Beef and Lamb
We are not yet taking orders for beef and lamb. Check back in mid summer and then you’ll be first in line.
When we do resume sales the cost will be $5.50 per pound hanging weight, including basic processing.
I know, it gets a little complicated. I’ll try to make it easy.
Chances are your beef is going to be somewhere on either side of 130 pounds hanging weight. You won’t get that much meat after it’s processed. Plan on around 75-80 pounds frozen in your freezer. If you want to specify your custom cuts, we’ll send you a cut sheet and you can work with the processor to cut your roasts and steaks the way you like them. If you don’t want to think about cut sheets, that’s cool. Just ask us for the Rancher’s Choice and we’ll cut it the way we like it. (It’s great no matter how you slice it.) Your quarter beef is a mixed quarter, so it has a nice mix of steaks, roasts and ground beef. It’s quite a lot of ground beef.
The processor is in Woodville, WI, and you have two ways to get your meat: Drive to Woodville or take delivery in the Twin Cities ($25 delivery fee). It’s a bit of a drive, about 30 minutes east of Hudson, but it’s a cool place and can be a nice little road trip in the fall. We’ll let you know when it’s ready and you can pick up your beef there. They have a lot of other really great meats and they are award-winning sausage makers so you may come home with some really yummy extra stuff. And speaking of their award-winning sausage, they make a delicious nitrate-free hot dogs, snack sticks and summer sausage for Crazy Rooster customers, all made with 100% grass-fed beef. So you can have a hot dog and not feel guilty about it. (Specialty cuts like this are a nominal additional fee.)
