Purchasing Mountain Pastured Beef from West Wind Farm

West Wind Farm's Mountain Pastured Beef is sold direct to the consumer. Our focus is on selling our beef by the half or quarter beef (also known as a split half since both fore quarter and hind quarter cuts are included). In summer our beef may be ordered in bulk for delivery in late October. For those with small families or small freezers, mixed-cut "sampler packets" and hamburger-only packets may be ordered as long as supplies last. In either case, delivery is made in the Washington, D.C. - Maryland suburban area. West Virginia residents may call to make special arrangements. Sorry, no shipping.

For bulk orders (whole, half, or split half animals), prices are based on the dressed—or hanging—weight, according to accepted practice by small family-owned farms that sell custom-processed beef.  (Average weight for a split half beef is 110 pounds.) The actual weight of meat received is 25-37% less than the dressed weight, depending on shrinkage during aging, and on your choice of bone-in or boneless cuts. Cost per pound of bulk orders after processing averages $4.00 - $5.50. Orders of half or whole beefs may be cut to individual specifications.  Click here or see below for ordering details about bulk orders.

USDA-inspected mixed-cut sampler packets weigh 10-12 lbs., include steaks, hamburger, and stew meat, and cost $65.00 (average $6.00/lb.). Hamburger-only packets weigh 2 lbs., contain 8 quarter-pound patties, and cost $10.00. Click here or see below for ordering details about packets.
