Black and red Angus cattle

How much should you purchase?

Ask yourself:

How big is my family?

How big is my freezer?

How often do we eat beef?

What cuts would we enjoy?


Factors such as the beginning weight of the animal and the style of your preferred cuts all influence the final weight of the animal, so consider these approximate quantities:

Quarter: 100-150 pounds

Half: 200-250 pounds

Whole: 400-500 pounds

Halves and quarters are sold as "Representative Quarters/Halves;" this means that you will receive 1/2 or 1/4 of the total burger, roasts, steaks of the whole animal  Processing is done to your specifications so you only get the cuts you want and use.

So, just how much is "Half a Beef"

Our growing practices

Many people think that organic farming means "no chemicals" are ever used.  In fact, organic growers can and do use chemicals on their products; however, these chemicals typically are those found in nature (with the exception of copper).  Most organic farms are very small growers located in hot and dry areas where pests naturally are limited.  Growing organic produce here in Indiana simply is not feasible economically on a large scale.  Guenthenspberger Farms uses chemicals only when necessary, and we carefully follow all labeled precautions.  We use only those chemicals approved for the specific pest and crop.  We also take full advantage of integrated pest management technology to reduce the need for insecticides and fungicides.

Without chemicals, the food you take home would be of poor quality and there would be less to take home.  Most organic farms are very small growers located in hot and dry areas where pests are limited anyway.  Growing organic produce here in Indiana is simply not feasible.  Although we recommend that you wash your produce before eating it, the ordinary contaminants you might carry on your hands when you pick the produce (germs, dirt, yucky stuff from your steering wheel) are a greater concern the anything you might find on the fruit.
