What is a share of meat?

A Beef Share (either a whole, half or quarter) is the traditional way cattle ranchers sold directly to neighbors - and the tradition continues. With a Beef Share you enjoy convenience, savings, and quality beef from our family to yours.

How do beef shares work?

Raising a single cow to the proper market weight can take up to 2 years. Our beef is pasture-raised, grain-finished with year-round availability. When a beef share is purchased, you are buying a quarter (or half or whole) of a live cow, and the deposit is applied to the total cost of the butchered beef share. Orders are typically ready with a 2-4 week lead time, depending on season, cattle availability, scheduling queue, and other related factors.


A beef share is a discounted bundle of beef, conveniently vacuum-packaged in retail-sized portions, and ready for your freezer. We vacuum seal beef prior to being flash frozen. Both of which are best practices used to retain the highest quality and taste of meat. If you're wondering why flash frozen is higher quality than "fresh", you can read more about that at - Fresh or Flash Frozen.
