Beef CAN be grass-finished and taste amazing! It is an art and takes highly nutritious grass, correct animal handling, and good genetics coming together on nature's schedule.
We raise Red and Black Angus cattle. Our herd has been built around the ability to stay fat and healthy on grass alone. We believe that many individuals and families understand the health and wellness benefits of grass-finished beef, but are disappointed by the eating experience when they get their hands on some. There is a reason for that and we understand it. Unlike many of the grass-"fattened" animals out there, our cattle consistently finish with exceptionally high marbling and lots of fat cover.
Our grazing program ensures that the cattle always have abundant energy-rich forage in front of them. We put a lot of thought and energy into raising happy, low-stress beef. The animals are professionally slaughtered, processed, and packaged by our local and provincially inspected butcher shop, Pincher Creek Meat Processors. Our goal is to provide truly delicious, truly healthy, natural beef at a reasonable price.
We sell by the whole, half, or quarter; or talk to us about live cattle or custom order options. Price is $5.75 per pound of the hanging carcass weight. This includes all regular butchering fees. (extras such as jerky, smoking, vacuum-packing will be an additional charge.)
QUARTER BEEF- 95-105 lbs cut and wrapped $1010.00
HALF BEEF- 200-240 lbs cut and wrapped $2020.00
WHOLE BEEF- 420-450 lbs cut and wrapped $4040.00
*these numbers are approximate, each animal and cutting order has variations.
* All beef is packaged in brown paper and ready for the freezer.
Whole and Half beef orders are fully customize-able. Quarters will be cut to Fishburn's Standard cut list which gets you all of the top steaks, a nice variety of roasts, and a bunch of top quality lean ground beef. A quarter takes up 3-4 cubic ft. in a freezer.
Our animals finish with enough back fat to allow a 21 day hang. This is rare with grass-finished animals and optimizes tenderness and flavor. Beef will be available to pick up at Pincher Creek Meats 20 to 30 days after the butcher date.
A down payment will be taken to secure your order: Qrtr-$200, Half-$400, Whole-$800.
We also try to keep a good selection of meat in the freezer to sell by the cut. Check out our price list and feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call, email, or text to place an order and confirm availability.
