Where are your cattle from?


Our cattle are born and raised in Cheney, WA in a natural, low stress environment. At Holbert Farms, we not only care for our animals but also the land and the forage we raise them on.




How much do your roasts and steaks weigh?


Our roasts are 3.5-4.5 lbs. Our steaks are 1" thick, wrapped 2 to a package and weigh 2-3 lbs.




What is grass-fed & grass-finished?


Our cattle are raised to eat freely on a natural diet of grass. Due to our climate, in the winter months our cattle are fed high-quality grass and alfalfa mix from the region. A grass-fed & grass-finished diet provides a beef product that is lower in cholesterol, naturally higher in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, lower in unhealthy Omega-6s, and higher in vitamins A and E, and antioxidants. Healthy and content cows make for better beef.




How much beef should I order for my family?


A small family (2 adults and 0-2 children): 1/8 beef A medium family (2 adults and 2-3 children): 1/4 beef A large family (2 adults and 3-4 children): 1/2 beef
