BEEF SHARES (10, 40 & 80 lb Orders)

WHAT IS A SHARE?

A share is a commitment the farmer and the consumer make to each other. You as a customer pay in the spring/summer in advance and we deliver your beef through the late fall. The share is a mix of different grass fed beef cuts. 

WHY PAY AHEAD?

We purchase calves called stockers in the spring to be raised on pasture all summer long. We also have lots of fencing maintenance costs in the spring, long before we make any money from selling the beef. By paying in advance you are supporting us on our farm when we need it the most!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

There are a few different options for share size. You order nowand receive your beef in Mid/Late November on a weekend. Time and date will be determined later and communicated with you well in advance.

We deliver in the CITY OF OTTAWA and locations off HWY 417 all the way to Petawawa.

WHEN DO I NEED TO SIGN UP BY?

March 31st, 2018. This also means FULL payment or $200 deposit for quarter orders is due or sent out by this date.

WHAT CUTS ARE IN MY SHARE?

Approximately 50% ground and stew, 25% steaks, 25% roasts

Ten lbs of steaks (a mix of striploin, tenderloin, rib, sirloin & marinating steaks)

Ten lbs of roasts (a mix of pot, blade, sirloin tip, rump & inside round)

WHAT SIZE SHARE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

That depends on how many people are in your household, how much beef you eat and the size of freezer you own! Please take a look at the table above to get an idea of what you should order.

QUARTER ORDERS

This order is for people who eat about 2 lbs of meat a week, or 8lbs per month.

We charge $7.25/lb for hanging weight

*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 (~130lbs), but receive 25% less (~98 lbs).

A quarter animal is approximately 125-140 lbs hanging weight*

This will take up about four milk crates full of tightly packed meat. Milk crates are ~1 cubic foot.

Cuts come frozen in tightly wrapped brown butcher paper from a provincially inspected abattoir/butcher

Cuts included are: 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

Why am I charged by hanging weight?

The abattoir/butcher weighs the carcass while it is hanging on the rail. They charge us per pound of that weight for processing. They let us know what that weight is. We can then just take that weight to charge you without re-weighing all that meat again. Our price/pound that we charge you reflects the 25% loss of weight from hanging to processed.
