We offer grass-fed, grass-finished beef with no hormones, antibiotics, or other drugs, born and raised on our own bermuda-gone-native East Texas grasses. Only our best Black Angus steers & heifers will be available in summer 2019, just in time for grilling season!
Pay half the listed price to reserve your beef, and pay the remainder when you receive your order. Shipping beef is quite expensive, so call to discuss options if you are unable to pick up your large order at the butcher, or small orders at Windy Oaks.
We have a dream: that all cattle may enjoy fresh dew on grass as the first rays of sunshine stretch across the meadow. We believe happy, healthy animals make the best tasting, highest quality meat, which comes from a lifetime of letting cows be cows. Sunshine, fresh pasture, and consistent movement all contribute to the strong, active immune systems of our animals.
Our grass-fed, grass-finished Angus beef are raised with humane, organic practices from birth to harvest, on our own Bermuda-gone-native pastures, off Highway 47, between Canton & Mabank. Our land is never treated with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or synthetic fertilizers, and our cattle never receive hormones, grain, or antibiotics. In other words, we use nature as our guide in managing our animals.
Our grass-fed, grass-finished 2-year-old steers and heifers are finished by weight and conformation with off-farm alfalfa hay and our own toxin-free pastures. Our steers usually finish at a live weight of 1,200+ pounds and a hanging weight of 650+ pounds. The final hanging weights are taken by the butcher at harvest. Although we no longer pay for certification, we continue to comply with the HUMANE standards of The Global Animal Partnership (globalanimalpartnership.org) and GRASSFED standards of The American Grassfed Association (americangrassfed.org).
Your beef order can be cut to your specifications or come as all ground beef. Payment is half upon order, remainder upon pick-up. We will have beef available in November for $3000/Whole, $1500/Half, and $750/Quarter upon reservation.
