Who butchers your meat?

Our beef is harvested humanely on the ranch and then processed at Cullen Custom Meats in Sunnyside, Washington.

What is the difference between "hanging" vs. "packaged" weight?

• Hanging weight is the weight of the beef before processing.
• Packaged weight is the weight after processing and packaging.

Our meat is sold by the hanging weight—the weight of the meat as it hangs at the butcher shop after slaughter and before cutting. As the beef is aged for up to 14 days, the weight will decrease from some dehydration. When the cuts are made, there will also be some weight loss due to removal of bone, excess fat and gristle. The meat you take home will be 55-75% of the original hanging weight. The resulting packages from the carcass are then equally divided into groups of 2, 4, or 8 giving you purchasing packages of eighths, quarters, or half. That is to say, none of the premium cuts are removed from the portions. Your beef will arrive frozen, labeled, and double wrapped in freezer/butcher paper with a shelf life up to two years in the freezer..

What cuts of beef are in the Traditional Package?

The following is an example of what cuts to expect with a quarter of beef. Your quarter includes cuts from both hind and front of the animal for a variety of beef.  Note that these are approximate quantities that vary by each animal.  The example is based on a 700 pound hanging weight.
