Purchasing beef

Quarters, half and whole animals will be available in September 2019. Let us know if you’re interested and we can add you to the waiting list!

Beef is available for purchase by the quarter, half and whole animal. The beef is locally processed in an inspected facility. As a customer of the meat locker you have the option of how you would like to receive the final products.

They’ll customize your order such as:

  • how many steaks

  • tenderized round steaks

  • soup bones

  • size of beef roast

  • how much hamburger

  • hamburger packaged in 1 lb, 1.5 lb, 2 lbs, etc.

How much meat do you get from a whole animal?

On average, a 1,000 lb finished animal will hang after being butchered at around 610 lbs. and yield 430 pounds of retail cuts and ground beef.

How much does MN grass-fed beef cost?

You can expect to pay a certain percentage above what retail beef is in the store. But, because you are buying the animal (and not individual packages), on the whole the price of your beef will be less expensive. A quarter of grass-fed beef in Minnesota is well below the national average.
