Buying Our Beef
Buying Beef from Burleson Farms
Beef is usually sold in eighths, quarters or half sides. Beef weight is determined by hanging weight after harvest. Weight will vary because each animal is unique.
An eighth side of beef weighs approximately 65 pounds, a quarter side weighs approximately 125 pounds, and a half side weighs approximately 250 pounds.
Two adults typically eat a quarter side of beef per year. Our beef is packaged, vacuum sealed, weighed and labeled according to the type of cut. Each steak is individually wrapped and the ground beef is packaged in one pound packages. The label lists the name of the certified USDA plant that processed the beef.
Our goal is to provide quality beef at a reasonable price by eliminating the middle man and selling directly to the consumer.
