FAQ

HOW GOOD IS TCC BEEF?

Typically our beef grades at prime or choice, the top two grades of beef available that you would receive in a nice restaurant. We deliver that same quality beef directly to you; at a lower price than the cost you’d pay in a nice restaurant.

HOW DO I GET TCC BEEF?

Place your order on our website.  You can get TCC beef in 3 ways:

1. We ship smaller packs of beef directly to your doorstep! Your beef will arrive frozen and ready to throw into your freezer for future meals!

2. We have local pickups that are scheduled out for each month in Meridian, Eagle and Boise. You can locate those details under the 'Pickup & Shipping' tab at the top of our website.

3. You can order a beef share in 1/4, 1/2 or whole beef sizes. Your beef share will be picked up directly from us at the Meridian Park and Ride (3047 W Overland Rd, Meridian, ID). Pickup is typically the last Wednesday of the month from 4-6pm. You will get this date as soon as your deposit is placed, or feel free to reach out to us if you need to know before placing your deposit. 

WHAT CUTS OF MEAT WILL I GET IF I ORDER A BEEF SHARE?

That’s up to you.  We want the package count and cuts to work for you and your family. You can choose how many steaks per package, how thick, etc.

If you choose ¼ beef, it is a standard set of cuts so that we can split 1/2 beef evenly between two customers. If you order ½  beef or more, you get to choose your cuts and talk with the butcher directly about what you want.

If there are requests for really specialized cuts or items, there may be a small upcharge that you would be responsible to cover beyond the cost per lb paid to TCC.

All shares will include ground beef, roasts, premium steaks, middle of the road steaks and an assortment of limited cuts like tri tip or flank steak.

HOW MUCH ARE YOUR BEEF SHARES?

The cost of our beef shares varies with each animal we butcher.  The costs below are based on our most recent harvest but every animal will vary and your cost could be higher or lower than those shown below.

 

1/4 beef average:

Vacuum seal: 200 lbs x $5.25 = $1050 + tax = $1,113

 

1/2 beef average:


Vacuum seal:  400 lbs x $5 = $2,000 + tax = $2,120


Whole beef average:

Vacuum seal: 800 lbs x $4.75 = $3,800+ tax = $4,028.00

 

CAN I MAKE PAYMENTS FOR MY BEEF SHARE?

Yes! We're happy to set up payments arrangements that work for you. Many customers prefer to pay in a lump sum just before pickup but we also have many customers that pay $150 - $250 each pay period so they reduce that lump sum due at the end.

The $250 or $500 deposit is applied to the total due. 

Just email us at service@thomascattlecompany.com or place your deposit order and add notes that you'd like to setup a payment plan.

HOW LONG CAN I FREEZE MY BEEF SHARE ONCE I GET IT?

Vacuum Seal: 1 – 2 years

WHAT’S IN THE FEED YOU GIVE YOUR HERD?

For 85% of the life of our beef, they graze feed in the Owyhee Mountains and our ranches in southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon.  The cows and calves head up the mountains in March and then in October and November of each year, we are moving them back down the mountains to our homeplace in Oreana, ID. 

For the last 120-150 days of their life, our cattle are fed a ration of grass and alfalfa, with a side of corn, all grown locally in our local valley. Finishing with grain  provides superior marbling, tenderness and rich taste in TCC all natural beef.

Your purchase is not only supporting our ranch family but also the farm families that raise the feed we finish our all-natural beef on. 

 

WHERE IS OREANA, IDAHO?

Oreana, Idaho is a small farm and ranch community located one hour and twenty minutes southeast of Boise, Idaho.  Our population sign says '7, sometimes 8' if that gives you any idea of how small it is.

Our nearest big towns are Nampa, ID or Mountain Home, ID, both being about 45 minutes away from the ranch.  We are squarely between Grand View, Idaho and Murphy, Idaho.

 

DO YOU USE THE mRNA VACCINE?

There are ZERO ranchers in the US currently using mRNA in their beef. That’s because there are no vaccines approved for use in beef cattle that use mRNA technology.

While this is a hotly contested conversation, the silver lining is that consumers are able to ask these questions directly to their ranchers. When you go direct, you get direct access to ask questions, learn and find out more from those that are producing your beef.

Our goal at Thomas Cattle Company is to provide you quality beef that you can count on. We are certified all natural by third parties, meaning no added hormones or antibiotics are used.

