PLEASE READ: Important Ordering Information:

  1. All deposits are non-refundable. This is a DEPOSIT to hold your meat. It is NOT your order total. Your deposit does go toward the final price.
  2. When you place your deposit you will receive an order confirmation by email (please use a current email address). Approximately one to two weeks before the pick-up dates we will email the balance due and further details.
  3. Pick-up times are during our store hours on the dates specified above (hours are Thursdays 2-5:30pm and Saturdays 9am-12pm). If your meat is not picked up by Saturday, we charge a $20 fee per day to store it for you.
  4. With the exception of January, we butcher on a monthly basis.

Our Corriente cattle enjoy the ability to roam and graze on fresh, green pasture with a supplement of our homegrown alfalfa hay in the winter months. Our cows are grass fed from start to finish. They are treated humanely and receive no antibiotics or hormones. Why do we raise Corriente beef? Because we believe they taste the best. The meat is tender, lean and full of flavor. Corriente cattle are the "old-fashioned beef". A few of the benefits of purchasing beef from a Corriente cow include:

  • They have not been genetically bred for growth. The cattle are smaller than the commercial beef cows we are used to - when you purchase beef from us you don't need to buy a big freezer. 
  • They are very lean animals which means very lean meat. There is little fat and the beef is healthier for you. Our ground beef is naturally about 97% lean - no fat needs to be removed from it.
  • You can always have fresh beef in your freezer. The smaller cows mean you will actually eat all of your beef before it goes bad or has freezer burn. You can order a half or a whole cow every six months or so and have delicious, fresh beef to eat throughout the year.

  • Tenderloin Steak
  • Rib Steak
  • Sirloin Steak
  • T-bone Steak
  • Cube Steak
  • Ground Beef
  • Shoulder Roast
  • Rump Roast
  • Pot Roast
  • Soup Bones
  • Stew Meat

Packaging will include:

  • One inch thick steaks with two steaks per package
  • One pound of ground beef per package
  • One three to five pound roast per package

About 40% of the order will be ground beef, 35% steaks & 25% roasts

(For Half & Whole orders ONLY: If you would like any of the following included - liver, heart, kidneys, tongue, oxtail, marrow bones - please specify with your order or send us an e-mail.)

CUSTOM PROCESSING:

(Please note the difference between these two. Premium is based on the PACKAGED weight. Custom is based on the HANGING weight - the weight of the steer before it is cut. Custom is MORE expensive per pound.)

Custom processing, available for half & whole orders, allows you to request certain cuts of meat or specify if you would like different packaging. Other items can be changed, such as:

  • Thickness of your steaks
  • Weight per package of ground beef
  • Weight of your roasts
  • Number of steaks included per package
  • If cuts are made into more roasts or more steaks

Custom orders are based on the hanging weight of the cattle, which is the weight of the meat before packaging. Pricing is different than premium processing because of this reason.

If you select custom processing an e-mail will be sent requesting specifications to the address used when the order was placed.
