Customers tell us that John's Farm grass-finished beef has more flavor and is more tender than other grass fed beef they have tried. This difference can be attributed to the quality of grass and grazing the calf longer, allowing its energy to build fat into its meat because marbling adds to flavor and tenderness.
Yes, John's Farm Beef is available by the half beef bundle.
We have a recommended cutting order for the Half Beef Bundle. The Half Beef Bundle contains: filets, strip steaks, rib-eye steaks, brisket, chuck roasts, arm roasts, chicken fry steaks, fajita meat, round roasts, stew meat, flank steak, skirt steak, rump roast, pikes peak roast, short ribs, sirloin steaks, tri-tip roast, ground beef, and ground beef patties. Liver, heart, tongue, and ox-tail available on request.
John's Farm Half Beef Bundle is sold by processed weight, which means you pay for the beef that is going into your freezer. In comparison, other producers sell by live or hanging weight. We believe our customers should only pay for the amount of beef they receive instead of the unusable weight that is included in hanging or live weight.
The processed weight for a Half Beef Bundle is between 230-250 lbs. at $8.00/lb. You will know the exact weight after the beef is processed and packaged. If you wish to purchase the ox-tail, liver, tongue, and/or heart with your Bundle you may do so at $4.50/lb.
At this time we are looking at June, July and August processing.

• Healthy fat is essential for healthy bodies; one way to obtain healthy fat is through meat consumption. Be sure to ask questions and request facts instead of industry standards.
*Do the research; use Google on national brands. Look for where the beef comes from, what is fed to beef, at what size are beef processed, is the beef well marbled. For example, if a calf is processed at 1,000 lbs, or less, the meat will be very lean with little marbling which means the taste and tenderness will vary from John's Farm Beef.
*Look closely at the label and the claims made by the brand or producer. What inspections, certification, and verifications are on the package. For example, a farm with the name 'organic' is a title only; an official organic seal is required for the product to be certified organic.
*Listen to what producers tell you. For example, what does we raise organically mean or what does beyond organic mean? There are no inspections for such claims and very often the producer fails to have organic standards available to measure all his practices to determine if the product is being organically raised. We believe that to go beyond organic one must first be certified organic after which we can exceed the standards. For example, our cows are more than the required pasture space for certifications.
