We wait for our animals to mature before being sent to market, as this helps develop a deep “beefy” flavor.  Your Angus beef is also Dry Aged 10 -21 days to promote further tenderness and a deep, rich flavor.

 Your beef will be USDA inspected then Custom Butchered, Dry Aged, Vacuum packaged, Labeled,  Boxed and Frozen awaiting your pick up here in East Smithfield, PA.

Live WeightThis is the weight of an animal while it is “on the hoof” or living.
Hanging Weight This is the weight of an animal as it hangs on the rail at the meat locker after hide, head and hooves, etc. have been removed. Depending on the breed and animal, hanging weight is commonly around 60% of live weight for beef.
Final Weight* Also called “Cut”,”Take-Home” or “Finished” weight, this is the weight of the actual meat that you will receive after excess fat and bone are removed. Depending on the breed and animal, final weight is commonly around 60%-70% of hanging weight.

A typical half share will yield between 250-300 pounds of beef and will require 10-12 cubic feet of freezer space.
