When you buy your grass-fed, grass-finished bulk beef from Groff’s Content Farm, you are helping create the most sustainable beef buying system there is! You completely cut out the middleman, saving on grocery store grass finished beef prices and your deposit allows us to implement field management plans that incorporate truly regenerative grazing practices.
The added convenience of free shipping (using 100% recyclable materials), means you get the savings and security of a full freezer of our farm-raised meats delivered to your door.
Our Herd and Farm
Our primary and favorite breed is the Red Devon. We also run Angus stockers brought in as weaned calves and have some Shorthorn and Murray Gray cows in the mix. All are raised on grass from start to finish and supplemented with local apples, alfalfa hay, and sprouted seed fodder we grow right on the farm (think tasty wheatgrass!). We especially love the Devon’s due to their temperment, suitability to a grass diet. Calves are born or brought onto our 100-acre, Frederick County regenerative farm and grazed and finished on our sustainable, chemical-free pastures. In the winter we supplement our rotational grazing strategies with local hay and sprouted seed fodder.

PICK DELIVERY TYPE
Choose to pick up at one of our many farmer’s markets in the DC area or have it shipped to your home. We will notify you and keep you updated every step of the way!
THEY KEEP GRAZING
We keep raising your animal on the lush pastures of our Frederick Co. farm, keeping you involved with updates on what stage of the process your order is in :-)
Once our craft butcher has your portion packed and frozen, you'll get an invoice for the balance due and we'll schedule your pickup or delivery!
A lot of bulk beef ranches get pretty complicated when explaining how they price their bulk beef.
WE MAKE IT SIMPLE - you pay for the finished weight of your portion of the beef and at the price of 13.50/lb for ¼ and ⅛ boxes, and 13.00/lb for ½ and whole beef orders. We do it that way because after two decades of raising, processing, and selling our grass-finished beef direct to customers at DC-area farmer’s markets, we’ve kinda got this pricing and packaging thing down.
So, we sweat the details like hanging weight, yield ratios, and processing fees - but only charge you a per/lb cost for what ends up in your freezer.
If you want to learn about the details of our pricing - please, please, please give us a call - we’ll connect you with Bob who loves to talk dates, weights, ratios, and yields! You can also click here to go to our FAQs on Bulk Beef
Ordering Your Bulk Beef
Bulk beef ordering is only open a few times each year. So, if it's not open today contact us and we’ll fill you in our next ordering window. It’s typically three months between when the ordering happens and when your order is boxed and ready for shipping. You secure your beef share with a 50% non-refundable deposit, which will be deducted from your final balance.
After your initial 50% deposit is in, we’ll keep you informed about your animal’s schedule and contact you when we have an expected shipping date for your meats. Once we have the final weight of your box/share, you’ll be charged the balance due and we’ll contact you to arrange for the shipping date. If you’re local to the DC area, you have the option of picking up your meats at one of our weekly farmers markets around DC, otherwise, your boxes will be shipped frozen to your door.
