Latest News On Beef Street!

   

Now is the time to reserve your side of beef from the November 2021 harvest. Email or call us with your questions, or to get your name on a side of Gourmet Grassfed Galloway beef!

We also have premium ground beef, T-bones, thick cut ribeyes, stew meat and roasts on hand now. Good idea to stock up while we have it! Email or call us to place your order.

Price Check: Find yourself wondering why our prices are significantly lower than other grassfed beef producers in the eastern part of Kansas? You can thank the Galloway breed for that. Their non-selective, environmentally friendly grazing habits reduce our costs, and we pass the savings on to you. We want our beef to remain accessible to a broad range of our Kansas and Missouri neighbors! The hard working Galloway breed is genetically programmed for efficiency and exquisite beef, and allows us to produce beef that is economically and environmentally sustainable. Come join us...you'll be glad you did!

Kansas City customers take note! We now offer periodic deliveries to the Johnson County area (pick up in the vicinity of Oak Park Mall). Be sure and get on our email mailing list, and we will notify about pending visits to your fair city. Great opportunity to snag a nice selection of cuts. Sorry, but we are unable to deliver sides.

Buying Packaged Cuts of
Renaissance Farms Beef

Individual Cuts

We do make individual cuts available for those wanting to sample our beef before committing to a side...a very reasonable desire! The price list on this page reflects our retail pricing for samples. Your cost, when purchasing by the side, will be much less.

Renaissance Farms beef is processed by Olpe Locker, a state inspected facility located just 10 miles South of Emporia, KS. Cuts are meticulously wrapped in white butcher paper lined with plastic wrap. We are registered with the State of Kansas Division of Meat and Poultry Inspections. Please note: Our retail beef is currently sold in Kansas only!! And yes, we are extremely sorry for those out of state to whom we cannot ship. But if you're ever passing through, give us a call!

Buying Grassfed Galloway Beef
by the Side

Frequently we are asked via email about the pricing structure of our beef when purchased by the side.

Here's an example:
Let's assume a side with a hanging weight of 300 pounds. At the hanging weight price of $3.65 per pound, the above side will be $1095.00.(plus retail sales tax). This is the amount payable directly to Renaissance Farms Ltd.

Olpe Locker is currently charging 80 cents per pound hanging weight, plus $20/side slaughter fee. In our example, this comes to $260.00. Adding up the charges for the side of beef and the processing fees, this side of beef comes up to $1355.00.

The 300 pound side of beef will yield somewhere around 200 pounds of packaged beef, depending on the animal and also on how you have it cut. Dividing 200 pounds into the total dollar amount of $1355.00 yields a per-packaged pound price of $6.78. We are also required to collect sales tax on sides because we are selling to the end consumer. Lyon county sales tax is currently 7.5%.

Since the hanging weight for sides varies with each animal, the total dollar amount you spend little more or a little less than these figures, and we'll be happy to try and accomodate your size requests.

Where do I pick up my side of beef?

Sides of Renaissance Farms beef may be picked up from Olpe Locker anytime during their regular business hours: 8 to 5 Mon – Friday. Call them regarding Saturday hours. Olpe Locker phone: (620) 475-3375. You will pay the processing charges directly to Olpe Locker when you take delivery of your beef. Cash or check only please!

Dry Aging

Yet another benefit of buying beef direct from producers! Small local processing plants still afford you the opportunity to let your beef age naturally in a finely monitored climate controlled cooler. As the sides hang, the physical force of gravity gently relaxes the muscle fibers while the cold temperatures permit just the right environment for biochemical processes to further enhance tenderness and flavor.

According to Ask the Meatman www.askthemeatman.com, dry-aged steaks are offered today in the U.S. only in the finest of upscale restaurants, owing to the tremendous amount of time, facilities and special care needed to properly dry age beef. When you buy beef from us you will be getting: 1) Grassfed Beef. 2). Galloway Beef — recognized for centuries for its exquisite flavor and texture, and 3) Dry aging of your Grassfed Galloway Beef!
