  • Why should I order my beef from Independence Ark Farm?

  • What are the health benefits of Grass-Fed Beef
    There are almost too many to mention, but here is a start: A great source of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), a cancer fighting super nutrient Higher in Vitamin E. Higher in minerals, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, Keto-Friendly with ample amounts of all three essential electrolytes. Lower in Saturated Fats linked with heart disease. Higher in essential heart healthy Omega-3s. Lower in total fat and calories with more nutritional value.
  • When should I expect my delivery?
    Your cow is scheduled for slaughter at the USDA packing and processing facility upon confirmation of your order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your freshly cut beef to hang and cure and another week for shipping and handling. Burger Boxes and smaller orders will be sent out weekly if it is in stock. All monthly subscriptions will be sent out monthly based on the order date.
  • What do we feed our cows?
    Our black angus beef cows are pastured on lush grass in North East Arkansas, they are free-range grass-fed cattle with full-access to mineral and salt lick, hay, and a ration of sweet feed of 12% protein to assist with moving them from pasture to trailer. This is grass-fed natural beef as nature intended. No force feeding, no steroids, additives, or hormones. 100% Natural.
  • How much freezer room do I need for a whole cow?
    The general rule of thumb is 1 cubic foot of freezer space per 25 lbs of cut and vacuum-sealed beef. You would need about 13 cubic feet for a whole processed cow weighing about 400 lbs 7 cubic feet for a half processed cow weighing about 200 lbs (available at Walmart for $200) 4 cubic feet for a quarter processed cow weighing about 100 lbs 2 cubic feet for an eighth processed cow weighing about 50 lbs The average freezer capacity of a standard indoor refrigerator is 5 cubic feet.
  • How old are our cattle when they are processed?
    We process our cattle between 12-24 months. Bone-In cuts, such as Porter House and Bone-In Rib-eye can only be procured from a young cow. Age is confirmed by our USDA processors by tooth indenturing.
  • Our Operation
    We buy Stocker Cattle, which are weaned calves that are on a forage only diet until they are processed prior to 30 months. We also source grass-fed stocker cattle from local ranchers at the auction prior to them being sent to the feedlot. The auction provides a large selection of Ozark cattle that fits our important criteria: over 700lbs, under 30 months, and grass-fed.
