How to Begin

The process will begin when we receive your completed form and $50 deposit.

Processing

We use Del Fox Meats in Stanwood, a small family-owned packer, to process meat.  Del Fox is State inspected and hand-processes all cutting and packing.

Options

A variety of processing options are available through Del Fox Meats such as converting portions of your beef to sausages, jerky and pepperoni.  You may also choose the thickness of your cut as well as quantities of fat and bone.  Del Fox will contact you regarding individual processing preferences, or ask us for help.

Pick-up

Your beef is to be picked up at Del Fox Meats (7229 300th Street Northwest; Stanwood, WA 98292). If you live on Whidbey Island you have the added option of picking up your beef at Long Family Farm on Whidbey Island (3468 Ewing Road; Clinton, WA 98236).

Payment

Payment is due in full when you pick up your order. Because each animal is a unique weight, we will not know your exact price until butchering. Live weight is approximated from hanging weight.

Timing

Once you put a down payment on the animal we will contact you with a delivery date.  We may have to wait for the cattle to grow.

Packaging

The beef is frozen and packaged and labeled according to cut.

Storage

Meat in vacuum-packed parcels will last at least two years in a freezer.  40 pounds of beef will fit in a typical refrigerator freezer with some room to spare.
