5. Flank
6. Short Loin
7. Sirloin

  • If you are submitting multiple orders for several customers but plan to pick up for them, please label the various orders with letter designations. (ie Smith A, Smith B, Smith C)
  • Help us prevent duplicate accounts by listing your spouse.
  • Used for notification of completed order
    Most orders can be delivered to a farm or business location for $75.
  • When purchasing a quarter there are a few limitations that may cause us to make a cutting instruction change. We have to match your order with a partner order as there really is no quarter beef but rather we are sharing a half beef between two people. Ground beef should be done in 1 lb packages. Steak thinkness and type of steaks have to match as well. If they do not, we may make a change to make sure you get the equal quantity of good meat into your freezer. Thank you for your trust and understanding in getting you all the options possible!
    Click Yes, if you will be selling by the cut. Click no, if the product is going into your freezer.
