BEEF SHARE FAQs
Or, Important Information to know Before you Order.
How do custom beef shares work?
You choose the portion of beef that you want (1/4, 1/2, or whole), and choose the harvest date that you want. Send us your request by phone or email.
How much freezer space do I need?
We recommend at least 1 cubic foot of freezer space for each 25 pounds of beef.
How are beef shares processed, cut and wrapped?
Steving Meats, in Kersey, CO, processes all Meadow Maid Foods beef. Steving is a small, family-owned and operated, USDA-inspected processing facility. This is the cleanest processing facility that we have ever visited, and you may view their cutting floor from their office when you pick up your beef.
What is the cost of a Beef Share?
Each beef share is different, just as each animal is different. Your total final cost* is final packaged weight of beef times price per pound. Your deposit is part of your total final cost. See Current Beef Share Pricing.
Why is there a non-refundable deposit on a beef share?
Your deposit reserves your harvest slot. Animals will not be slaughtered without paid deposits. Deposits are non-refundable, so please be sure that you want a share prior to paying your deposit.
What are Cutting Instructions? How do I do them?
Cutting Instructions tell the butcher how to cut and wrap your meat.
What is the deadline for ordering Beef Shares?
We accept orders up to one week prior to each harvest date, or until all harvest slots are filled, whichever comes first.
May I Customize Cutting Instructions?
A 1/2 or whole beef order will be cut and wrapped to your specifications. Some customers choose one of our standard cutting options, or start there and make some changes.
How quickly must I pick up my beef once it is ready?
Freezer space at Steving Meats (indeed at any processing facility) is at a premium, so they request that you pick up your beef as soon as possible once it is ready for you.
