A Whole Cow typically yields between 320 and 400 pounds of retail meat. A Grass fed Whole Beef will typically require about 16-17 cubic feet of freezer space. A deposit of 400 dollars is required to reserve your Grass fed Whole Beef for the next harvest date.
Price per packaged pound, not hanging weight. At Pettit Pastures, all of our Grass fed beef is sold by the price per pound of the packaged meat. If you pay for ten pounds of beef, you get ten pounds of packaged beef. There are no extra butcher charges or hanging weights to try and figure out. We feel this is the simplest and most straight forward pricing method for the consumer. A whole beef typically yields between 320 and 410 pounds of packaged beef, so the cost of a whole beef would be between $2483.20 and $3181.60 total. No other fees.
