"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 you a beef side. 

We live in the heart of Missouri cow-country, any farmer around will happily sell you a half or whole cow, and 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 170 - 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.

What size freezer do I need for a 1/2 Beef?

At ~180 total pounds of meat, a stand-alone freezer is recommended. A 1/2 Beef will fill a large 16 cu ft chest freezer about half full

Rule of thumb: 1 cu ft freezer space for 25 lb meat

Chest freezer comparison, large

Deposit of $800 secures your reservation for a 1/2 Beef Side. Remaining balance due 7 -10 days before scheduled delivery.
