4 Steps to Purchasing Whole & Half Beef
1. Contact us! Feel free to shoot us an email or Facebook message, give us a call, send a carrier pigeon, or put up some smoke signals- whatever works for you! We will, first, answer any questions you have! We’ll also provide you with a cut sheet where we can chat about your options for cuts, curing, seasoning, time frames, what you’ll need, what’s cooked best on a grill versus a smoker versus a crockpot, etc!

2. Fill out your cut sheet and turn it into us along with the $500 deposit* required for whole and half beef.
3. The folks at Fauquier’s Finest will do what they do best, then we will promptly contact you to notify you of the hanging weight and the amount due. At this time, 2.75$ per pound of hanging weight is due.
Our cows generally have a hanging weight of 350-375 per half, 700-750 per whole.
4. Then! After a two weeks of dry aging, we will call you when your beef is ready. You’ll grab some coolers and a few helping hands and head down to Bealeton where you will pay Fauquier’s Finest a butcher fee, directly. This fee is approximately 350$ for a half cow, 700$ for a whole cow and is determined by the butcher. Once you are settled up, you load up your meat and enjoy feeding quality, delicious, all-natural beef to your family!
For example: You want to order a half cow. Your cut sheet is ready and you turn it in to us with the 500$ deposit. Shortly after, we call to tell you that your half cow is ready to be made into delicious steaks and ground beef and it’s hanging weight is 350 pounds. We charge 2.75$ per pound of hanging weight, which puts the cost of the cow to 962.50$. You subtract 500$ (your deposit) which puts the remaining balance at 462.50$. This remaining balance is due prior to you picking up your meat. A few weeks later, we call to let you know your beef is ready for you! You head on down to Fauquier’s Finest and pay the butcher’s fee to Fauquier’s Finest directly, which is generally 350$ for a half cow. For this example, the grand total for your half cow is 1,312.50$
*500$ deposit is non-refundable.
