We have an appointment at the butcher for March 29th, 2017 for one of our all grass-fed steers, #56. This is a great looking steer that was born and raised here on the farm. He has never needed any kind of antibiotics, growth hormones or anything unnatural, on pasture his entire life. We also don't give vaccines. We have a closed herd and have never had any problems with any diseases. We do fly spray them in the summer and de-worm the cows yearly.
If anyone is interested in a whole or half let us know. We charge $2.75/pound on the hanging weight. This is a good price for grass-fed beef! The butcher charges .50/pound for processing but that is covered in the $2.75/pound. I try not to sell 1/4's only because it is difficult to divide a 1/2 a cow between 2 people and have all the cuts come out even. I will do it if you know the person and you can negotiate with them on your cuts.
We try to be good stewards of our land and only use chemical herbicides on our fields to spot spray for "illegal weeds" when absolutely necessary. Our cows are fed no growth stimulants nor antibiotics, this is hard to do. Even certain types of mineral supplements are chock full of different antibiotics and broad spectrum medications. You have to be extremely diligent on your research into these matters.
Grass fed beef is more flavorful with a lower fat content. To cook grass fed beef you do have to make a few minor adjustments- you never want to grill your steaks well done. Either cook your beef hot and fast or low and slow, grass fed beef is not as forgiving as grocery store beef but is well worth it in the end.
