FAQ When Buying Direct from the Producer
Q: Why is the pricing on homegrown beef complicated? I just want a set price per pound on my homegrown beef.
A: Homegrown, finished animals vary in size and weight. The pounds of boxed beef you bring home from a 1,350 pound steer will be different than from a 1,200 pound steer. We don’t want to overcharge you for a smaller finished steer, but we also have to cover our costs on finishing a larger steer–he definitely eats more.
When you pay by the hanging weight, the price is directly tied to the pounds of beef you take home. Above is a graphic of a side of beef at its hanging weight. It’s a very fair pricing system for both consumer and producer.
