How it's Sold
At Blue Ridge Farm we sell our beef in quarters. Meaning that you are taking delivery of 25% of the meat of that steer. The quarters are mixed for all customers and no one receives just the front or the back of the steer. Your beef will include a variety of cuts from premium filets and ribeye steaks to rump roast, brisket and ground beef. We sell our beef by the industry standard - hanging weight. The hanging beef is allowed to dry age in a cooler for up to three weeks, providing you with the best quality, best tasting grass fed beef available.
Cut breakdown (Large Steer): We will remove the bone when appropriate and cut the beef to your specification. With that you will receive about 35 pounds of steak, 35 pounds of roast and 50 pounds of ground beef and stew equaling around 120 pounds per quarter steer for a large animal. We also have smaller steers available for the space constrained or those looking for a smaller finished order.
Our beef is all processed locally by a very experienced butcher. Local processing ensures that your steer is not being shipped long distances in a trailer which causes stress to the animal and adds adrenaline to the meat which impacts its taste. Our customers will have the opportunity to fill out a "cut sheet" which is your order to the butcher for how you'd like your beef cut with certain guidelines. Your cut sheet also allows you to specify how many pounds you want your individual packages to contain and specifications of your steaks. Once your order has been processed it will then be place in cold storage for 2-3 weeks thus producing a "Dry Aged Beef" with a quality you could fined at the best steakhouses.
Our beef is priced at $7.00 per pound, based on the hanging weight of the steer.
