Beef Sides

When convenience matters, our 1/4 and 1/2 beef sides bring premium quality beef to the dinner table for families of all sizes

"I'm so tired of buying beef piece by piece at the store."

Filling the freezer with our beef makes meal prep easier, the weekly grocery bill smaller, and the plates cleaner all while knowing your dollars are staying locally to support agriculture here in the Ozarks.

Any farmer can sell a beef side

We live in the heart of Missouri cow-country, any farmer around would happily sell you a half or whole cow, haul it to the butcher shop. 

You'd be expected to pay extra processing, call the shop to give cut instructions, and make arrangements to pick it up after work or on the weekend. 

Then it's loading up the car with 200 lbs of un-sorted, butcher paper-wrapped frozen beef packages, driving home & spending a few hours sorting and packing your bounty into the freezer.

By the end you'll be left with cold hands wondering if all was worth it

Blue Silo Beef does it different

We're trashing that traditional bulk beef buying model. 

It's easier our way:

- Simple pricing paid directly to us with no extra processing charges.
- A cut list to know exactly how many packages of each cut you'll receive.
- Options to customize the bundle to fit your family's preferences and needs.

- Sealed in thick vac-pac to maintain freshness, resist freezer burn and package tears.

Besides size, what's the difference between a 1/2 and 1/4 Beef?

A 1/2 Beef offers the most options to customize and includes a whole brisket and Tri-Tip.

How can I customize my beef side?

  • Making a portion of ground beef into patties
  • Making a portion of ground beef into brats (extra processing charge may apply)
  • Pre-seasoning ground beef with Chorizo or Mild Italian Seasoning
  • Choosing steak thickness
  • Choosing larger packages (2 lb ground beef v. 1 lb standard; 5 lb roasts v 3 lb standard)
  • Altering the cut list to maximize ground beef
  • Cutting fajita strips, stew meat or kabobs
  • Choosing to take organ meat

What size of freezer do I need?

You will likely need a standalone freezer to store a 1/4 or 1/2 beef. Either a chest or upright style freezer will work. Chest freezers can fit more and maintain a more consistant temperature. Plan on 2.5 cu ft. of freezer space for every 50 lbs of meat. From personal experience, I know a 1/2 beef comfortably fits in a 12 cu ft chest freezer with room to organize. 

How long is frozen beef good for?

So long as the product isn't subjected to temperature fluctuations and the vac-pac seal stays intact, our frozen beef retains its freshness for 6-12 months after packaging, sometimes longer.

I'm not sure if I can fit a 1/4, are there any other options?

Yes! We offer a 1/8 beef option that will fit in a home freezer. We can build custom bundles to fit your family's specific needs.
