How much freezer space will I need?

Approx 1 -1.5 cu. ft. of freezer space needed for 20 lbs of beef. More space is better to allow sorting and better airflow between packages.

Can I custom cut to my instructions or substitute different cuts?

Our bundles are personally divided equally and pre-packed with already chosen cuts. Therefore, we are unable to substitute cuts in our signature bundles. If you would like to choose your cuts, we suggest having a ½ beef custom cut with your instructions.

How long is the beef aged?

Our beef is "hung" or aged for a minimum of 14 days, up to 18-21 days. Aging the beef in a chilled environment allows natural processes to improve flavor and tenderness.

How old are your animals when they are processed?

We finish our cattle at 18-22 months of age, generally around 1,200 - 1,300 lbs. Per USDA rules any cattle over the age of 30 months must be boneless cuts.

How is it packaged?

All of our product is individually packaged and vacuum-sealed; ground beef is in 1 -1.5 lb packages; 1/3 lb. hamburger patties are usually 4 to pack. Our beef is USDA-inspected and processed at Bear Mountain Beef in Hawk Springs, WY. The USDA states frozen, well-sealed beef can last for a long time (we have personally stored beef for 2+ years), but recommends 12 months.

What kind of cattle are they?

Our cattle are high Angus influence, crossed with other prominent English breeds (Hereford, Charolais, Red Angus). Although genetics is an important factor in quality, the most influence of quality and taste comes from how they are raised and fed. We keep an eye and records on all of our cattle from calf to finished product, including the processing.

What do you feed the cattle?

For the last 120-130 days they are on a high forage diet of high protein consisting of spent brewers/distillers grain, alfalfa, hay or straw, corn silage, cracked corn, and minerals. Their diet is formulated by our feedlot nutritionist to ensure they are getting all the needed nutrients, vitamins and minerals for the best muscular development and overall health.

Where are they processed?

Our cattle are processed at Bear Mountain Beef in Hawk Springs, WY. We are partners in this business and are able to have a good relationship with the processors. Bear Mountain Beef is a USDA-Inspected facility and we are able to age the beef for 14+ days there.
