3 Attadale Farm True Local Grass-Fed Beef
For You Who Want The Very Best, Whether You Deserve It Or Not!
We're 80 Years Behind And Dragging our Heels
What we are offering our special customers is 80 years behind the times. It is the strangest of circumstances. We are falling further behind, yet we are way ahead of the curve. We don't even begin to measure up, yet the numbers are on our side.
In this day and age we are considered country bumpkins, hicks, backards, riff raff, dufusses, hillbillys, country folk, trouble makers, Okies, drop outs, uneducated, out of step, flim flam, flunkies, old fashion and you put your favorite description next. And we say, Ain't it Great!
We work hard, very hard, to not get sucked in to today's beef and pork production mistakes. We are not on the cutting edge by any stretch of the imagination. We are working overtime to be at least 80 years behind today's cutting edge technologies when it comes to beef and pork production. And we are absolutely elated to be way back here. We know all to well, and most likely you do too, that as a very good, popular book reveals, "Those that Live By the Cutting Edge, Will Die by the Cutting Edge." Contemporary beef and pork cutting edge technologies are cutting it short for many.
We make deliveries to the Kirksville, Columbia, Quincy, Kansas City, St. Louis and Western Illinois areas.
"Aged Gracefully To Perfection"
Quality grass-fed beef is like a fine vintage wine (however we have not considered bottling our beef). It requires time. Great quality grass-fed beef consistently requires time, humanely treated well bred cattle (sale barn "bargains" will not work) and a correct diet of strictly premium grasses in well maintained pastures, to raise cattle that provide consistant pleasurable dining experiences, desirable nutritional profiles and beef that is not drug induced. You can not manipulate time, treatment and quality regardless of how clever you are and no matter what you force upon the cow. Cleverness and force are not what Attadale Farm is all about. We are about value! And value consistently requires time, humanely treated quality cattle and a 100% grass-fed diet. (Where have I heard that before?)
At Attadale Farm we offer our grass-fed beef two different ways. One way is by the 1/4, 1/2, and whole carcass. By offering our grass-fed beef to you this way you will be purchasing your beef at the lowest cost per pound. Our price is based on the HANGING WEIGHT, not the live weight or the packaged weight. Live weight is much too far from the part of the cow that you will be eating and not accurate enough to be used. Also, if they get fed and watered real good before weighing, that always ticks the price up some. Packaged weight is impossible to determine until after you have made your specific cut selections and the cow has been totally cut and packaged and then the product weighed in the packaging. This route gives you the "big surprise" at the end of the process. Hanging weight, or dressed weight, is the weight of the cow hanging in halves in the cold box just before it is cut according to your selections. Hanging weight is roughly 60% of the live weight. Each cow has a different weight, but if a live cow weighs 1000 lbs and dresses at 60%, the whole hanging weight would be about 600 lbs., the 1/2 would be 300 lbs and the 1/4 would be 150 lbs. These are approximate numbers. Your beef hanging weight probably will be a little different. And because you may want your steaks or cuts boneless, or do not want soup or dog bones, or don't want ribs, the actual wrapped weight of your beef will be less than the hanging weight.
"We Have No Problem With Competitors Selling For Less"
They Know What Their Stuff Is Worth!!
The best price per pound is for the WHOLE. It currently is $5.00/ lb* **. So, for instance, even if you and 3 other friends go together and each get a 1/4, you've just bought a whole.
Next is the 1/2 priced at $5.25/ lb.* **
The split 1/4 sells for $5.50/lb.* ** Split means selections from the front and back of the cow.

GRASS-FED BEEF SOUP STOCK BONES---A BIG HIT AT ATTADALE FARM!
We are happy to relay to you the fact that Grass-Fed Beef Bones, sometimes referred to as Soup Bones, are finally becoming the hit that they always should have been. Mountain Men of the 1800's drew their greatest nutrition from the bones of the animals they consumed. The secret is in the marrow. Don't fall for the misguided belief that all cow and/or chicken bones will do. Grain fed bones of cows and chickens are only fit for fertilizer. They have been nutritionally ruined by their grain fed diet and medicinal stimulants. If you wish to get the benefit of the marrow in your soup stock, stick with grass-fed soup bones. The flavor is rich and the benefits are numerous. Give us a call or shoot us an e-mail if you wish to receive more information about Attadale Farm 100% Grass-Fed Soup or Beef Bones. You may never waste your money and health on Campbells Soup again.
Investing in your Attadale Farm Grass-Fed Beef is easy. We ask for a deposit of $200 per half or 1/4. The balance is due when you receive your order.
