Our cattle are raised in Oakwood, Illinois on our family farm. Our freezer beef is processed locally at a family owned, USDA inspected facility in Homer, Illinois.
Buying beef in bulk for your freezer is an exciting investment. You are guaranteeing yourself a constant supply of high quality and flavorful beef readily available at your enjoyment for a fraction of the cost if you were to buy it at the store.
Our current price for a quarter of a cow is $500, which includes the butcher's fee. You receive about 100lbs of beef with about 60% being steaks and roasts and 40% being ground beef.
There are many different cuts available when you purchase freezer beef. The most popular choices include 2" thick tenderloin (fillet), 1" thick boneless ribeye and NY strip steaks, sirloin steaks, chuck and rump roasts, rolled rump roasts, brisket, short ribs, flank steak, and of course hamburger.
A mixed quarter beef will be a half of beef divided in two. That means you get a mixture from the front and rear of the steer. You still get all of the variety a half of beef gives you, but in a smaller quantity. It is a great option for first time buyers or smaller households.
Meet Your Beef offers an innovative experience that not only allows you to choose the beef you serve your family but to also interact with the cow your family chooses while it is being raised.