SHIPPING & RETURNS

Our ultimate goal at Thomas Cattle Company is to provide All Natural premium quality Angus beef, direct to your doorstep, to feed and fuel your family.  All of our beef is USDA inspected and frozen for ultimate freshness and flavor.

Currently, we ship our beef every Monday to ensure delivery before the weekend (contingent upon weather and/or other uncontrollable factors) Orders must be placed by 3 pm MST on Sunday to be included in the Monday order.  Once your order is placed you will receive an email with an invoice, tracking number, and expected date of delivery. All products are currently shipped through UPS. Any non-perishable items purchased from TCC will be shipped within 1-2 business days after your order is placed.  Non-perishable items will be delivered through USPS.

Currently TCC only delivers to the contiguous United States. Unfortunately, we cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes, all shipments REQUIRE a valid physical street address.
It is the customer’s responsibility to provide and verify the correct shipping address. Thomas Cattle Company is not responsible for damage to the products if a recipient is not available to accept the shipment at time of delivery. We do our best to communicate the timeframe for shipping so you are able to grab it off the porch and freeze it immediately.  We ship without a required signature to ensure your product arrives in a timely manner and is left on your doorstep for you to grab. The billing customer is responsible for ensuring that a recipient will be available for delivery. It is highly recommended you monitor the package to ensure that it can be received by you or a designated recipient.

 

Beef Shipping Prices

Due to the sensitive nature of our perishable beef product, we have worked hard to create a shipping process that is fast and efficient. We ship our beef directly from the ranch in Oreana, Idaho, to your front doorstep. Flat rate beef shipping prices are based on distances from our address. 

Most of the beef will arrive frozen though some slight thawing may occur.  As long as the beef is under 40 degrees Fahrenheit, it is still safe to consume according to USDA guidelines. Please place all frozen beef into the freezer as soon as you receive it.  

Our goal is to have it arrive completely frozen but there are some items outside of our our control such as weather or natural disasters.  We will do our best to communicate and will also provide tracking information to each customer for tracking purposes. 

It is requested that our customers order at least 8 pounds of beef so that the beef stays as frozen as possible.  We will ship it with dry ice. Amounts less than 8 lbs tend to defrost too quickly. 

Pacific & Mountain Time Zones: $29 

Central Time Zone: $59

Eastern Time Zone: $69

Return information: 

 

Due to the perishable nature of our products, any beef purchased may not be returned. If you are unsatisfied with a product or experienced any delivery issues, please contact us at service@thomascattlecompany.com and we will work with you to make it right.

If there's anything we can do, please let us know! Thank you for your support and business. What we do couldn't be accomplished without the support of our customers!

    "After being on a strict carnivore diet for almost a year, TCC beef is by far superior to any other beef I’ve eaten. You can see it in the rich red color and meaty taste. It’s also more nutrient dense than mass produced beef. I can’t prove it, but I can feel it. And my health seems to confirm that. Eat TCC beef and get healthy!"

  • RHONDA

    "Thank you, thank you, thank you! Absolutely love the beef I received from you! Tender, tasty, and so glad I found you! No more "store-bought beef" for me!"

  • ANDREA

    "My dad is a retired butcher. He owned a wholesale meat company in Eastern Idaho for over 20 years. I sent the holiday bundle to him for Christmas. His first comment was on the beautiful marbling! He had the steaks for Christmas dinner and loved them. He was beyond impressed! My dad knows quality beef and he said 5 stars!!"

  • MICHAEL

    "This is a great company to work with, there Customer service is something that I have not experienced in a long time. Even though a small error was made they stand behind there products. The suet tallow arrived today and will be rendered tomorrow. The tallow beef fat I got rendered great and I am enjoying the benefits. I will be a loyal customer for a long time to come. Great products and service."

  • CHRIS

    "So this is my first tasting of anything that Thomas cattle Company has offered, and I followed the instructions to The T. I actually cooked it today March 27, 2024 and I can tell you the meat is excellent. I just now took it out of the slow cooker and after brining it for five days and doing all that, and then cooking it slow, I gotta give you 100 out of 100 not only is the recipe really good, the beef is “excellent” thank you I gotta make room in my freezer now to buy some beef from you."

  • TRACI

    "We have been buying hamburger and other meats for a year now and have never been disappointed. It’s always lean and tender. I definitely know when I am not eating meat from Thomas Cattle Company."
