Half Beef Deposit

Half Beef Deposit

Custom Cut Half

For Fall 2024


Non refundable deposit for half of a custom cut grass fed, grass finished beef.


Note:  Note: Disregard the dates offered on checkout.  I will follow up to let you know when your beef will be going to the processor.  Don't hesitate to email or text with any questions.

Have a freezer you are ready to fill?

Purchasing a half beef is hands down the #1 way to keep your family well fed, with maximum variety and maximum value.  

Customize the butchering instructions to best suit your household:  do you like your steaks thick or thin?  More roasts or more ground?  Want to keep the bones and organs?  (New to this? Don't worry.  I'll help!)

[Want the beef without the customization or the unknown pricing?  Check out our 1/8 beef or 1/4 beef bundles.] 

This non refundable deposit is applied to the final cost of your beef, a grass fed, grass finished beef raised by Heritage Trail Farms in Prosperity, PA.

Final half beef cost is $6.75/lb hanging weight, inclusive of processing charge, delivery of live animal to processor and transport of meat back to our farm for pick up. (Home delivery or pick up at one of our drops may be available for an additional fee)

Hanging weight is the hot carcass weight of the animal after skin, organs, etc are removed.  Hanging weight is greater than the actual cut "packaged weight" you take home, due primarily to loss of water and bone. 

Expect hanging weight of a half beef to be around 250-350 lbs. 
Bone out averages 47-57% (typical is 53%), yielding take home cuts around 130-185 pounds, or about $12.75 per lb of take home cuts.

Remaining balance is due as cash or check at time of pick up.  (Credit card payment of balance is available for 3% additional charge.)
