Happy New Year!
Wow, we had such an exciting 2021 serving our beef community, meeting new friends, and learning even more along the way. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue offering beef to our customers and community each month in 2022, as well!
We have a growing interest in our quarter, half and whole beef orders, so we’re taking a moment to explain the process and hopefully answer any questions you might have. As always, please email us should you have any questions we do not address…we love hearing from you!
To place a quarter, half or whole beef order, a deposit is required. Please find the $500 whole, half, quarter beef deposit option in our shop (this link will take you directly there). Once you’ve completed your deposit through our website, you will receive either an email or phone call from us to confirm the size you’d like for your side of beef, along with a pick up or delivery date. Typically our quarter, half and whole beef sides are available at the same time as the general beef box order pick up date announced each month, but if a new date is needed we will communicate that and accommodate you.
The $500 deposit will be applied towards the final cost. The following list is the cost and the weight of each beef side option:
Quarter Beef: $925 final cost. Quarter Beef will include 100-120 pounds of beef.
Half Beef: $1,800 final cost, $50 savings. Half Beef will include 200-235 pounds of beef. *Custom cut orders are offered for half beef orders.
Whole Beef: $3,500 final cost, $100 savings. Whole beef will include 400-450 pounds of beef. *Custom cut orders are offered for whole beef orders.
Beef will divided into quarters equally with the following cuts:
Top Round Steak
Bottom Round Roast
Eye Round Steak
A full stand up freezer or floor freezer will comfortably fit a quarter beef.
*For half and whole beef orders, we offer custom cuts (steak/roasts/ground beef) the customer can choose rather than what is typically ordered for Kerr Family’s quarter orders (listed above). If the customer chooses custom cuts, the beef cut sheet will be emailed to the customer to select which type of cuts will be included in their half/whole beef order. We will also make ourselves available to go through the cut sheet selection process along with the customer if they desire.
Choosing a quarter, half or whole beef order is the most economical choice if you are a beef loving family that has the freezer space to store the beef. We also see many customers split the quarter, half or whole beef between family, friends or neighbors. Each family and situation is different when ordering beef in this manner, that is why we are happy to assist and guide our customers through the process if requested.
For many this is your first time ordering beef this way, and we understand it might sound confusing or intimidating. Please be assured that we are here to help and answer questions you might have.
From our family to yours, thank you for choosing Kerr Family Farms for your beef.
The Kerr Family
