Ordering in Bulk
How much should I order? The average American consumes 71 pounds of meat per year. On a net weight basis a typical family of two will consume an equivalent of 1/3 of a beef. Ordering in bulk for the first time can be intimidating, since most of us are used to purchasing meat as needed. While the initial cost seems high, it is a very economical choice for families who want high quality meat but at a much better value than what can be purchased at supermarkets and health food stores. If you need convincing on this, check out this bulk meat comparison. Once you've decided to take the plunge, here's what we offer:
Whole Beef Package
Large family? A whole grassfed beef is not only the best value, it provides you with the most versatility for your menu planning. A whole beef typically weighs 550 pounds hanging weight and takes about 13-14 cubic feet of freezer space. (Custom cutting available.)
Half Beef Package
The half beef package is a great for sharing with friends or family members to get the most for your money. A half beef package typically weighs 275 pounds hanging weight and requires 6-7 cubic feet of freezer space. (Custom cutting available.)
Quarter Beef Package aka Split Half
A quarter beef package (Split Half) will keep a family of four eating beef for several months. The average weight is 137 pounds hanging weight. Typically requiring about 3.5 cubic feet of freezer space, it's about the size of two standard cardboard apple boxes. (Standard cut only; no custom cutting.)
Just want to tip-toe in and see what the grassfed experience is all about, then this is for you. The average weight is around 69 pound hanging weight and takes up 1.75 cubic feet of freezer space; this will easily fit in any standard fridge/freezer and is approximatly the size of a standard cardboard apple box (19.5″ x 12″ x 12″). (Standard cut only; no custom cutting.)
All of our meats are sold by the hanging weight; the actual meat you receive will be less due to the cutting away of the bones and fat. We are able to provide you with the average weight of a beef for estimating purposes, but each animal is different, so your meat may be a little bigger or a little smaller, and your final price will reflect this. Once your meat is ready, it can be picked up at the ranch or our affiliated office in Bellevue. We make it super easy to get clean, quality meats free of hormones, stimulants, antibiotics and ionophores.
