All cuts of Hickory Chance Beef LLC are dry-aged, vacuum-packed and quick frozen. All cuts are available for sale from our mobile unit that has been certified by Harford County MD Health Department. Our beef is Federally Inspected. We use certified scales. And all our beef is born and raised on our Bel Air Farms.
All our beef is raised naturally with no feed additives other than our home grown corn and roasted soybeans that are ground to make dry feed. Hay, corn silage and grass are also part of their diet. Cattle are allowed access to pasture, rather than confined in a crowded feedlot.
No animal by-products have ever been fed in the last 100 years on this farm.
The feeding mix consists of ground shelled corn, vitamins, minerals, dry molasses, barley and roasted soybeans.
Our cattle are harvested young, 14-20 months of age.
All meat is Federally inspected and only healthy animals are processed.
