When you place an order with us, you will be reserved a spot in one of our processing dates in the fall. After your order, one of our staff will get in touch with you to confirm your order and cut sheet preferences.
If you prefer to make your own cut sheet, you may see a lower percentage final yield of beef from the hanging weight versus the yield percentage from using our standard cut sheet. This can occur from selecting cuts that are; boneless vs. bone-in, ground beef over steaks, or requesting us to dispose of unusual cuts that are included in your purchase.
Also of note, if you purchase a quarter of grass-fed angus beef, each cow only has limited amounts of certain cuts, such as the tongue, liver or heart. Therefore, if you would like us to include these cuts in your order, let us know in the comments.
We do all of our processing between Sep-Oct so that our cows can fatten up for the entirety of the year prior. These are the best times to process because the cows are their largest.
We will reach out to you to confirm your pick-up date and what you can expect for your final bill. Final bills come after the processing date when we have the hanging weights of the cow. After the cow is processed and hung, we age our beef for 2 weeks. This aging provides the greatest amount of tenderness of the meat. After aging, the beef is ready for pickup.
We typically provide 2-3 delivery dates between Oct-Nov. We currently only deliver in the Franktown area, however we are also attempting to make deliveries to the Fort Collins area. If neither of these locations work well for you please let us know and we will find an option that works!
To our customers outside the Colorado/Wyoming area, we do offer delivery with a shipping cost. The location dictates how we package and transport the beef, so contact to one of our staff to discuss these deliveries.
Lastly, our goal is to provide you with grass-fed beef that exceeds your expectations. If at any time there are issues with your beef or the process, please reach out either Brad or Kate and we will make the issue right. Taking care of our customers has always been the first goal of Touchstone Angus and we will take every effort to satisfy you.

A quarter of beef requires about 4 cubic feet. You will need about one cubic foot of freezer space for every 35 – 40 pounds of packaged meat.
