Beef Share 101: What is a Beef Share? 

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

In honor of our brick and mortar storefront opening we are wanting everyone who is not near our local store to be a part of buying our ranch raised beef!

So, to be sure everyone is totally ready for Beef Share Day, I want to lay out everything you need to know - starting with the very basics

What is a Beef Share?

A Beef Share is literally your chance to reserve a guaranteed share of one of our ranch raised beef that has been perfected between Brands that have been raising cattle for generations!

You place a deposit for the size share that fits your family (see the options below), and receive your beef after our big harvest in the late spring (spring beef is ready in June and July).

We only sell as many shares as we are absolutely sure we can fulfill. So once you place your deposit, you can rest easy knowing that your beef supply will be ready in a couple of months.

What do you get in your share?

You get to choose what portion of a cow you need to feed your family.

We offer 4 standard sizes:

  • ⅛ Share (55 lbs) - A great way to get started, or for singles/couples who don't cook all the time

  • ¼ Share (115 lbs) - The BEST SELLER every single season. Seems to be just the right size for an average family.

  • ½ Share (230 lbs) - Perfect for larger families, or families that cook a lot.

  • Whole Beef Share (420 lbs) - Huge family, multiple hungry teenagers, or love to entertain? This is for you

No matter the size you choose, your share is going to be roughly 30% steaks, 30% savory cuts (that includes stuff like roasts, stew meat, short ribs) and 40% ground beef.

My next email is going to get into all the details of each share, but you can get ahead of the crowd by clicking any of the shares above to read in detail.

Or you can CLICK HERE to browse all the options on our website.

Why do we only sell beef like this?

This is a common, and really good, question.

I'm actually going to devote a whole email to the benefits of the Beef Share lifestyle, but here are the top 5 reasons we are all in on bulk Beef Shares...

  • Allows us to provide the BEST beef possible. We harvest, pack and ship right at the peak grass seasons of the year, instead of shipping beef year round like an industrial farm.

  • We are a small farm with a team of 4. Focusing on Beef Shares allows us to serve fewer customers better, and still have time to run the ranch and produce the best beef possible.

  • Selling shares means the whole cow gets honored and utilized in nourishing families, and makes sure everyone gets their fair share of the premium cuts.

  • Even when we used to offer smaller sizes, the bulk Beef Shares were always our best seller, because...

  • A freezer full of a grass-fed, grain-finished beef share offers customers peace of mind through food security, flexibility with what to cook for dinner, a constant source of quick nutritious meals (thank you ground beef), and a connection to their rancher that can't be matched

That's it for today.​ Leading up to the big day (Monday April 24th) I will be in touch with a few more emails explaining:

  1. Exactly how the Beef Share process works (from placing a deposit to getting your beef) and

  2. Feedback from last year’s share members, about why they love the Beef Share program.

  3. How to share beef with a friend and save money

  4. Bonuses and giveaways for the first customers to reserve

And then on April 24th at 7am you can reserve your beef.

Have a good one,

Branded Meat Market
