We offer beef for sale by the quarter and side, and as our supply allows, by the cut from our freezers. We currently have some inventory – please get in touch about individual cuts to our email email@example.com and we will arrange pick up or delivery.
Our cattle enjoy the highest quality of life, are free from medications and added hormones, and move all over the farm: managing our grasslands, opening up marginal areas, and grazing cover cropped sections of our fields. We are blessed with prime prime forages here, fattened cattle on grass.
Moving cattle across public roads with a pail of beer grains… Fun!
Buying by the Quarter or Side
Shorthorns and Angus stripgraze a fresh break of cover crop on next year’s strawberry patch.Most of us don’t buy meat by the side: but if you’ve got yourself a deepfreeze (or are willing to invest in one), it’s a great way to have affordable, high quality food on hand all of the time.
Our beef is sold by the pound @ $5.50/ based on the hanging weight. This price includes all butchering fees and associated taxes.

We ask for a small down payment on beef to reserve your meat: $150/quarter, $300/half, $600/whole
We are sending cattle on regular basis throughout 2021. Sign up early to ensure your supply!
We ask that our customers meet us when we return from the butcher with the frozen meat: you will have notice in advance of this date. Your meat will come wrapped and frozen: we recommend coolers or sturdy containers to bring it the rest of the way home.

New life means spring is around the corner!We have a small nucleus of breeding animals here at Salt of the Earth. We raise shorthorn cattle, a heritage breed from the north of England that has gone on to spawn 30+ breeds, and herefords. They respond well to grass feeding and marginal pastures, are excellent mothers and all-around easy keepers.

The Fine Print
We sell our quarters as “split quarters” ie: not a front or back quarter, but half of a side evenly distributed in two.
We will help you through the process of choosing your cutting requests. However, feel free to relay them to the butcher directly, especially if you have very specific requests. Also note that some requests need to be relayed before animals leave the farm (e.g. sweet breads, cheeks, tongues).
If you’re going in on beef with friends/family, we communicate with a single “point person”, and also please understand that we do not break down or handle beef in volumes smaller than a quarter.
