Our beef is lower in fat and calories than grain-fed beef, and contains three- to four-times the Omega-3s. As a bonus, it is one of the richest known sources of “conjugated linoleic acid” (CLA), and vitamin E. Reality Farm’s beef is strictly pasture fed and finished on fields free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers and supplemented only with mineral salt. It is totally free of antibiotics and hormones.

Interested in seeing the types of cuts available?

Our Angus beef tastes more natural and is more appealing than grain-fed. It is available in a variety of cuts, including steaks, roasts, short ribs, ground beef and stew meat, and other cuts as requested. Delivery is available free anywhere in the Metropolitan DC area for orders of 50 pounds or more, or lesser orders can “piggy-back” free of charge with milk deliveries at our normal drop sites.

Individual beef cuts are not standardized due to differences in each animal’s slaughter weight. The listed price is a “per pound price.” When ordering, please specify how many pounds of a particular cut you want. We will select and ship packages that weigh as close as possible to the requested amount. Invoicing will follow via separate correspondence with the actual total price. Payments may be made online or by check via postal service.

Bulk sales of ¼, ½ or whole beef carcass are available with advance notice because animal(s) must be sent to slaughter, aged and cut to your specifications.  Typical “turn-around” time is 2 –3 weeks.  Please refer to Product Listing for pricing.

Our animals vary in size from 800 to 1200 pounds live weight at slaughter.  As a “rule of thumb,” a carcass will dress out at ⅔ of the live weight.  When processed into individual cuts, approximately ⅔ of the hanging weight remains for delivery.  The delivery weight depends on how much of the carcass the customer keeps.  For instance, if all the carcass is processed into ground beef, the end weight will be much less than the delivery weight of a carcass where boned-in cuts, soup bones and organs are retained.  For typical orders, a whole animal usually dresses out at approximately 350-400 pounds of packaged meat.
