I'm looking to order 1/4 to 1/2 a cow alternately a good per lb rate for specific cuts would love If the farm vacuum sealed my steaks not interested in much ground beef

most I can find seem to run about as much at regular retail plus shipping

Ack!

So where do you buy in bulk to save?

Somehow I missed your comment...better late than never! I ordered from Meadow Haven Organic--> http://www.meadowhavenfarm.com/ I met them at the Green City Market and really liked their philosophy. Picked up my 1/4 a couple weeks ago and everything has been delicious so far! Now I'm just waiting for my half hog from them.

I'm in the Chicago area too - would you mind letting me know which farm you ordered from?

It's $4 a pound, but keep in mind that's the 'hanging weight' of the beef. not necessarily what you'll end up getting.

Calling farms is the best way to go. The cheapest farms won't be spending $$$ on websites. I bought a lamb for $5/lb...it was a steal!

We found a local farmer through word of mouth and only ended up paying $3.15/lb for the entire cow. I think the craigslist idea was great. Also, there might be local organizations for very small producers that can point you to someone willing to sell to you at a reduced rate.

Good luck!

I recently purchased a 1/4 cow from a local Chicagoland farm, and it's costing 3.15/lb hanging weight. This should come out to between 5-6 dollars a pound. But of course this includes your higher priced cuts like Fillets and Roasts, as well as 40-50 lbs of ground beef. Since the higher priced cuts usually cost you between 10-20/lb for grass-fed, I definitely feel like it's the only way to go if you can afford the up front costs.

I'm in NC and I've been quoted "probably" around $6 -$6.50/lb for a whole cow split 3 ways. Don't think that covers the slaughter/butcher fees though.

Where are you? Close to source helps I think.
