We are dedicated to providing you with great tasting grass-fed beef that fits within your beliefs and helps you fit within your belt-line, and your budget. To do so, we raise and finish our cattle in a natural way, on well-managed pasture and high quality hay.
If you are new to our grass-fed meat, we hope it will change the way you eat and think about meat, when you realize that it's both good for you and actually improves the environment.
The term "simply delicious" means that our grass-fed beef is raised as nature intended, without the following additives:
No antibiotics or other drugs
No Genetically Modified Grains
No herbicides or Pesticides
Raising our livestock on diverse, well-managed pastures keeps them in peak health, so that you can eat healthy too. In addition, it allows us to produce great tasting meat without compromising the environment. By purchasing from Liberty Valley Farm, you can nourish your family, and be part of revitalizing the land and local economy, at the same time.
Pleasant scenes are an added benefit to the way we farm. When you purchase meat you are shaping the future landscape for you and your children. Would you rather live next to this or a feedlot?
Choose grass-fed, instead! From Liberty Valley Farm
Ordering Quarters, Halves, Whole Beef
-What happens when we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef?
When we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef, we try to give you a date when it will go to the meat processor. When the steer goes to the processor we will call you to get your instructions for how you want your beef cut. The beef will then dry-age in a climate controlled cooler for 7-10 days before being cut. The reason it is dry aged, is that dry-aging helps tenderize the meat. Cutting, packaging and freezing takes another 2-3 days, so your order will be ready for pickup about two weeks after the date the animal went to the processor. You will pick up the meat at the processor, and at that time, we ask that you pay them for processing and also write a separate check to Liberty Valley Farm for the beef.
-Decisions, decisions...Figure out how to have your beef order cut. Read through our guide to selecting your cuts.
If you want to order a quarter please read this.
If you are interested in a half, or whole skip this paragraph:
If you ordered a quarter, what you will receive is commonly called a “split half.” Because, the cuts of meat in the front half differs dramatically from the back half, we evenly divide the cuts between the two to make it a fair offering. This will somewhat limit how you can have your beef cut, as it is a compromise with the other customer, who will be sharing the half. Again, this applies only to quarter orders. If you ordered a half or whole beef, you won’t have to split the cuts.
The cost is $4.00/lb hanging weight, again, this does not include processing, which runs about $0.50 per pound. The hanging weight is the weight of the carcass, before it is processed into individual cuts. Your take home weight of meat will be about 25%-35% less than the hanging weight depending on how you have the meat cut.
Average hanging weights:
Quarter: 120-160 lbs = approximately $450-600 for the meat, and about $75-100 for the processing.
Half: 240-320 lbs = approximately $900-$1200 for the meat, and about $150-200 for the processing.
Whole: 480-640 lbs = approximately $1800-2400 for the meat, and about $300-$350 for the processing.
