Our 30 pound beef sampler box is our best seller. In a sampler box you receive a variety of cuts including steaks, roasts, stewing beef and ground beef. The sampler box is approximately 1/12 of an animal. This is a great option as you are able to buy a small amount while trying a portion of the entire animal.
A 30 lb sampler box of beef includes:
- 12-14 lbs ground beef
- 2 lbs stewing beef
- 8-10 steaks (including T bone, ribeye, and sirloin)
- 2 beef roasts
- 1 lb shank
Price for the 30lb beef box is $330.00.
We also have our beef available for purchase by the 1/2 or whole animal. When purchasing a half or whole it can seem a little confusing if you have never done it before, but I will try my best to answer your questions. When we take the animal to the slaughter house it is cleaned and hung for about 14 days to ensure tenderness. The animal is then weighed, we call this weight the "rail weight" and this is the only accurate weight that we have of the animal. We then sell the animal based on this weight. When buying a quarter or half, your meat will be custom cut to suit your needs. While cutting, the butcher will be discarding some bone and fat so you will be receiving less weight than the paid rail weight. You can plan on losing about 25-35% of your weight due to discarded bone and fat.
Our animals range from 480-650 pounds rail weight, which is 240-325 pounds for a half and 120-160 pounds for a quarter.Our current rate is $6.30 per pound rail weight for quarters, and the halves are $6.10 per pound rail weight.
We sell our lamb by the half or whole animal and it comes to you custom cut, packaged and fully frozen. The meat received from a half lamb is approximately 17 - 25 pounds. Our price per pound (meat received) for a half or whole lamb is $14.00.
When placing a lamb order we will be asking you for the cutting instructions. Some of the available cuts are leg roasts or chops, lamb rib, lamb loin chops or rack of lamb, shoulder roast or chops and ground lamb.Our lamb is only available in the late fall but we accept orders year round.
Prices range depending your desired size of chicken. 3-5lb chickens = $6.25/lb, 5-8lb chickens = $5.75/lb. We have found that our cost of production per pound is greater for a smaller chicken than a larger chicken.We have our chickens available for pickup or delivery from mid summer till late fall and into the winter as long as our supply lasts. Feel free to contact us for information on availability and harvest dates.
Our turkeys are sold per pound as a whole bird and come to you packaged and fully frozen. The approximate weight of a bird is 10-17 pounds. We will try to honour any size requests when it is possible for us to do so. The cost per pound is $6.00.The turkeys will be available for pickup or delivery in mid-September. Feel free to contact for information on availability.
All of our pork comes packaged, fully frozen and ready for your freezer. Our pork is processed in a government inspected facility. The butcher guarantees that the meat you receive is only Riverside Acres pasture pork and has not been mixed with other meat.
Our 30 pound sampler box is the most popular pork option. In a pork sampler box you receive a variety of cuts including hams, bacon, pork chops, sausage, ribs and pork roast.

The weight of one half is approximately 90-130 pounds rail weight. The cost for a half or whole pig is $5.30 per pound (rail weight) which includes cutting and wrapping.

We have recently been experimenting with rendering the fat from our lamb, pork, and beef. If you are interested in rendering your own tallow (beef and lamb) and lard (pork) we are able to sell you the fat to do so, if we have it available at the time. If you are interested in this product, please contact us for availability and pricing.
