We buy year-old beefers in the spring and pasture them at Potter Hill until they are harvested in the fall. Though they may have recieved some grain in addition to pasture and hay in their first year, they eat only grass at Potter Hill. Our beef is harvested in season, as the fall pastures are producing a new bounty of lush grass. The resulting meat is flavorful and well marbled. To get the best flavor, Potter Hill beef is dry-aged for up to three full weeks before butchering.
We sell our beef in bulk through our Beef CSA program. We also have individual frozen cuts for sale from time to time. Please check The Market to see what is currently available.
A beef share will likely include the following cuts, though there may be some variation: Porterhouse Steak, T-Bone Steak, NY Sirloin Steak, Rib-eye Steak, London Broil Steak, Flank Steak, Eye-Round Roast, Chuck Roast, Bottom Round Roast, Brisket, Short Ribs, Stew Meat, Ground Beef, Bones.
Beef shares are equivalent to a quarter cow, and are sold by the hanging weight. The hanging weight of an animal is the weight of the carcass minus the head, hide, and organs. We estimate that the hanging weight of a share will be approximately 150 – 175 lbs, and the actual packaged weight will be about 70% of the hanging weight. For example, your share might have a hanging weight of 150 lbs. You would receive about 100 lbs of meat to put in your freezer. We require a non-refundable $600 deposit when you reserve your share.
Beef Shares are of limited availability for 2015, and we are taking deposits now. Please check out shortcreeknh.com for more info and to download an order form.
