HOVEN FARMS ORGANIC GRASS FINISHED BEEF
Guess what? This is what we do. We grow organic grass finished beef.
Our farm has been in the family since 1910 and we have had cattle walking on our pastures and eating our grass. Hoven’s have been stewards of our land and our grass for over 100 years. This is our passion!
And we want to share our passion with you.
We believe that grass finished beef is an amazing food and an amazing tool that is the only solution for solving climate change and desertification. We have had scientists and filmmakers on our land looking and exploring what we do.
We love grass and we love grass finished beef.
Check out Tim’s Blog where he talks about lots of these issues.
What Can You Do to get your hands on Hoven beef get some in your freezer!
Hoven Farm sells a whole beef, half beef and a 40lb case of ground beef.
What is a whole beef? A whole beef is all the meat in a cow, cut, wrapped, froze and delivered to Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. How much meat ends up in your freezer depends on the how big the carcass was. You will end up with about 65% of the carcass weight as meat in your freezer. If you want bones with your order, you will receive more weight! On a usual carcass weight, you will receive about 350-450 lb of beef in your freezer.
A half beef is one side of a whole beef. You get half as much beef as in a whole beef – about 175 – 225 lbs of meat in total.
A 40 lb case of Ground Beef contains 500 gram packs of ground beef (1.1 to 1.2 lbs) in one nice box. There are 40 lbs in total of ground beef in the case even though there are less than 40 packs.
