Best smoked or slow roasted for an incredible flavor. We offer whole briskets or choose from either the flat or the point (tip). The flat cut makes up the majority of the brisket and comes with a thick layer of fat on top that keeps the meat moist when cooked. This cut is best for slicing. The point (tip) is the fatty part of the brisket that's perfect smoked at a low temp. Avg 5 lbs
West Forty Market
After years of rave reviews over the beef John & Sue Ebensberger were producing on their hobby farm, West Forty (40 acres west of Greene, IA) was born!
We have been selling individual cuts and custom wholesale options in Greene since 2013 and Des Moines since 2016. In September 2019, John & Sue purchased the grocery store in Greene, renaming it West Forty Market. You can find all of our locally raised meats at the store!
After being a full time vendor at the Des Moines Farmers Market and offering delivery around the metro, Teresa (their daughter) decided to open her own retail store in Ankeny, IA in May 2021. West Forty Market is located in Uptown Ankeny and features over 120 cuts of beef, pork, chicken, bison, lamb and turkey - all raised on local Iowa farms and butchered in Iowa. We also feature over a dozen local products, including pasta, rubs, sauces and honey.
Grass-fed, grain-finished and raised with love and care ... we are confident you'll enjoy the amazing flavor and tenderness of our meats!
