From Our Farm to Your Table

Highly sought after by world renowned chefs such as Gordon Ramsey, Irish Dexter beef is a culinary experience you will not soon forget. Dexter meat is robust, rich, beefy, tender, juicy, and incredibly delicious. In blind taste tests, Dexter beef consistently rank in the top three, above Angus. It is not your average feedlot variety of meat you get from the grocery store!

 

From Our Farm to Your Table

Growing a Dexter beef is akin to creating a fine wine. For two years, a Dexter is allowed to grow to the optimum size. Those destined for the table live a peaceful, pampered and care free existence on our farm with plenty of sunshine and fresh air. During the warm months, they roam lush green pastures with year around access to natural streams of water that run through the farm. During the winter months, they are supplemented with vital minerals to keep them healthy and fed high quality hay from the very fields they roam. Quakie Lane Dexters are grass fed and lightly grain finished to add the perfect amount of fat for tenderness and marbling. They are highly efficient foragers, grazing on a variety of vegetation such as rosehips, willows, clover and native grasses. All of which add wholesome flavor to their already delicious meat. No hormones, No steroids, No antibiotics. Period. We offer wholesome, delicious beef –  From Our Farm to Your Table.

 

What to Expect

We sell whole and half beef direct to the consumer. Our beef is processed at a local state inspected facility where they follow our strict standards for processing. The beef is dry-aged for a minimum of 14 days to develop depth of flavor and tenderness. Once aged, it is cut and packaged in airtight vacuum sealed packages.

 

How Much Will it Cost?

The average Dexter steer weighs 700 lbs. at 24 months of age. This is the age they are typically processed. Hanging weight for a steer weighing 700 lbs. is approximately 420 lbs. We sell grass fed and lightly grain finished Dexter beef by the half and whole for $5.00 per lb. of hanging weight. THIS INCLUDES THE COST OF PROCESSING. Hanging weight is the weight of the beef once it is put in the cooler to age and is typically 60% of the live weight of the animal prior to processing. The processed/packaged weight of the animal averages 60% of the hanging weight after removing bones and waste. However, it is not uncommon for a Dexter beef to yield almost 70% since there is less bone waste due to their shorter stature.

 

The following prices are based on a 700 lb. steer and subject to change based on the actual hanging weight of the animal at the time of processing.

 

HALF BEEF

At $5.00 per lb. of hanging weight, a half a beef

will yield approximately 125 lbs. of delicious beef                                $1,050.00*

for your freezer. *INCLUDES THE COST OF PROCESSING.

 

 

WHOLE BEEF

At $5.00 per lb. of hanging weight, a whole beef

will yield approximately 252 lbs. of delicious beef                                $2,100.00*

to fill your freezer. *INCLUDES THE COST OF PROCESSING.

 

Meat is processed at a state inspected facility. We cannot ship out of state at this time.
