What do our cattle eat?

Our cattle are raised on range and finished on our best pastures. They always have access to dozens of plant species, including various grasses, legumes, wildflowers, shrubs. Cows will eat 60+ plant species a day given the opportunity. They can detect nutritional deficiencies within minutes and will correct their diet accordingly. Other than that, we supplement with mineral salt.

Can you ship my meat?

We ship orders of 20 lbs or less on Mondays through Wednesdays. If you would like 50 lbs or more to be shipped, please reach out and we can arrange for a custom shipping option.

1-2 Ground Shipping is available in the yellow/orange zone shown on the map below. 2-day Air is available to the green zones. 

Please review our Policies before you place an order to be shipped.

Do you deliver?

We can delivery to Garfield and Mesa counties. We also offer free delivery for orders that are $250 more in this area.

Will my meat be frozen?

Yes. Frozen meat is actually a higher quality product than fresh meat. The freeze/thaw process is an extension of dry aging. The freezing further concentrates the flavor while the thawing disrupts the sarcomere bonds, further tenderizing the meat.

When will my Quarter, Half or Whole Beef be ready?

We process custom orders throughout the year, usually every 3 months or so. Please reach out if you would like an exact date.

Can I get sausages and jerky for a bulk order?

Yes. If you order a Quarter, Half, or Whole you can choose from various sausage and jerky flavors the butcher offers. There is an additional cost per pound for the processing of sausages and jerky.

How much freezer space do I need?

For order 20 lbs or less you can fit the beef into a standard freezer. Depending on the size of your order, a chest freezer of some sort will be necessary to store your beef for larger orders. A half cow is about 200 lbs of meat and can fit in a 6 cu ft freezer.
