BUY LOVELL GRASSFED BEEF
100% TRUE GRASS FED BEEF
At Lovell Grass Fed Cattle Company, we sell Angus cattle that are born and raised on our farm and are 100% grass fed from start to finish thereby making our beef absolutely traceable back to a single animal. Our free range cattle graze on our organic pastures comprised of tall fescue, perennial rye grass, white clover, red clover and native grasses. Our cattle drink from natural spring fed water troughs and are given organic Fertrell minerals, organic Redmond sea salt and organic kelp. Our cattle are NEVER given any growth hormones or steroids. It is our collective mission to bring superior local grass fed beef to everyone in the area who is hungry for a more delicious and healthy way of life. We are proud to be an American Grassfed Association producer.
HOW TO ORDER
We sell our beef by the live weight. Our current beef prices are $2.20 per pound for a side of beef (half) and $2.10 per pound for a whole. On average our heifers and steer weigh 1200-1400 pounds. We harvest our animals throughout the year and use Wagners Meats in Mt. Airy, MD to harvest and custom cut the beef. Wagners Meats is an eighteen minute drive from our farm which enables us to deliver the animals the morning of harvest for less stress on the animal.
We require a deposit of $500 to reserve a half and $650 to reserve a whole. On the day of harvest we weigh the steer or heifer (average weight is 1200 pounds) and send an invoice for the remaining balance. The beef is dry aged for a minimum of 21 days and is custom cut to your specifications and flash frozen and vacuum sealed.
Wagner's then paid directly by you for the processing, dry aging, custom cutting and vacuum packaging which is presently $0.72 a pound on the hanging weight and a $60 per head processing charge or $30 for a half.*
Frequently Asked Questions:
How much meat do I take home from the processor? 40% of the actual weight of the steer or the heifer will be your take home weight. For example: Half of a 1200 pound steer (600 pounds) will yield approximately 348 pounds hanging weight and approximately 240 pounds will be the take home weight.
How much freezer space do I need? 9 cubic feet for a half (side) of beef. A good rule of thumb is 1 cubic feet of freezer space per 25-30 pounds of beef.
How is the beef packaged? Is the packaging BPA free? Wagners Meats flash freezes the beef and vacuum seals it in BPA free packaging.
Do you sell individual cuts of beef, bones or organ meats? We only sell by the half or the whole. Customers pick up their beef directly from the butcher.
