Pick Up at Butcher
You will get approximately 200-210 pounds of frozen meat, consisting of approximately 20-25% steaks, 20-25% roasts, 40-45% ground beef, and 10-15% other cuts. Each cut will be individually wrapped (you can choose between shrink wrap, butcher paper or vacuum pack) and labeled with what is inside.
You may get some bones, fat, and offal (such as heart, liver, kidney, tongue, oxtail and cheeks), but please remember you are sharing your beef with another customer and so you may not receive all of these items.

We harvest 100% grass-fed beef all year round, but often times have a waiting list.
When you place your order, you can either pay in full, or pay a $100 deposit to secure a spot on our waiting list.
If you think or know that your animal will be harvested within 1 month of placing your order, please pay in full. Payment in full is required before we will harvest your beef for you.
We will communicate with you directly about when you want to pick up your meat, and when we will be able to have the meat ready for you. We will always do our best to meet your preferred timeline, but please keep in mind that since our cows only eat grass we are at the mercy of mother nature.
We will let you know when we are ready to harvest your animal.
Once it is harvested, beef takes about 2 weeks before the meat is ready to be picked up at the butcher shop.
Most of our quarters, halves, and whole beef will be processed at Bud’s Custom Meats in Penngrove. If you order a whole animal and wish to make special arrangements to use another butcher shop, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Bud’s Custom Meats will contact you directly about the cut and wrap of your meat, but please note that unless you order a half or whole animal, they cannot do any custom processing or wrapping. Quarter beeves will be cut and wrapped according to the their standard methods. If you desire customization in your cut and wrap instructions, please order a half of a beef or a whole beef.
You will pick up your cut and wrapped meat at Bud’s Custom Meats and pay the butcher shop directly for the cut and wrap. If you can’t come pick up your meat at the butcher shop, please see our 1/4 beef, 1/8 beef and 1/16 beef options that are available for shipping. We do not ship half or whole beef orders.
Generally, a 1/4 beef will be about 100-110 pounds of beef and the cut and wrap charges that you pay directly to Bud's Custom Meats will be around $150. A 1/2 beef will be about 200-210 pounds and the cut and wrap charges will be around $300. A whole beef will be about 400-420 pounds and the cut and wrap charges will be around $600.
Once you pay for the meat and the cut and wrap, depending on how much you purchase and the exact weight of the animal, you'll be paying between $7.50 and $9.50 per pound.
It is possible for bones and offal to be included in your order, but if you are purchasing less than a whole animal, please remember that you are sharing a whole animal and so the availability of the bones and offal will depend on the customers you are sharing your animal with. We cannot guarantee the amount of bones and offal that you will get from your order.
Your order will be comprised of approximately the following cuts of meat:
20-25% steaks 20-25% roasts 40-45% ground beef 10-15% short ribs, stew meat, etc.
