non-gmo feed

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 60-75% of the carcass weight depending on the number of boneless cuts ordered.

USDA Certified Vs. Custom Processing

Sunrise Farms partners with local meat processors to provide our whole beef customers with USDA Certified and Custom (Non-USDA Certified) processing options. What’s the difference? USDA processing facilities must come under federal regulations for animal slaughter. This means a federal or state inspector must be on site whenever animals are being slaughtered. While custom processors must undergo routine state inspections, they may avoid the additional cost of continual inspection. If you are more comfortable with a USDA inspected facility or if you purchase our whole animals for resale, you should buy our USDA processed animals. You get to choose the cuts to your specifications. If you are buying for personal use, we can sell you the animal, and you work directly with the processor to determine cuts and schedule pickup from their facility. We recommend local custom processors we know and trust and who have great reputations in our community. Custom processing generally saves you 10-15% in total cost. 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!

Considerations

  • The amount of table-ready meat after the beef is cut, wrapped, and frozen is approximately 75% (450 lbs.) of dressed weight and as little as 60% (360 lbs.) if a number of boneless cuts are ordered.
  • The actual amount of table-ready meat varies according to the type of cuts that you choose.
  • The number of a particular cut will vary according to the types of cuts you choose. For example, you will get less ground beef if you order more roasts.
