For those of you who want lots of beef in your freezer and may have ordered this way in the past from us or someone else, we are offering quarter-orders and half-orders again for 2017. To order CLICK HERE.
- 1/4 beef is about 120 to 150 lbs hanging weight*
- This will take up about three milk crates full of tightly packed meat
- Cuts come frozen in tightly wrapped brown butcher paper from a provincially inspected abattoir/butcher
- Cuts can include: a variety of steaks (sirloin, t-bone, rib steak, tenderloin, striploin), pot and lean roasts, lean ground and stewing beef, soup bones, and liver or other organs. We can’t do an itemized breakdown for these orders because people select various cuts (1 inch 11/2 etc) which result in a variety of assorted beef.
*Hanging weight is the weight of the carcass of beef when it is hanging to age at the abattoir. After the carcass has been butchered and packaged there is a loss of about 25%. You pay for the hanging weight (~100lbs), but receive 25% less (~75 lbs).
