Purchasing beef in bulk, directly from ranchers like us, is called freezer beef. 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 and we sell our natural Red Angus beef in three sizes: quarter beef, half beef, or whole 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.
When you order a quarter beef, you’ll receive approximately 100 – 130 pounds of Christensen Ranch freezer beef. You’ll need at least 10 cubic feet of freezer space to accommodate your freezer beef.
You’ll receive approximately 220 – 260lbs of beef when you order a half beef. Your freezer beef will require at least 20 cubic feet of freezer space.
You’ll be filling at least four deep freezers when you order a whole beef. With approximately 440 – 520lbs of freezer beef, you’ll need at least 40 cubic feet of freezer space.
