About our Grass-Fed Beef
Our small herd of grass-fed cattle are raised on our farm's pastures using a rotational grazing system. They are 100% percent grass fed and fed no grain their lifetime. They are hormone, steroid, and antibiotic free. The beef is harvested when the animals are about 2+ years old and is dry-aged for 2 weeks prior to cutting to enhance flavor and tenderness.
Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef
Purchasing our Beef
Beef will be available to purchase both in the summer and the fall. Reservations should be made now for 2016 beef.
Beef can be purchased as a quarter (also known as split side or mixed quarter), half, or whole. The beef is brought to Bittner's Eureka Locker in Eureka, IL, a small USDA inspected meat locker. Here the beef is aged for 14 days before it is cut to your specifications and then wrapped, frozen, and labeled. A quarter beef takes up around 5 cubic feet of space in a freezer, about the room in an average kitchen fridge/freezer freezer compartment.
Beef is sold by hanging weight. The packaged meat you will take home will be about 60% of the hanging weight after trimming and deboning. The processing fee for the butchering is paid directly to the meat locker at the time the beef is picked up. Prices below are for beef picked up at the meat locker. Additional delivery charges may apply.
