Grass Fed Beef Raised in New Hamphire

We proudly raise Galloway cattle. This ancient, heritage breed of cattle originated in Scotland during the 17th century. It’s one of the longest established meat cattle in the world. The Galloway is well adapted for New England weather, with a good temperament and ease of handling.

Each cow is cared for on our New Hampshire Farm. They spend their days grazing the pastures, drinking from the ponds, and basking in the sun. Happy and healthy cows are essential for nutritious and delicious beef. 

We think it’s the finest grass fed beef in New Hampshire.

Buying a share of a cow is the best way to stock your freezer with the best local grass fed beef in New Hampshire. Here’s how:

1. Selection

2. Deposit

After you’re comfortable with your order, a $300 deposit reserves your place in line. You can pay by cash or check.

We process the cow to your specifications and send the full invoice based on the actual weight of the cow. 


We’ll let you know when everything is ready for pick up at the farm. You can find a lot of great recipes here.

Grass Fed Beef Pricing

Pricing is $7.85 per pound, based on the hot hanging weight of the animal. Our cows typically yield a hot hanging weight of 750 lbs. after slaughter. Once deboned and trimmed there will be approximately 500 lbs. of finished meat for vacuum sealing and freezing.

Beef is sold in whole, half, and quarter shares.

As the cows are processed “to order”, we require a $300 deposit for all whole, half, and quarter shares. We will let you know the processing timeline before the deposit is due.

Freezer Space Considerations

 A whole cow will require 16 cubic feet of freezer space. A side (half a cow) takes 8 cubic feet. And a quarter share takes up 4 cubic feet of space. 

We’re Here to Talk You Through The Whole Process

About BuckleDown Farm

In 2015, we purchased a farm in Francestown, NH to create a business to provide friends and family with a wholesome food source other than the unknown sources provided from your common supermarkets of today.  

It took 5 years of rebuilding and prepare for this task. Though we are small in stature, we are big in faith, and have a moral obligation to be good stewards of God’s land, and one another. This translates to how we care for our animals.
