To reserve any beef, pork, or lamb, review the selections on the cut-sheets and share your choices with us. When purchasing a half beef, you will receive a custom cut sheet to fill out the cuts of meat you want, including the size of each cut so that the final product is ready for a family of any size. Whether you order protein for yourself, or for a crowd, the way the meat is cut and packaged for you will help you cook meals faster and easier.
Once your cut-sheet is submitted, mail a deposit to reserve your custom order.
Typical deposit amounts are:
Beef $400 deposit per side
Pork $100 deposit per side
Lamb $50 deposit
Legacy Farms raises herds free from added hormones, steroids and antibiotics. The cattle on the farm benefits from rotational grazing system, producing high quality forages.
Formula: Rail Weight x price per pound = Final cost to consumer
The average rail weight of a grass-fed Angus beef half is 250-300 lbs, X $4.25 per lb
The average rail weight of Top Shelf Angus Beef half is 350-400 lbs X $3.95 per lb.
The average rail weight of Five Star Kobe Beef is 350-400 lbs X $4.99 per lb.
This includes processing cost.
* Rail weights and prices vary, so contact us for current prices.
The final amount of beef you put into your freezer depends upon the meat cuts that you select for processing and the actual ‘rail weight’ of the beef. During the butchering process, the beef loses moisture, fat, and bones. Overall, about 55-65% of the rail weight will be delivered to the consumer.
Formula: Rail weight of 300 lb of beef half x 65% final consumable meat = approximately 195 pounds
Dry aging is the time period beef hangs vertically from a rail hook in a refrigerated cooler. Temperature and humidity are controlled to create the optimum environment for beef to be tenderized naturally. The entire process lasts about 10-14 days to achieve maximum aging and remarkable taste.
Final meat cuts will be delivered to you completely frozen, so your freezer does
not have to freeze all of the meat you receive, but it can keep it frozen. Each half
of beef fills approximately 7.5 cubic feet
of freezer space. With a side of pork you will need 2.5 - 3 cubic feet of freezer space.
We are blessed to have a multi-generation
farm, where pasture land is abundant. We rotate cattle
using a rotational grazing system, maximizing high quality
forages and food for the animals.
We offer proteins to fit any size family or individual needs. Our custom beef order form allows you to select the best beef cuts to suit your needs. Smaller cuts of meat work well for individuals or families, and larger cuts packaged in a larger weight work well for larger families. Select from the following options:
High Quality- We offer high quality grass-fed beef, pasture-finished beef, pasture pork, and pasture lamb finished on a forage diet of legumes and grasses. Fresh air, plenty of green pastures, and sunshine promote a healthy, stress-free lifestyle for our livestock, resulting in an unbeatable flavor and value for your family.
Clean Products- Our beef, pork and lamb are finished without
added hormones, antibiotics, or steroids. When you buy from
Legacy Farms, you can expect to get healthy, high-quality meats.
Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food- When you purchase meat from large chain stores, you may be uncertain as to the products
you are receiving. When you purchase local pasture raised
proteins from Legacy Farms, you are getting quality meats
that are raised on the farm.
Sustainable Farming Practices- We practice a sustainable approach to livestock management and land conservation. Our animals are rotated from one pasture to the next so they graze on clean, fresh grass. These practices provide quality forage stands that supply
a well-balanced, nutritional diet for our animals, resulting in a
healthy product with rich flavor.
Cost Savings- When you purchase beef, pork & lamb in bulk,
you are paying less money per pound than purchasing
individual cuts from the grocer.
Family Favorites- Ordering directly from the farm, you are able to specify cuts by customizing your meat choices to accommodate your family’s need. For beef you have many options that you can choose from: thickness of steaks, size of roast, more or less ground beef, and packaging options, etc. You may also choose favorite cuts of pork including brats, bacon, and steaks.
Time Saver- Save fuel, time and energy by having farm-direct meats readily available to you from your well-stocked freezer.

As working farmers, we aren’t always near the phone,
while we tend to herds and fencing, but we are happy
to respond to you as quickly as we can.
