Half Beef - Paid to Stemple Creek Ranch
We offer half beef that is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished Angus beef, harvested all year round. It usually takes 5-6 weeks from the time of placing your order to picking up everything at the butcher shop. The price for a half beef is $5.75 per pound on the hanging weight. Hanging weights typically range from 300-350 pounds, resulting in a price range of $1,725 - $2,015 (does not include the cut and wrap fees). To purchase a half beef, you'll be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of $1,000. Once the weight of the beef is determined, you'll receive an invoice for the remainder due.
Butcher Selection & Fees - Paid to the Butcher Shop at Pick Up
You have the option to choose between two butchers for processing: Willowside Meats in Santa Rosa, CA or Bud's Custom Meats in Penngrove, CA. The butcher shop will communicate with you directly regarding the cut and wrap process and when they expect to have the meat ready for you. They will always strive to meet your preferred timeline. The custom cut and wrap fees for both butchers are around $1.10 per pound and charged on the hanging weight. Depending on the exact hanging weight, cut and wrap charges will amount to approximately $330-$385, paid directly to the butcher shop.
Cost Per Meal
When purchasing half beef, it is important to understand the value you get with each meal. On a 300-pound half beef, the take-home weight after processing will be about 210 pounds (approximately 70% yield of the hanging weight). The total cost, including butcher fees, will be around $2,055, which is less than $9.80 per pound. Assuming each meal consists of 1/2 pound portion, the cost per meal is approximately $4.90 for 100% grass-fed and grass-finished Angus beef.
