 2021 for processing. (Yes, we already have our appointment!) We will give them your name and phone number and they will call you to get cutting instructions. You are welcome to go to powellmeatco.com. Scroll to the bottom of their site to see their beef cut sheet.
The final weight and price of the side will be determined by the hang weight at the processor. We understand that it's important for our customer to have a "ball park" figure for what a side of beef will cost. A total cost (including your bill from the processor) is $1,150 - $1,300 per side. We will send you an invoice with the final balance due for the animal once we have hang weight from the processor.
Processing cost is dependent upon the cuts you get. For example, ground costs a bit more than cut, and hamburger patties will cost more than ground. Altogether, this is always cheaper than buying meat by the package, but it may take a bit to get used to paying for two separate things: 1. the meat itself, and 2. the service of processing. Altogether, you will first pay your deposit here online. Once we have the hang weight from the processor, we will send you an invoice with the balance due. Last, you will pay Powell Meats for your custom processing of the animal.
As soon as we have your balance due on the animal, (and the processing is done) you are free to pick up the meat from the processor. We give the processor your name and number, and they will contact you as soon as your meat is ready. You will have a balance due for them as well. We will also be picking up the meat from the processor when they are done. If you would like us to get yours too, please just let us know and we can meet in Warrensburg, or you can pick up at our farm.
The great thing about purchasing sides is you get to choose exactly how you want your beef! Here at Liberty Hill Farm, we use a lot of ground beef, and the chuck roast is the only roast we like. So, we keep only the chuck roasts, and have the rest of the roasts put into ground! We like our steaks thick! This is all part of the cutting instructions for the processor. You get to choose to keep organ meats like the liver and heart. You can also keep bones for your canine friends - or for making bone broth.
