PLEASE NOTE : These animals will go to harvest in June/July of 2022. Please also note that this set of halves and wholes will be available for pick up directly from our USDA inspected processor in Forsyth, GA (about a 1 hr drive from Atlanta heading southeast on I-75), if that is too far of a drive we can pick up on your behalf and arrange another pick up time from the farm for a fee of $100 that would be added to your bill.

For example, 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.

Questions: Please do not hesitate to contact us!

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