FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can we customize our cutting order?
Yes, Whole/Half/Quarter beef orders are fully customizable. You'll have the opportunity to call the butcher and customize your order if you want or they can do a standard cut for you. 1/8 Beef orders will be standard butcher cut.
How long after our butcher date until we can pick up our beef?
Each animal is a little different in how long it needs to hang to be perfectly tender, but you'll want to be ready to pick yours up anytime from about 2.5-3.5 weeks after your slaughter date. The butcher will call you when it's ready and freezer space is usually very limited there, so they appreciate if you can pick up within a few days of being notified. This will be in Ramona, Oklahoma.
Note, 1/8 Beef orders include free delivery and shipping statewide in Oklahoma. Larger orders (Quarter/Half/Whole Beef) can be delivered for a fee. Please inquire via email.
How will the beef be packaged?
Vacuum-sealed in clear plastic.
Are bones and organ meat available?
Yes for Quarter/Half/Whole orders, you'll want to call the butcher on your slaughter date and let them know you'd like to keep the organs. Also, remind them when you give your cutting orders that there should be organs with yours and that you'd like the bones.
What breed are the cattle?
They're our own breed, bred especially for our Oklahoma grasslands. A cross between black Angus and a French heritage breed, Salers. **Fun fact: Because our herd genetics have produced such superior quality beef, we also became a registered bull breedinig ranch and now ranches from all over the country buy our bulls to start or grow their herds** Read more about our breed and ranch HERE
Can the butcher do custom grinds?
I haven't asked for this, you can discuss it when you call them to let them know you'd like to keep the organs.
When will the next opportunity be?
Because our beef is grassfed and grass-finished (meaning it spends its entire life in the pasture, NO feedlots ever), our annual harvest season is when the cattle are nice and plump from the summer grasses, from August-November. That means if you miss this season, your next opportunity will be in August 2023.
Will you be selling a la carte by the cut or Sampler Packs again this year?
Yes, we will beginning in September.
What cuts come in a quarter/half/etc?
As a standard rule of thumb, all bulk beef packages include about 40% ground beef, 35% roasts, and 25% steaks.
There's always going to be some variance with each animal and each butcher, but a standard quarter might look like this (double for a Half):
40 lbs Ground Beef
3 lbs NY Strip Steak (about 4 steaks)
3 lbs Top Sirloin Steak (about 4-5 steaks)
4 lbs Rump Roast (2 roasts)
4 lbs Sirloin Tip Roast (1 roast)
2 lbs Flat Iron Steak (about 1-2 steaks)
1.5 lbs Filet (about 3-4 steaks)
6 lbs Stew Meat
5.5 lbs Short Ribs
4 lbs brisket
5 lbs Ribeye Steak (about 6 steaks)
5.5 lbs Chuck Roast (2 roasts)
