Like all fresh, real food Morris Grassfed Beef is a seasonal product. Orders for Morris Grassfed Beef are taken year round until our beef supply runs out. We harvest our animals on a seasonal basis, when the grass is still green and the animals have "finished," usually May through July and again in the fall.
Our portions start with a split-half which ranges between 80-90 lbs. For more details on what's included in a split-half, click here. We primarily sell our beef directly to the consumer. You can also order a half (approx 170 lbs) or whole (approx 360 lbs) portion. Special cutting instructions for the butcher are possible for halves and wholes. Many of our customers purchase portions and split them with other family or friends.
We also sell organ meats, bones, and extra ground beef until our supplies run out. You can add these to your order during the order process.
Getting Your Beef
We have two pickup options, Traditional and CSA-Style. All beef is delivered frozen and in labeled packages with the cut and weight. Our beef freezes very well and can be preserved safely for a year or more in a freezer.
Our 'Traditional' deliveries give you all of your beef at one time, along with any extras that you might order. We have a number of drop-off locations throughout the Central Valley, Bay Area, Central Coast and Southern California. Click here for details: Drop off locations 2013.pdf. As you place your order, you pick the date and time that fits best with your schedule.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. You purchase the same split-half (or larger), but we store the portion and deliver it to you over the course of the year. The 'CSA-Style' is ideal for people who would like to eat Morris Grassfed Beef but do not have the freezer capacity to store it. CSA orders are paid for with an intiail deposit of $200 (credited to your final amount due), subsequent payments of $200 on your first and second deliveries, with the balance due on the final delivery. We weigh each box and record the weights throughout the year to calculate the amount due at the end of the year, usually under $100. Pick-up dates are listed on our Order Form.
Because of the complicated logistics it takes to have the meat cut, wrapped & delivered, we require customers to send in a $200 non-refundable deposit to ensure you will pick up the order. If your circumstances change and you are unable to pick up the order, we may be able to re-schedule a delivery on our next delivery day but will need to charge a $25 storage fee.
How to Order
We start accepting orders for the upcoming year in late January. Orders are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Depending on demand, we may still have portions available throughout the year, but we recommend that you place your order early to ensure you can select your preferred pickup location and time.
When you place an order a non-refundable deposit of $200 (payable by check or PayPal) is required to confirm and reserve your order. The final price is based on the final weight of the cut and is due upon delivery.
If you would like to place an order, please fill out the order form and return it to us - or get added to our newsletter list to stay informed on our supply.
Refunds & Exchanges
We understand that situations change, people move, and sometimes customers have to cancel an order. On the rare occasion a customer is unhappy with the way the beef is cut or wrapped, we will do our best to replace/ exchange it (cut by a different butcher) in a timely manner, however, we do not do door-to-door deliveries and will ask that you return the beef to us in San Juan Bautista for an exchange or refund.
