Prices, How It Works

VDL GrassFed is a small Grassfed Beef Farm in Northern Wisconsin. We do deliveries to customers through neighborhood coordinators and buying clubs in your area every two months. If you want to find out where your closest coordinator is, email me with your address.

Our beef gets no grain, antibiotics or hormones. Pork is raised outside. Chicken is raised on Non GMO Feeds and Grass. All animals are humanely raised. Photos, videos and more info about the farm and what we do can be seen on Facebook

Quarters, Halves and Whole cows:

A quarter of beef is usually about 100 pounds of meat.

The breakdown will be approximately:
* 50% ground beef
* 10% stew meat.
* 15% Steaks (TBone, Ribeye, Sirloin)
* 20-30% Roasts. Chuck, Arm, Sirloin Tip, Rump. Most are labeled simply Beef Roast.
* $7.19 / lb. Total is usually between 720.00 and 780.00.
* There will also be about 10-15 pounds of free things like liver, heart, tongue, oxtail, marrow and joint bones.
* It will arrive all cut, wrapped and frozen.
* Wrapping is vacuum packed and with ground beef in 1 pound chubs.

You can say if you want a quarter that is on the small side or on the large side. You can also say if you want more ground beef and less roasts or more roasts and less ground beef if you want. If you want less steaks, you can get a price break on the whole quarter. In other words, I am willing to dicker a bit.

Pork Halves:

A half pig is usually about 70 lbs of meat.

The breakdown will be approximately:
* Pork Chops: 15 lbs.
* Pork Roast: 12 lbs.
* Ham: 7 lbs.
* Ground pork (no spices): 5 lbs.
* Bacon: 8 lbs.
* Bacon, Jackpine: 5 lbs.
* Spareribs: 3 lbs.
* Brats: 8 lbs.
* Pork Sausage: 10 lbs.
* There is a 15% discount off the bundle total.
* You can make some changes in the breakdown of your half pig. Some changes are easy, some are impossible. If you ask for a half pig that is all bacon you are going to be disappointed...
* Half pigs are also subject to availability. Sometimes I don't have enough pork to make it happen.

Neighborhood coordinator:

Neighborhood Coordinators get a 5% commission based on the value of meat dropped off at their drop spot. Several coordinators pay for most of their family meats by being a coordinator. The commission amount can be taken off the coordinators order or it can be paid in meat. Coordinators also get a $7.00 commission paid in meat for every new person who orders for the first time. Click here on Coordinator or Email me to find out what the coordinator does and how you can become one.


I will always strive to do better than is expected. If for any reason you are not satisfied with my product or service, let me know. I will make it right. Someone didn't like the ground beef, it didn't taste like what they were used to. No worries. Grassfed doesn't taste like most other beef. I replaced it with Roast which they liked. Now they order the ground beef all the time. Someone got some tough steaks, I replaced them with ribeyes. I misplaced someone's order. The next time I was in their town I delivered to their door and gave them an extra 4 pounds of ground beef. I will always strive to do better than is expected.

Email now: Steve@VDLGrassFed.com with orders and let me know what you want. I will reply with an estimate or help finalize the order. You can also text or call: 715-415-4675. The main thing is to get the conversation started.

Some notes:

Ordering with comments gives us something to go on while packing the orders. We might not be able to do it exactly the way you want but we will be able to get closer than if we were going it blind.

I take orders via email and send back a preliminary estimate. The estimate is so that you can see if I got the order right and so I can keep track of inventory. If you don’t get an estimate back when you order, something is wrong. Ask about it.

A day or so before delivery we pack the orders, get the exact weights and send out the final invoices with a payment link. If you don't get your final invoice by the Friday morning before delivery, ask about it.

I like the online payment link best because it takes zero time at delivery, the customer doesn't have to be present at delivery and the book keeping is all automatic. That being said, we also take checks, credit cards, cash and PayPal.

If you have a big order (over $400.00) you can get an extra 2% off if you pay with a check.

If you have an even bigger order (over $500.00) I can drop off at your house if you want.

People meet me (or the coordinator) at the drop spot and orders are passed out. If I am already gone by the time you get there, coordinators like it best if you pay online.

Most coordinators don't mind watching your meat until you can get there. Just don't be late without coordinating with the coordinator first! You can also get someone to pick up for you if you want, just pay online.

Email me at Steve@VDLGrassFed.com with orders or questions. Let me know what you want.

Farm Visits:

We like farm visits. That being said, it is quite a hike to get here. We are about 2.5 hours from Mpls/St Paul and about 7 hours from Chicago. However, if you come out to the farm, you can get meat for a dollar less per pound than if we deliver.


Anyone you refer to us for meat earns you $7.00 bucks off your next order. Someone will have to let me know who the referrals are or we will think it is just my magnetic personality!

Questions Welcome:

If you have any other questions, like:
What cuts are the steaks?
What cuts are the roasts?
How lean is the ground beef?
How exactly does the coordinator deal work?
Etc etc etc.
Do NOT hesitate to let me know. I type pretty fast and like to answer questions. It also teaches me what people want to know in a general way.

Hope to hear from you soon!


PS. Prices are constantly under review and may need to go up due to rising input costs. Prices do go down once in a while but they go up much more often than down.

PPS. If you spot a typo or other error in the above and let me know about it you will get a free pound of ground beef with your next order! I am not perfect and will accept your help. You may have to remind me of this promise though...
