Quarters, Halves and Whole cows:
If you are ever going to order a quarter, fall is the time of year to do it. A quarter is usually about 100 pounds of meat. The breakdown will be approximately: * 50% ground beef * 10% stew meat. * 15% Steaks (TBone, Ribeye, Sirloin) * 20-30% Roasts. Chuck, Arm, Sirloin Tip, Rump. Most are labeled simply Beef Roast. * There will usually be about 10-15 pounds of free things like liver, heart, tongue, oxtail, marrow and joint bones. * It will arrive all cut, wrapped and frozen. * Wrapping is vacuum packed and with ground beef in 1 pound chubs. * Price is $7.29 per pound. The total is usually between $700 and $750. You can say if you want a quarter that is on the small side or on the large side. You can also say if you want more ground beef and less roasts or more roasts and less ground beef if you want. If you want less steaks, you can get a price break on the whole quarter. In other words, I am willing to dicker a bit.
If for any reason you are not satisfied with my product or service, let me know. I will make it right. Someone didn't like the ground beef, it didn't taste like what they were used to. No worries, grassfed doesn't taste like most other beef. I replaced it with Roast which they liked. Now they order the ground beef all the time. Someone got some tough steaks, I replaced them with ribeyes. I misplaced someone's order. The next time I was in their town I delivered to their door and gave them an extra 4 pounds of ground beef. I will always strive to do better than is expected.
Email now: Steve@VDLGrassFed.com with orders and let us know what you want. Steve will reply with an estimate or help finalize the order. You can also text or call: 715-415-4675. The main thing is to get the conversation started.
Ordering with comments gives us something to go on while packing the orders. We might not be able to do it exactly the way you want (you can ask for tenderloins or a HUGE Pork Roast but might not get them) but we will be able to get closer than if we were going it blind.
We take orders via email and send back a preliminary estimate. The estimate is so that you can see if we got the order right and so we can keep track of inventory. If you don’t get an estimate back when you order, something is wrong. Ask about it.
A day or so before delivery we pack the orders, get the exact weights and send out the final invoices with a payment link. If you don't get your final invoice by the Friday morning before delivery, ask about it.
We like the online payment link best because it takes zero time at delivery, the customer doesn't have to be present at delivery and the book keeping is all automatic. That being said, we also take checks, credit cards, cash and PayPal.
If you have a big order (over $400.00) you can get an extra 2% off if you pay with a check.
People meet us (or the coordinator) at the drop spot and orders are passed out. If we are already gone by the time you get there, coordinators like it best if you pay online. Most coordinators don't mind watching your meat until you can get there. Just don't make it an all day thing! You can also get someone to pick up for you if you want, just pay online or give them a blank check and trust them.
Email me at Steve@VDLGrassFed.com with orders or questions. Let me know what you want.
We like farm visits. That being said, it is quite a hike to get here. We are about 2.5 hours from Mpls/St Paul and about 7 hours from Chicago. However, if you come out to the farm, you can get meat for a dollar less per pound than if we deliver.
Anyone you refer to us for meat earns you an extra pound of beef for their first order. The reward is usually ground beef. If you look at it as a commission, it is about 8%. It is not totally free because you are doing the work to get the referral. You will have to let us know who your referrals are or we will think it is just Steve's magnetic personality!
If you want to earn referral pounds for EVERY delivery,
you are a coordinator.
Coordinators help get orders, receive the meat at the gym, make an effort to get it to the right person and help chase up payment if needed. It is some work but earns a commission paid in meat. The coordinator lets us know which cuts s/he wants as commission. The commisssion amount can also come off the order total.
I send out an email 2-3 weeks before a delivery. I don't get out a lot of spam. It is generally a very short email, something like: “I am coming to town on blah date. Do you want some meat?” If I don’t hear back, I might send out another one a bit closer to delivery time.
I also send out the final invoice with an email that includes times and locations of delivery along with the exact invoice. The invoice/delivery email occurs a day or so before delivery.
If you have any other questions, like:
What cuts are the steaks?
What cuts are the roasts?
How lean is the hamburger?
How exactly does the coordinator deal work?
Etc etc etc. Do NOT hesitate to let us know. We type pretty fast and like to answer questions. It also teaches us what people want to know in a general way.
Hope to hear from you soon!
PS. Prices are constantly under review and may need to go up due to rising input costs. Prices do go down once in a while but they go up much more often than down.
