Buying Packaged Cuts of
Renaissance Farms Beef
Look over the Price Information on this page to see the types of cuts available for you to order. Call or email us to place an order and schedule a local delivery
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 ( www.olpelocker.com), a state inspected facility located just 10 miles South of Emporia, KS. Cuts are meticulously wrapped in white butcher paper lined with plastic wrap. It is frozen before it leaves the plant and is transported frozen. 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 275 pounds. At the hanging weight price of $3.00 per pound, the above side will be $825.00. This is the amount payable directly to Renaissance Farms Ltd.
Olpe Locker is currently charging 80 cents per pound hanging weight, which includes slaughter and most 'extras', such as stew meat, kebobs, tenderizing, etc. In our example, this comes to $220.00. Adding up the charges for the side of beef and the processing fees, this side of beef comes up to $1045.00.
The 275 pound side of beef will yield somewhere around 175 pounds of packaged beef, depending on the animal and also on how you have it cut. Dividing 175 pounds into the total dollar amount of $$1045.00 yields a per-packaged pound price of $5.97. We are also required to collect sales tax on sides because we are selling to the end consumer. Lyon county sales tax is currently 7.15%.
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 let you know what to expect when you order a side.
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.
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!
