Description

Fear Farming takes pride in its exceptional herd of cattle, comprised of resilient Station cattle hailing from the vast expanses of the Nullarbor.

Originating from the heart of Australia, these robust animals embody the spirit of the outback, adapted to thrive in diverse and challenging landscapes.

Our herd boasts a harmonious mix of “Bos Indicus” and other carefully selected breeds, creating a unique genetic profile that enhances both the hardiness and flavor of the beef.

The cattle’s journey from the arid Nullarbor region contributes to the distinct character of our beef, reflecting the rich tapestry of Australian agriculture.

With a commitment to ethical and sustainable practices, Fear Farming ensures that every step of the cattle’s life is a testament to the resilience and beauty of Australian farming traditions.

Step 2: Choose your portion size

$15.00 / KG Dressed Weight

Pricing is based on "dressed weight"

What is “dressed weight? and why is it important?

When buying a side (or quarter) of a cow/sheep etc, the final weight you receive will be less than the total listed by the farmer.

Dressed weight, otherwise known as “hanging weight” is the weight of the carcass after the animal as been killed and the head, blood and offal removed.

So this dressed weight includes all the meat, fat and bones from the “side” of an animal.

From here, the butcher will prepare your “side” or “quarter” based on your specifications.

Some loss of weight can occur through the process of “dry aging” where the meat is allowed to safely “age” this helps to tenderize the meat, but results in some weight loss.

The cut specifications can also have an impact on your final weight, for example, T-bones with bone out will weigh less than bone in.

Dressed weight is used as it is the “most fair” and “most correct” method of weighing an animal for processing.

On average, “boxed weight” can be anywhere from 20% to 30% less than dressed weight.

With Farmer to Fridge, it’s important to understand exactly what you’re buying.

Unlike a supermarket where you can choose specific cuts, a whole animal will come with a range of meat cuts. 

The choices below help the butcher prepare your mixed portion to be as close as possible to your specifications.

For 1/4 and 1/8th portion purchases, you’ll recieve a ‘mixed quarter’ where you’ll get an allocation of meat from each ‘section’ of the cow. For 1/2 and whole sides, this is more straightforward. 

On average each carcass has approximately

  • 29% chuck 
  • 9% Ribs
  • 16% loin
  • 22% Round
  • 19% Thin (flank, skirt, brisket, stew meat, mince)
  • 5% miscellaneous

With each side / quarter beef you will get generous portion of mince and sausages. These are created from off-cuts from your side of beef, to ensure you get as much as usable meat as possible!

This is general information provided by Farmer to Fridge – for specific information for your purchase please refer to the product description.


We took a trip to one of our local farmers and weighed out a side of beef. This should give you a rough idea as to what you’ll get in each pack.

The following was produced from a dressed weight of approximately 120kg / side.

Cut Sheet Selections

This is where you tell the butcher how they should prepare each part of your cow.

Regardless of whether you order a 1/4, or a whole cow, you’ll get a selection of each cut. The more quarters you order, the more of each cut you’ll receive.

The overall price won’t change, unless your selection requires more work by the butcher. These extra costs are indicated beneath each option if applicable.

Bones *

If you don’t need or want the bones, you can select so here. However please remember that you’re buying the animal as “dressed weight” and these are included with your purchase price.

No Bones Some Meaty All Bones

When preparing your beef, the butcher will make mince and sausages from all the off cuts and trimmings of your cow. This is included free with your order.
