How does buying a whole, half or quarter animal work?
When you order a whole, half, or quarter animal from us we deliver the animal to the processing facility. We will contact you with the hanging weight of the animal. You then need to contact the processor with your cutting instructions, and send a check payable to Miller Brothers Grass Farm. The processor will notify you when your meat is ready for pick-up.

By utilizing these practices and allowing our animals to consume the feeds they were designed to consume eliminates any need for added chemicals, hormones, and antibiotics.
