For Half or Whole Share custom order of Beef or Pork: (NOTE: The buyer is responsible for processing fees and cutting instructions)
- Animals are sold based on the hanging weight (after slaughter). Thus, the actual weight (your cost) will not be known until then.
- We require a deposit to confirm your order that equals about 50% of the “expected” total cost. We also encourage you to pay additional deposits each month toward your balance.
- Example based on Half Beef: 300 pounds at $3.50 = $1,050 - $500 deposit = $550 expected final cost. However, if the hanging weight was only 275 pounds, the total cost would be $962.504)
- Once the animal is delivered and we have the Hanging Weight, you will receive an email with the total weight, total cost, amount paid, balance due, and unique tag number for your order as well as the pickup instructions.
- NOTE: You will be responsible for paying the processing fee to the Processor.
