We are pleased to raise completely grass-finished happy cows on our farm. Our Black Angus and Hereford cattle begin life on Sisler Farm, a nearby diversified conventional farm. Since we purchase them each spring as yearlings, they do not qualify as full organic beef. However, we have made sure that no antibiotics or growth hormones are ever a part of their diet. They are raised on mother's milk and conventional pasture during their first summer of life. During their winter on Sisler Farm, they are fed conventional hay and sillage. Once the cattle arrive on our farm, they eat only organic pasture and organic mineral salt. Throughout the year, we rotate them to prime pasture on a schedule that is conducive to great health for the animal, as well as the pasture. To find out more about how our animals are raised, check out our page on rotational grazing.
Round Right Farm offers a few ways to purchase beef. If you are interested in purchasing certain select cuts from time to time, you can find us at the Oakland Farmer's Market year round with a diverse selection of cuts, or you can also call Sunshine at 858-805-1787 to arrange pickup on our farm. Our farm share members are welcome to purchase cuts of beef throughout the year through our online ordering system, and these will be delivered alongside their veggies. If you are interested in stocking your freezer for the year, you can purchase a Beef Share or a Half Beef. All our beef is butchered locally at an inspected butcher shop, and is delivered frozen and vacuum sealed in packages labeled with the cut and weight. Free delivery to most points in the Oakland and Morgantown area is included or you can pick up at the farm. If you have any questions please give us a call (304-789-2227) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Beef Shares include cuts from both the front and hind quarters and are put together to offer a nice variety of cuts. They will contain a diverse mixture of Steaks, Roasts, Ground Beef and some miscellaneous items in roughly the same proportions as found in beef cattle. Many of our customers have expressed more interest in ground beef and steaks than roasts, and we have our cattle butchered accordingly. This means our shares contain about 55% ground beef, 15% Loin and Rib steaks, 10% other steaks (mostly round steak and sirloin tip steak, but also flank, skirt and hanger steaks) 14% roasts, and 6% miscellaneous items like soup bones, organs or ox-tail. By default, larger packages will contain a larger variety of steaks and roasts and have more variety of miscellaneous items. Each cut will be frozen, vacuum sealed and labeled with the weight. Our shares include a list of each cut you receive so you can track what gets used through the year.
A Small Share will fit in a standard freezer and still leave room for other things. A Medium Share may fill a standard freezer completely.
$3.45/lb hanging weight + Butchering fee ($0.85/lb hanging weight + $40/half for standard butchering).
For example: A typical half beef will have 245 lbs hanging weight, so the cost with standard butchering would be $1093.50.
When you purchase a Half Beef, you have a wide range of choices in how you'd like it butchered. It is a great way to get an education in the various cuts of beef that are available to your kitchen and can be the start of some great culinary adventures as you learn the recipes specifically tailored to each cut. Check out our processing form to view all your options.
Half a beef is typically between 140 lbs and 180 1bs of finished product, which is more than will fit in a regular kitchen freezer. It is great to split between two, three, or four families. If split four ways, the amount of meat will fit in a standard freezer and still leave space for other things. If split two ways, the amount of meat can fill a standard freezer. If you have a dedicated deep freeze, half a beef can last one family a whole year. If you plan to split a half with some friends, we encourage you to check out the processing form so you can discuss how you would like your half to be cut up.
