Welcome to our On-Line Sale!

It is time for some major Spring cleaning of both our house and our shop and its time to downsize a bit. We have tons of things for sale and have lowered the price on many of the items. We are still working to get it all photographed and on here so be patient, bookmark us, and please check back often. We have electronics, antiques, home decor, clothes, and many new things. If there is something that you're looking for and you don't see, ask away. You never know we just may have what you're looking for. I will remove the post each time something sells so you will know what's still available. Everything is from a pet free & smoke free home.

Elk Meat

We own Rocky Mountain Elk Ranch and we have quality elk for sale. We will deliver it to the butcher for you. $550 (plus tax) for a whole elk. Hanging weight on the meat will average between 220-270 lbs. The butcher charges $.83/lb hanging weight and you'll get back between 65% -70% meat all cut and wrapped after they debone it. For example an elk weighing in at 250 lbs hanging weight, will yeild about 170lbs of butchered meat with a basic cut and wrap bill at $207.50. Sausage and Jerky is usually extra.
