Products and Pricing
We offer a variety of plans suitable for every household. Buying a bulk share of Mammoth Valley beef is the best way to save time and money!
Our explanations of the products below are designed to give you the knowledge you need to make the best decision for your family.
On average, a bulk beef will be divided into 20% steaks, 30% roasts, and 50% ground beef. However, this is where those cuts sheets make a difference; if you don't select to get many steaks and roasts, you'll end up with a lot more ground beef!
Take a look below to learn more.
A year+ supply for 2 person household
With a quarter beef, you can receive 3-4 chuck/arm roasts, 3 round roasts, 1 brisket, 25 steaks, 10 lbs. ribs, and a significant amount of ground beef.
Assuming a 1,200 lb animal, you'll take home a little over 100 lbs of beef if you buy a quarter. Avg $800-1000
Half Beef (Most Popular)
2 adults + 2 kids for 1 year / Best custom beef option
This amount of beef can fill some freezers entirely, and it will offer most families a consistent supply of beef all year long.
Assuming a 1,200 lb animal, a half beef will be around 220 lbs to go in the freezer, occupying up to 8 cubic feet of space. (Freezers costing $1000 average 20 cu. ft.)
It's what's for dinner for the whole family! Great for grill masters as you'll have all the specialty cuts just for you.
Our families that get a whole beef are just that - families. This is perfect to share with parents, grandkids, siblings, etc. Our first whole beef was for a multigenerational house hold.
Assuming a 1,200 lb animal, a whole beef will be around 440 lbs to go in the freezer.
A whole beef takes almost all of a large upright 20 cu. ft. freezer!
Live, Hanging, and Take Home Weight
AKA Hoof Weight
This is the weight of live animal when it arrives to the processor. Our beefs are typically 1,000-1,200 lbs. We will assume 1,200 lbs for our example.
AKA dressed weight
This is the weight of carcass with all the non-edible parts removed. This is the most common weight to use to calculate the cost of the animal. This is typically 60% of the live weight, so ~720 lbs.
Take Home Weight
AKA Boxed or Retail Rate
As the name suggest, this is the amount you take home for the freezer. What your order looks like with vary depending on your cut sheet (the fat percentage, if you chose more specialty cuts, bone in vs. bone out). This is typically 60% of the hanging weight. Again, assuming a 1,200 lb animal, your take home weight will be ~430 lbs.
Plan on one cubic foot of freezer space for every 15-20 lbs of meat. Ex: for a 1/2 beef, you'll need a 7 cu ft. freezer.
Once you know the amount of beef you'd like to order...
Call or message us in the form below to reserve your spot. We book our spots at the butcher over a year in advance, so availability is limited. This is why we ask for a non-refundable deposit well in advance of your processing date. The deposit is what we use to hold your spot since we continue to sell out year after year, and it is your deposit alone that will reserve your spot for the agreed upon processing date. Your deposit will be deducted from your final balance.
The processing fee which is paid to the butcher is separate, and we will add that on to your total. It's typically $450 for the whole animal.
As the processing date (the day the beef is dropped off at the butcher) gets closer, we will schedule pick-up or delivery depending on your location and preference. You will be able to fill out a custom cut sheet from our butcher so you can select the types and size of cuts you would like.
The beef is usually packaged and ready to be picked up 2-3 weeks after the processing date.
The remainder of the cost due on the beef will be required upon delivery.
