At Sunrise Farms, our pastured beef is grass-finished and naturally raised with no added hormones, preservatives, or genetically altered feed. Purchase the whole animal or split it with a friend or two and enjoy high-quality, healthy meat all year long. The average dressed weight of an entire cow is 550-600 lbs. The amount of table ready meat after the beef is cut, wrapped, and frozen is approximately 75% of the dressed weight. If a number of boneless cuts are ordered it can be 60%
USDA Certified Vs. Custom Processing
Sunrise Farms partners with local beef processors to provide our whole beef customers with USDA Certified and Custom (Non-USDA Certified) processing options. What’s the difference? Our Custom Processor doesn’t get inspected by the USDA. They’re our neighbors and a local provider we’ve trusted for the better part of the last century because their facilities are clean, well-kept and they follow the industry standards and best practices for animal processing. We send them the exact same beef as our USDA Certified processors. What does that mean for you? Electing to use our Non-USDA Certified processor gives you a less expensive way to purchase locally-processed whole beef!
