  • Grass fed holy grail!

    I have found it. Grass fed critter at an insanely cheap price... AND IT'S LOCAL!
    Now I am very sad that we don't own a coffin freezer big enough to buy anything.
    SOMEONE BUY ME A COFFIN FREEZER & A NEW HOUSE TO FIT IT INTO!

    Utah Natural Meat - Beef

    $300 for 300 lbs of grass fed beef. As Super Grover would say "Hubba-Wha?!"

    Sorry to disappoint, but you do realize $300 is just the deposit, right? It says you'll pay $3.50/lb total, which is still a great price!

          I'm new to this. Don't you just pay $300 and go pick up the cuts you've already paid for? They say $300 pays for 300 lbs.

            The $300 deposit is to reserve a whole cow for butchering. The final total cost will be whatever hanging weight your cow happens to be.

            So if your cow is 300 lbs, then your total cost is 300 x $3.50 = $1050

            1. All deposits are non-refundable.
            2. Our prices are based on the hanging weight of the cow which is the weight of the meat before packaging. The hanging weight of a whole Corriente cow can range from 300 lbs to 450 lbs.
            3. When you place your deposit you will receive an order confirmation by e-mail. Once the meat is at the butcher for processing we will know the exact hanging weight of your order. At that time we will contact you by e-mail (or phone if you prefer) with the balance due and details for pick-up from our farm in West Jordan, Utah. We normally schedule pick-up for Saturday mornings.

              You could reserve a 1/2 or 1/4 cow for less money, but the price per pound will be the same.

              1/4 of a 300 lb cow is 75 lbs x $3.50 = Total cost of $262.50

              And you might have room in your freezer for 1/4 cow!

                And this is an excellent price. The cheapest grass-fed hamburger I can get is $4.50/lb.

                  Hubby said the only way we'd be able to fit 1/4 cow in our freezer is if there was absolutely NOTHING else in there. Our freezer isn't much bigger than one of those picnic styrofoam ice chests you'd take to an amusement park.

                  I asked the farm directly and they explained it to me. You get to subtract the $300 from your final price since it's a down payment.

                  so, if I've got it right in my head now, it's $75 for 1/4 cow. Let's say the hanging weight is 75 lbs, so that would be $262.50 ($3.50 x 75), minus the $75 I already paid.
                  right?
                  That averages down to $3.50/lb

                  gall darnit I want a coffin freezer or a neighbor who'll share one!

                  EDIT: Just realized all my math was in vain cuz it was $3.50 to begin with. LOL. I'm such a dork.

                  Sunflower Market recently had grass fed ground beef on sale $2.99/lb
                  I had to bring a baseball bat with me to fend off the other moms from the aisle!

                    I picked up a decent-sized freezer on kijiji for $60. People sell them pretty often--watch your local classifieds (print or online) and you can score a good deal.

                        Look into renting a frozen food locker near you. Worth it if you can find a butcher that still rents them. And no worries about your power going out and losing all your meat.

                          Ooh, good idea! It's not the trouble of being able to afford a freezer. It's that we have NO ROOM.

                            Considering Slanker sells it's grass-fed beef at roughly double that per pound, $3.50/lb is an amazing deal.
