Beef & Beer Happy Hour | Pickup day!

Get ready for the Holidays, it’s time for beef and beer happy hour! Plan to pick up your beef and share a drink at Rocky Hill Farm and Beef Friday, November 18th, 5-7:30 pm. 

Beef is currently aging and being prepared to your specification at the butcher and will be picked up from the butchers just hours before the beef and beer happy hour. If you can’t make it, reach out to us and we can make other arrangements!

You will receive your individual hanging weights and invoices in a separate e-mail so you can bring your check with you when we meet at the farm.

Didn’t order beef? That’s ok! Come out for the happy hour and meet the Rocky Hill Farm and Beef team and tour the farm. Want to be alerted for the next order in Spring 2017? Email us and ask to be added to our alert list.
