The price for a single beef share is $210.00. The share includes 8 distributions of our frozen certified organic grass-fed beef. The share will start in July after the animals have grazed for 3 months on tender spring grass. The 8 distributions will be every other week from July until October.
The beef share will include 2-3 items per distribution including, steaks, ground beef, sausage, short ribs, soup bones, roasts and/or braising cuts(great for stews!!!) Some examples of weekly shares might be…1 lb. ground beef and 1 steak…… or 1 lb. sausage, 1 short rib and a braising cut.
The beef share is quite different from buying your favorite cuts and only eating what you are familiar with. We offer a variety of different cuts of beef and plenty of tried and true favorites. True to the CSA ideal, you will be receiving cuts that are a true “share” of our animals. An example of this is the Flank steak. There are only 2 Flank Steaks per animal…our herd is small and we can only expect to have 12 flank steaks for the entire season in contrast we can expect 800 lbs. of ground meat. We are able to make hot dogs, three different sausages, patties as well as ground beef out of those 800 lbs.
Because of your financial commitment to us pre-season (which allows us to avoid borrowing money) the share price represents a 10 -15% discount from our retail pricing on this beef. We keep track of each member’s share cuts, their weights and pricing.
If you have any questions about the share, please do not hesitate to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
