Phelps  Farm


Treat yourself to Quality Beef Direct from Our Farm


Phelps Farm offers live beef and can arrange custom beef that is ready for your freezer.

Plan ahead and purchase a supply that will last you through the season.

One approach, used by a number of our customers, is to order a whole beef and they make arrangements to split it as many ways as they like amoung family or friends.

Likewise, you can purchase a "Side of Beef" and share it amoung family and/or friends.

A "Side of Beef" is the smallest portion we offer.

The "hanging weight" of a side of beef can vary from about 260 to 360 lbs.

Try to place your order several months before you need your beef. Often, but not always, there is a considerable waiting time from when place your order until you can pick it up.

The individual cuts of beef are custom trimmed to your directions, vacuum packed, labeled, and frozen. To plan your freezer space, the beef is usually packed in three boxes, totaling about 5-6 cu. ft.

The weight of the boxed beef, depending on how you ordered it to be trimmed & processed, will be about 60-70% of the hanging weight.

The above percentage varies, based on a number of factors including:

• Bone-in vs. boneless – This will dramatically affect yield; the more boneless cuts that are made, the lower the yield. It will not however significantly affect the actual amount of meat you receive.

• The amount of fat remaining on the meat cuts – The yield will vary based on how much surface fat the cutter leaves on the cuts.

• In addition to that boxed beef, there are a number of addition items you may request (like liver, soup bones, suet, & more) if you so desire.
