How It Works

  • This price includes our standard cuts, packaging, and 21 day dry aging of our 100% grass fed / finished, antibiotic free, hormone free, steroid free, GMO free, and grain free beef.

  

Processing

  • Kiana Creek Ranch works with Innovative Foods located in Evans, CO, a USDA inspected custom meat processing facility.  A USDA inspector is on site daily to monitor all harvest and process procedures to ensure the animals are treated humanely and food safety protocols are followed.

 

  • Once the animal is processed the carcass will hang in a cooler and “dry age” for a standard of 21 days. Meat hanging improves the flavor allowing the natural enzymes in the meat to break down the tissues. Also at this time about 4% of the carcass weight is lost from water evaporating out of the meat which helps to concentrate the flavor. 

 

  • After the carcass has hung and “dry aged”, the butcher will break it down into  cuts and Vacuum Package the meat in clear 3 mil plastic bags.

    Pickup

    • We do not ship orders. Customers can pick up their order at Kiana Creek Ranch in Sedalia, CO. 

     

    Freezer Space

    • A general guide is 1 cubic foot of freezer space for 25-30 lbs. of packaged weight beef. Needed freezer space really varies with the choice of cuts and packaged weights.

     

    Custom Processing

    • If you would like to order beef from Kiana Creek Ranch, but want the processing customized, we will sell based on a hanging weight price of $5.50 per lb. The customer is then responsible for butcher fees. For more information please contact us at Info@KianaCreekRanch.com
