We have two options available on our half beef share. We have freezer beef and custom cut. Our freezer beef are already processed and ready for delivery, our custom cut are beef that can be cut to your liking.
our freezer beef come with 2 steaks per package cut at 3/4”, roasts are 3-4 lbs and ground beef is in 1lb packages.
On a custom cut 1/2 beef means you get exactly what you want! You select the cuts you want, the thickness, quantity and how you want it packaged! The ultimate beef experience, but make sure you have the freezer space! Expect to get 55% of the half the live weight! That’s roughly 250 to 350 pounds of Beef in your freezer! You will need up to 8-9 cubic feet of freezer space for half a beef.
So, let’s talk about how this works. YOU pay the deposit, and we will contact you of available dates. Right now, we have spots available through the end of the year. This deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE. Then you fill out the cut sheet, which is attached, and you send it back to us.
From there we drop off the beef on the date you requested to the butcher. Then we wait. The beef is then hung and dry aged for 14-18 days, then it is cut and packaged per your request.
At this point the beef is cut up to your specifications, and we get a final Rail Weight (which is the weight of the carcass hanging on the hook), and an invoice is generated when we pick up the beef from the butcher. We charge $5.15 per pound x Rail Weight/2. So if the rail weight of your beef is 800 pounds then your half is 400 pounds. Your invoice will be $2060 minus your $250 deposit, so $1810.
Once the invoice is paid, we schedule delivery with you, and drop it off at your doorstep… for FREE!
Occasionally when we do not have a beef assigned we will have it cut with our standard cut. These can be purchased when available. Cut with steaks 3/4" thick, 3-4 lb roasts and 1 lb packages of burger.
Then you just have to pack your freezer and try not to eat all the good stuff at once!
It's just that simple!
