Devon Point Farm is committed to providing delicious, all natural, antibiotic-free and hormone-free grassfed beef. The cattle are raised on pasture while the grass is green using rotational grazing and sustainable farming practices. They have access to fresh clean water, trace minerals, and are fed round-baled hay during the winter months – they are never fed grain. Cattle are grown and finished on grass and hay only – no grain, no antibiotics and no hormones.
When compared to grain-fed beef, grassfed beef has less total fat, less saturated fat, less cholesterol, and less calories. It also has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and a number of health-promoting fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and “conjugated linoleic acid” (CLA) than grain-fed beef.
The beef is humanely slaughtered and butchered under USDA supervision, dry-aged for ten days to two weeks, clear plastic shrink wrapped, labeled with the cut and weight, and frozen.
Pricing: Boxed, By the Half, and Whole Animals
By The Box: Boxed beef typically features a ‘sampler’ mix of cuts which may include roasts, steaks, burger, shanks, stew meat, short ribs, fajita steaks, etc. Boxed beef is $400 for a 35 lb. box. Boxes are reserved with a $250 deposit.
By The Half: The beef Halves are at special bulk pricing of $5/pound hanging weight and are pre-sold with an $800 deposit. The final balance due will be determined after the steers have been taken to the butchers and we will call you with a balance due based upon the hanging weight. Our hanging weights for a HALF are 300-350 lbs. The yield varies depending on how fat the animal is and how it is butchered, but is typically half of the hanging weight, so 150-175 lbs of finished cuts which usually take up about 10 cu. ft. of "upright" freezer space. Halves typically cost between $1,500 and $1,750 depending on the weight of the animal and yield between 150 - 175 lbs. of finished cuts.
Note: All pricing includes transportation costs, USDA butchering, plastic wrapping, labeling and boxing.
