Grass-fed beef is a wonderful eating experience.  All of our cattle are raised outdoors on high quality pastures or fed hay when pastures are not available (such as in the winter). This beef is lean and extremely tasty. We practice management-intensive grazing by rotating our cattle through different paddocks in order to keep the grass in a high quality, vegetative state.

The price of the grass-fed beef is comprised of two parts:

  • Our price of $4.25 per lb. hanging weight
  • The processing fee which is about $0.60 per lb. hanging weight

This comes to a total of about $4.85 per lb. hanging weight

The hanging weight is the weight of the cow after it has been butchered, but before it is divided up into different cuts of meats. The hanging weight is usually about 60% of the live weight of the cow.

We sell our grass-fed beef by the whole, half, or quarter. This means that if you buy a half of a cow then you will receive half of the meat that is on that cow. As far as payment goes, you will be paying only for the hanging weight of half of the cow. The same goes for buying a whole or a quarter.

We are asking for a 25% deposit of the estimated total purchase price. The remainder will be due when you pick up the beef. The deposit will reserve your beef. The deposit for a whole is $650; the deposit for a half is $330; the deposit for a quarter is $160.

The estimated price for a whole beef (including processing) is $2600, the estimated price for a half is $1300, and the estimated price for a quarter is $650. These numbers may change based on the exact weight of the cow when it is butchered.

Our beef should be ready by the end of May 2017.

Buying grass-fed beef by the whole, half, or quarter can yield considerable savings compared to buying separate packages of grass-fed beef. Because you are buying in bulk you will be able to save a substantial amount of money.

You will also be able to speak directly with the butcher shop and tell them how you would like your meat cut up. You will have a variety of different options, such as, how thick you would like your steaks, how many steaks per package, how many pounds of ground beef in a package, etc.

In summary, when you buy grass-fed beef from Hephzibah Farms you will be supporting a local business, you will be able to customize your meat to fit your specific needs, you will be able to experience considerable savings, and most importantly you will be obtaining a healthy food product that you can feel good about feeding your family.
