The beginning of August 2017
The time is not yet determined.
The slaughter process takes about 1 hour but you can come and go as needed.
A family beef farm in Chattaroy, WA
A slaughterer is coming to Larry's beef farm to prepare a young 2000+ lbs bull for ground beef. The slaughterer will shoot the animal and then drain the blood. Finally, he will cut it into large pieces of hanging meat which takes about 45 minutes. He will then take the meat to his butcher shop and return 1000+ lbs of ground beef to Larry about a week later.
The slaughterer will call Larry and set up a day and time to work at his farm. The slaughterer gives Larry about 1 day notice that he is coming and the slaughterer gives Larry a window of time when he will arrive (kind of like the cable guy.) As soon as Larry has a day and then a time from the slaughterer, he will contact Exploring Families. Then Exploring Families will contact those who have registered and pass along the details of when and where. Sorry there isn't more confirmed details but this is just the way slaughterers work.
Beef for sale! If you want to pre-order your ground beef now, contact Larry directly at 509-499-6369. The last time Exploring Families "advertised" Larry's beef, he ran out of meat. He had more buyers than meat available.
