The cost difference between organic and conventional seed can be extreme as seen in the picture. We use organic seed almost entirely. Sometimes key varieties are not available organically. When this happens we purchase untreated seeds. We never use GMO derived seeds.

We buy our cattle from reputable dealer who knows what kind of animals we want. They are all brucellosis free and healthy when they arrive on our farm. All spring, summer and some of the fall, the cattle are pastured on a diverse mix of pasture grasses. In the winter the cattle are kept in our yard so that our fields are protected from the impact of their hooves. They are fed our own hay and sometimes, balage when the weather is really cold. We don’t feed our cattle grain, and so they don’t receive antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products in their feed. We use the manure and bedding from the yard as compost that is spread throughout the farm to balance the soil with organic matter. Because our cattle are raised completely on grass they are lean and have a delicious rich beef flavor. You can find more information about the advantages of grass fed meat from Jo Robinson’s web sitewww.eatwild.com. When cooking grass fed beef it is best to cook it slowly and at low temperatures, as the high heat will toughen the protein.

To order a quarter (or more) beef from us contact us to check on availability. We take a $20 deposit for each 1/4 you order at the time of ordering. This deposit places your order.

The beef should be generally ready for butchering in the winter months.

You can expect about 75-90lbs of meat (for a quarter order) to put into your freezer. You will need about 30-40 cubic feet of freezer space to store your ¼ order. You are charged on the hanging weight, which for a quarter is about 125-160lb. (What you can expect to take home is about 40% less than the hanging weight due to trimming and de-boning.) You also pay the butcher for their services which adds about $0.30/lb. (some unusual cutting instruction and cyrovac involve additional costs). Our butcher, McDonald’s Meats in Girard, PA. will cut your order and we will pick it up from them and bring your order back to our farm. It is approximately 10-15 days after butcher that your order will be ready. We’ll arrange with you a date when you can pick your order up from the farm. We’ll invoice you by mail based on the animals hanging weight. Our cow sizes and weights are variable, expected poundage is approximate. Quantities vary according to how you specify your butchering and how large or small the cow is. Here’s a very approximate breakdown of quantities for a quarter cow.
