TO ORDER: CALL 530-273-1025
Our beef is available April through December (depending on year-to-year weather conditions and their impact on the pastures), but you can order any time during the year. We move heaven and earth to accommodate orders with little lead time, but to best serve you we recommend that you place your order at least three weeks in advance. Let us know the month you want to pick up your order, and as that month nears we'll contact you to arrange the pickup date and location.
Because we're committed to producing a local product, we don't ship our beef. If you would like to find a source of pasture-raised beef that's closer to you, we highly recommend EatWild.com or LocalHarvest.org.
We sell our beef by the eighth, quarter, half, or whole animal. A quarter is approximately 70 to 90 pounds, which fills roughly seven cubic feet of freezer space. Cost is calculated on a per-pound basis across all types of cuts. Cost per pound is $8.50 per pound for quarter, half, and whole animal orders. Our family pack (eighth order) costs $8.95 per pound and weighs about 45 pounds. Eighth, quarter, and half orders include selected cuts from front and hind sections. Cuts vary in weight from approximately one-pound portions for hamburger, to roasts ranging from two to three and 3/4 pounds. Cuts are wrapped and labelled in convenient sizes, then vacuum packed and flash frozen. You can order or ask a question about orders anytime, online, by filling out our order form. Or call us at 530-273-1025. If you get our message, be sure to let us know the best time to reach you. We look forward to talking with you.
