How do i order?

Stopping into the Mercantile, email, or phone are the best ways to get ahold of us and express your interest in buying bulk. To get the ball rolling, we help you complete a cut sheet to be sure you know what you will be getting upon delivery. At that point, we ask for a 50% deposit on beef wholes and halves, and on lamb wholes - we do not require a deposit on beef quarters.

What's the cost?

We price our bulk orders on a hanging weight basis. This spreads the cost across all cuts and streamlines the process. All our prices include processing, vacuum sealing and flash freezing - the price you see is the price you pay.

What do I get?

The range of cuts can varies. The benefit of working closely with us and our butcher is that we can tailor the cut sheet to your carnivorous whims. For example - if you're not into crock pots, but love to grill and barbecue, we can make it so you receive more steaks, more ground, and fewer roasts.
