Bringing Your Bulk Beef Home: Freezer Space Guide

Freezer filled with steaks and other custom cuts of beef

Purchasing beef in bulk, directly from ranchers like us, is called bulk beef or beef shares. Simply put, you get enough meat to fill your freezer and you pay less per pound than you pay at your local grocery store. You pay the same price per pound for Rib Eye steaks and Prime Rib roast as you do for Ground Beef. Our price per pound is calculated on the live weight of the animal.

We sell our natural Red Angus beef in both Custom Bulk Beef Shares and Standard Beef Shares.

Custom Bulk Beef Shares
Customize every cut! Choose your steak thickness and roast size, plus select specialty cuts like Brisket, Organ Cuts, Ribs, and more. We sell our custom bulk beef shares in three sizes:

  1. Quarter Beef
  2. Half Beef
  3. Whole Beef


Standard Beef Shares
Our standard beef shares include all the cuts you’d receive in a typical side of beef and they ship right to your door! The quantity of each cut differs for each share size.

  1. Eighth Beef
  2. Quarter Beef
  3. Half Beef


Because you’ll receive your entire order of beef at one time, it’s important to make sure you have enough freezer space to accommodate your order. Use this quick guide to select the right size beef, and the right amount of freezer space. Our beef can remain delicious for up to one year when kept frozen. We recommend using multiple deep freezers when you purchase a half or whole freezer beef so you have easy access to all your cuts of beef.


Quarter Beef Freezer Space

When you order a quarter beef, you’ll receive approximately 80 – 110 pounds of Christensen Ranch freezer beef. You’ll need at least 10 cubic feet of freezer space to accommodate your freezer beef.


Half Beef Freezer Space

You’ll receive approximately 160 – 220 pounds of beef when you order a half beef. Your freezer beef will require at least 20 cubic feet of freezer space.


Whole Beef Freezer Space

You’ll be filling at least four deep freezers when you order a whole beef. With approximately 320 – 440 pounds of freezer beef, you’ll need at least 40 cubic feet of freezer space.
