How it Works

Like all fresh, seasonal foods Lazy C Beef is also a seasonal product.  We take orders all year long until our supplies run out.  We sell two different products here at Lazy C Beef, our grass finished beef along with our grain finished beef.  All our cattle are grass feed with some finished on grass while others go on to be finished on grain for the greater marbling that the grain gives the meat.  We sell our beef both ways due to the different likes of our customers.  We slaughter our cattle on a seasonal basis,  with the grass finished cattle being processed from October thru December and our grain finished cattle from January to mid-March.

What is Included

Our beef is sold by the carcass hanging weight (the weight after slaughter as it hangs at the butcher shop and before cutting).  In comparing with other companies for pricing, please remember that not all meat is sold this way.  Some may sell on the live weight (when animal is still alive) and some sell on the packaged price (the weight when it is delivered), although most meat is sold based on the hanging weight as we do.  All weights will vary from one animal to another and that is why we only take a deposit for the meat.  After processing we will know what the true weight is and be able to make the final sale amount.  Many of our customers will order a whole or half portion, and split it with family or friends, to save money because it is a better value to purchase it that way.  We sell all our beef directly to the consumer for greater savings to you.

Natural Grass Fed and Grass Finished

Our packages start with a split half which ranges between 120-140lbs.  You can also order a half package (245-265lbs.) or a whole package (490-510lbs).  Special cutting instructions are available when purchasing whole or halves only.  Internal organs (heart, liver etc. or tongue and bones) can be ordered also during checkout as extras.

Natural Grass Fed and Grain Finished

Our packages start with a split half which ranges between 150-170lbs.  You can also order a half package (310-330lbs.) or a whole package (640-660lbs).  Special cutting instructions are available when purchasing whole or halves only.   Internal organs (heart, liver etc. or tongue and bones) can be ordered also during check out as extras.

Butchering and Packaging

Beef on butcher paper We use a local butcher that is a USDA inspected facility and has been in business for many years and does a very good job at what they do.  They try very hard to deliver to the customer every pound of the meat that is purchased.  They do a great job of trimming what is necessary and giving the customer the greatest amount of meat that is possible, without adding any additives or fillers.  As a customer you get 100% Lazy C Beef.  All meat is double wrapped in plastic and then in lined butcher paper.

Getting Your Meat

Our meat is delivered frozen in butcher freezer wrapping, with the cut labeled on each package.  Our meat stores very well in the freezer, and can be preserved for a year or more.

Our deliveries are made at one time with your total order (with any extras).  We will deliver it directly to your home or a chosen location within 20 miles.  All other orders will be delivered to a pre-determined location.  After your order is placed we will arrange a pick-up location, date and time that best suits your schedule.  When time comes to pick up your product, if you cannot meet the agreed pick-up arrangement, we may be able to accommodate a change, but there may be an additional delivery fee.  Please try to contact us at least 24 hours in advance.

Because of the complicated logistics of slaughter, packaging and delivery of our meat, we ask for a $100 non-refundable deposit to insure that you will pick up your order on the date and time that you have chosen.

How to Order

We start accepting orders in late January when we have determined our pricing for the contract year. All orders are filled on a first come, first served basis.  We recommend that you place your order early to insure that you get the package, delivery date and time that you prefer.

When you place an order the non-refundable deposit  (payable by check or online) is required to confirm and reserve your order.  The final price is determined by the final weight of the cut and is due upon delivery (money order, cash or online).   If you would like to place an order please fill out our online order form.

Refunds and exchanges

We understand that sometimes there are circumstances beyond our control or your control, and sometimes customers have to cancel an order.  We would ask that you please contact us in a timely manner if there needs be a change made and we will try our best to accommodate the situation.  We also expect the same from you, if we have an unavoidable  problem arise with your order.

On a rare occasion if a customer is unhappy  with the way the product is cut or wrapped we will do our best as to replace/exchange it in a timely manner.  We do ask that you return the meat to us at our headquarters in Centerfield for the exchange or refund.  Meat is a natural product and between us at Lazy C Beef and our butcher, we try very hard to deliver a great product.  However, sometimes unforeseen things arise – we promise to do our very best to ensure your satisfaction in these situations.  We aim to please you, the customer, and want to have you be one of our many return customers.  We believe that the customer is first and foremost in our business.
