Beef: Whole Cow Deposit

$500.00

Non-refundable Deposit; Balance due upon pick up.

PLEASE NOTE : We are now taking deposits for  March-June ’24 harvest. See below for more information and to place your deposit!

Our whole cow price is: $5.25/lbs. hanging weight vacuum sealed in plastic. This is inclusive of all processing costs, aging, freezing fresh and packaging. Our average hanging weights typically come in around 750 lbs. (whole cow) which yields approximately 400 lbs.-450 lbs. of take home yield depending on how you choose to have the steer butchered.

All of our steers are butchered at two family owned USDA inspected processing facilities. Midsouth Packers is located in Forsyth, Ga. and Blalock Meats is located in Rabun Gap, Ga. Halves and wholes can be picked up directly from our processor or for those processed at Midsouth – we can transport via freezer truck to our farm in Clarkesville for a $100 transport fee.

March ’24 – June ’24 harvest dates: Below please choose your preferred date/location. They are first come, first served. Deposit fee will be credited towards final balance. If you see a date you’d prefer but it is out of stock – please give us a call! We may have two halves available to convert to a whole for that date.

– March 21, 2024 — Blalock Meats in Rabun Gap, Ga.
– We are sold out of April and May harvest slots*
– June 13th, 2024 — Midsouth Packers in Forsyth, Ga.

*Customers pick up their beef directly at the processor. If Midsouth Packers is too far of a drive for pick up, customers can choose to pay a $100 transport fee to have beef freighted to teXga for pick up. The pick up option can be determined closer to harvest date and will be applied to the remaining balance invoice.

The pick up option can be determined closer to harvest date and will be applied to the remaining balance invoice. Beef will be available for pick up approximately three weeks after harvest date.

**In reference to take home weights: if you choose bone in ribeyes, Porterhouses, bone in chuck roast and bone in shoulder roast your take home weight will climb higher although you’ll still be getting the same amount of beef (just more bone). Another benefit to ordering a whole/half is that you also get soup bones to make your own beef stock as well as some of the more creative cuts such as liver, heart, tongue and oxtail. These cuts are collectively referred to as the offal and with some creativity and proper preparation they can make a good meal!

The easiest way to look at the value proposition of buying a half/whole is that you’ll end up saving approximately 25% versus buying that same quantity of beef from us in our small bundles throughout the year.

When you place your deposit for a whole, we will then reserve an animal for you + harvest date. We’ll also help you determine what cuts are best for your family and we’ll complete your processing ‘cut sheet’ together. For a whole cow we can submit up to two cut sheets to our processor.

How much freezer space do I need for a Whole cow? We recommend a small chest-type freezer. 14 cubic foot model;  30 lbs. of beef = 1 cubic foot of freezer space
