Obtain Top Quality Beef, Pork, Lamb, Goat and Poultry

Meat shortages across the country caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have led more consumers to buying local. Having a variety of meat cuts on hand whenever you want them is a great convenience. Many people will go in on a larger quantity of meat with family and friends to lower and spread the cost. You are also investing in the future of 4-H youth.

We use a local processor 'Mathews Custom Meat Processing" located in Belen.

  • Average processing rate = $1.50/lb

Approximate weights the buyer receives:

  • Steer average 745 lb. carcass
  • Hog average 166 lb. carcass
  • Lamb average 64 lb. carcass
