When non-profit groups, or local organizations, such as fire departments, churches, and even schools, need to raise money for any number of needs, what do they typically plan? A fundraiser of course!
One of the top fundraising ideas is a large, well organized event. Such as a 5K, a formal gala, or a carnival or fair of some sort. Typically, it’s filled with games and activities attendees pay to participate in.
At most of these types of fundraising events, there is a silent auction to help further raise money. During a silent auction, there are a number of items donated to be auctioned off. There is typically a predetermined start and end to bidding time and with charity auctions, there is often a fixed starting bid amount. Attendees of the auction print their bids on a sheet of paper that is typically placed in front of the item and at the end of the bidding time, the highest bidder takes home their prize.
Oak Barn Beef has been quite the prize at silent auctions in the past. Bringing in a decent amount of funding. For a good reason too! Our Nebraska raised, dry aged beef is the best beef! Our process of dry aging is made for beef connoisseurs. It is beef that will melt in your mouth, with its unrivaled marbling! Can’t forget how tender it is too! A knife can slide through one of our steaks with ease and it will be the most enjoyable to eat because of this.
Our beef bundles are prized at fundraising events because of the practicality. Most people would spend their money easily to get their mouths on one of these tender, juicy steaks while supporting a good cause at the same time.
Some of the more popular bundles are:
25 Pounds of Ground Beef.
Perfect for grilling burgers, tacos, and casseroles galore.
Whether you are planning a fundraising event or would like to donate an item to be raffled or auctioned off, consider of our Oak Barn Beef bundles. It is sure to be the star of the event!
We get asked a lot how the whole process of Oak Barn Beef works! How fun it is to dive in and answer that question. If you want to read how our family farm produces premium beef, that is dry aged by a local small town butcher, this blog post is for you! Here's a summary...
Buying dry aged beef means that you are buying less water resulting in more nutrient dense beef. This is because during the dry aging process. The beef actually loses water, hence “dry aging” the beef is drying out. Now when it is worded like that it may seem like the beef your buying will be less juicy and not as satisfying. This is not true because marbling (if a high quality steak) will create a ready to melt-in-your-mouth as it is cooked to perfection.
