You are buying a Whole or a half beef from a commercial Red Angus that is to be

harvested. Pricing is based on its hanging weight. It will be Certified Grassfed and

raised here at theRanch by us, without Antibiotics or added Growth Hormones. The

Red Angus will be delivered to the processor by us. We use Bluebonnet Meat Co. in

Trenton Tx. a State inspected facility. We will contact you a few days before we take

the Red Angus to be processed and again after delivery with the final price due us

less your deposit. Contact Bluebonnet and let them know your preferred Cut. The 

Beef will be dry aged 14 days to enhance flavor and tenderness before you pick-up 

your beef direct from Bluebonnet and pay your processing fees to them. A pick-up 

here at the Ranch can also be arranged.

                       Ground Beef Only

At times we process an older market animal for Ground Beef only. 

We think these older animals have a stronger beef flavor and make 

some of the best tasting ground beef. Most steak and better cuts 

are also used to make this great 100% Grassfed Ground Beef.  It 

is priced at $7.35/lb. and is sold in Bulk Boxes of 25/1/lb. Vacuum 

packages, 1 box = $183.75
