PRICING

Please note that our products are sold almost exclusively by pre-order via our e-mail list (contact  info@magdafarm.ca ). Orders are paid in full at the time of pick up - cash or cheques accepted, though for first-time customers we prefer cash. For large orders, especially when dealing with first-time customers, we may require a deposit. Please see the purchasing options page for more details. All our meat is sold fresh frozen - i.e. frozen immediately after butchering.

Notes: When purchasing quarters/sides you choose all your own cuts using a cutting sheet we provide (click here to view beef cutting sheet). The prices listed above include all butchering costs. A beef quarter is typically in the range of 125 to 150 lbs hanging weight and the yield from hanging weight to cut and wrapped weight is around 65%, but varies a bit depending on the cuts chosen. The quarters are actually a split side, with cuts from both the front and hind parts of the animal. Click here for more info. on the 100% grassfed vs. Magda Farm beef prices.

Most of our own Magda Farm beef comes available in the late fall. The 100% grassfed beef, purchased from a neighbour, is available at various times throughout the year. 

We often have additional ground beef, hamburger patties, stewing beef and bones available for sale - both from our own herd and a neighbour.

  • Sausage making $12
  • Lard rendering $5

Notes: When purchasing pork sides you choose all your own cuts using a cut sheet we provide. We try to head for about 100 lb per side hanging weight but there can be A LOT of variation, so it's good to specify on your cutting sheet your preference for a smaller or larger hog - we'll then do our best to match the carcasses to your request. A 100 lb hanging weight side usually comes to about 65 to 70 lbs of meat cut and wrapped, depending a bit on the cutting options chosen. 

We typically butcher hogs three times a year, in August, October and December. The curing process for our bacon and ham does include the use of nitrates/nitrites. We have talked to several butchers about other options and keep coming back to where we are. For more information on why, click here.
 
ROASTING & SOUP/STEWING CHICKENS:
Whole Roasters - $4.20/lb (we try for an average of about 6.5 to 7 lb, but there is quite a lot of variation) 
Quarter Chickens - $4.75/lb (bone in, skin on, choose from leg or breast pieces; literally a chicken cut in quarters, so breast pieces include ribs and wing and leg pieces include thigh and a wee bit of breast - great for oven roasting!) 
• Chicken organs (liver, heart, gizzard) - $2.60/lb
Soup/Stewing Chickens - $2.50/lb 

We have our pastured meat birds butchered in mid-summer. We do not raise meat birds in the winter. The chicken is frozen and vacuum packed in plastic bags. We sell the chicken by pre-order via our e-mail list - note that it sells out very quickly, so best to get back to us as soon as possible when we send out messages for placement of pre-orders.
 
FREE RANGE EGGS:
$5.00/dozen (Note: These are VERY popular and, as such, are almost always in short supply.)

All prices are subject to change - mainly in conjunction with increases in production costs.
