Freezer Order FAQs
What is the cost? Our beef price is based on the current wholesale price per pound for swinging (dressed carcass) sides of beef plus processing fees.
Call us for current prices.
How much meat do I get from a side of beef? Pricing is based on the hanging weight, before trimming and de-boning. Standard retail cutting removes approximately 33% of the dressed weight. For example, if a side weighs 300 lbs, you will receive around 200 lbs of beef.
Do I have to buy a whole beef? Our beef can be purchased by the side (half beef), by fourths (half of a full side), or by sixths or eighths. The smaller packages provide you with a proportionate amount of the same variety of cuts. We do not generally sell hind quarters or front quarters separately.
What cuts of beef will I receive? Cutting instructions will be discussed with you when you pre-order. Your instructions will include choice of cuts, roast size, steak thickness, number of steaks per package, and burger and stew package sizes.
Indicated below is a fairly typical breakdown of retail cuts on a side of beef:
- 3-4 blade roasts
- 3-4 cross rib roasts
- 1 standing rib roast
- 8 prime rib steaks
- 4 x 2lb shortribs
- 45 lbs burger and stew
- 14 inside round steaks
- 5 lbs stir fry
- 3-4 outside round roasts
- 16 T-Bone steaks
- 8 sirloin steaks
- 6 tenderloin steaks
- 3 sirloin tip roasts
- 30 lbs stew and burger
How much freezer space will I need?Based on the example of a 300 lb side you will receive approximately four 18"x12"x9" (45cmx30cmx22.5cm) boxes of meat.
Do you deliver?Our pricing does not include delivery. Orders requiring delivery will have pertinent charges applied.
