BEEF HARVESTING AND PROCESSING

Our Process

As the first step in our custom beef processing, we age the beef for 14 days.   If you would like to have it aged longer, please call us for pricing: we offer a 21-day option.

Our typical days for beef harvest are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. We will need cutting instructions (how you want it prepared) within 7 days of harvest.
Need more information before you start? Please see our FAQ page.
