1/2 Beef Deposit
Love the selection of whole beef order, but don't have the freezer space, then our half beef option is the best for you. Great for small families, the variety and cost savings compared to buying individual cuts to feed the whole group are winners. Half beef (side of beef) orders will require the use of a chest or upright freezer, as most traditional refrigerators/freezer combos will not hold this much. Roughly 8 cubic feet of space required.
Our half beef ranges from 200- 300 pounds of finished beef product. If you are looking for the very best variety of cuts, this option is for you. Since some cuts only produce 1 per animal, these rare cutts may not exist in your half order. We do our best to split these single items between the two halves so both receive the same pounds of meat. Each animal differs, but our efforts to raise the best animal possible ensures you are going to get the best cuts possible.
The cuts usually consists of 20-25% steaks, 25-35% roasts, stew meat and short ribs..... and 40-50% ground beef. That means you can get premium cuts such as Filet Mignon and T-Bones for as low as $6.00 a pound.
Your final 1/2 beef price is figured on hanging weight which is not determined until the beef is processed. Based on our last 20 hanging weights a 1/2 beef will be aprox. $1450 with $200 in processing. Your beef will be processed at Greenhills Fresh Meats in Brookfield, Meadville Locker in Chillicothe or Rains Natural Meats in Gallatin depending on our appointment avaialbility. All meat is custom processed and packed per your specifications and then double layer wrapped for longevity in your freezer. If this is your first time doing this no worries, our butchers are great about walking you through and making sure you have the best cuts. You are responsible for picking up your beef once beef is processed (unless previously discussed). Balance is due upon completion of your order. Deposits are non-refundable.
We don't process beef share orders until they are placed with a deposit. After placing your beef share order we will call you from Pasture to Plate Co. to discuss any preference options that may be available for processing your order and to explain the expected timeline for delivery of your order. Please be sure to leave us your email when paying your deposit so that we may send you a contract as well.
