What is a custom order? Basically you are purchasing a ¼ or ½ carcass that is hanging in a controlled temperature environment to which a skilled butcher will custom cut your beef to exactly your specifications. This is the most economical way to purchase our 100% grass fed beef and it is the best for us “the farmers” because it is 100% direct from farmer to consumer. Sides and quarter cuts of beef are year round, please expect the entire process to take up to one month. We make sure beef is properly dry aged and custom cut, packed and frozen.
Half or Quarter Beef ***
$6.25/lb. custom cut and wrapped.
Weight of half beef is between 250lbs – 350 and a quarter is between 125lbs – 175lbs.
Ordering beef: email your preferred date and I will reply to confirm availability. Then you fill out the butcher cut sheet and send it back to me, which provides details to our butcher for your order. I can email you a cut sheet or you can get one here: the Beef Cut Sheet.
Please complete delivery section on the Beef Cut Sheet. $150 is the generally what it cost to ship a custom order in Ontario.
How much is a quarter beef…….roughly 5 boxes and each box contains roughly 20lbs. Below pictures are an actual quarter beef we shipped to one of our happy customers. A side of beef is double this amount.
