About our finished beef
Breed? Limousin Cattle are originally from France, they are known for their lean yet very flavorful and tender meat. We have chosen Limousin as our primary beef breed for their ability to convert feed into red meat, and their delicious flavor. We wouldn’t raise what we wouldn’t eat ourselves. We respect and love our herd and take the utmost care and pride in what we do. Herd health is our priority to raise a finished consistent product every time. Check out our reviews, we have many repeat customers and are thankful we are able to continue to farm locally here in Stanwood.
What do they eat? All of our beef are finished on free choice locally grown corn silage and grain two times a day, and rich high nutrient alfalfa from Eastern Washington that is available 24/7. They are on this regime for approximately 150 days prior to harvest. We raise them all the same, so the meat is consistent in taste and tenderness. No hormones or antibiotics are a part of our program. Animals are typically 17-18 months old at time of harvest.
Cost? We currently sell Locker beef that is processed at Silvana Meats, our fee is a reasonable $3.99/lb hanging weight (this includes cut/wrap/all processing fees).
Size of Order? Most people start with a quarter beef. It typically weighs 220-250 lbs. We have a custom cut and wrap sheet to make all your selections of the different cuts of the quarter. You will get approximately 40-50lbs of ground beef with a variety of cuts ranging from Rib steaks, chuck steaks or roasts, arm roast, short ribs or maui ribs, london broil, stir fry, flank steak, sirloin tip, stew meat, brisket etc…. Most people order a quarter beef which will yield about 5-6 cubic feet of beef to take home. We’ve had some customers take 1-2 whole beef and split it up among their family. Our beef will typically grade “Choice”. Certainly you can order more than a quarter!!
Aging process? The beef is dry aged a minimum of two weeks and sometimes longer. This ensures a tender product.
Quality Control? We can assure the meat you pick up is our beef and the beef you ordered due to the conscientious staff at Silvana Meats.
We take pride in providing an excellent product for you and your family. Thank you for considering us for your beef needs.
