That being said, we also recognize the value to the health conscious consumer of a meat that is high in protein and low in fat, and that is also incredibly versatile. For that reason, we do have meat available for purchase and we can ship it. We get about 25 to 30 pounds of meat per bird, and sell it in steak filets, ground meat, and also in jerky and meat sticks. The jerky and meat sticks are easily shipped as they do not require refrigeration, and the prices on the website reflect that. For the steaks and ground emu meat, we recommend that you call for pricing, as the cost is determined by the weight of your meat package as well as the special shipping requirements to get your meat to you fresh.
We invite you to try our recipe for Emu Burgers.
