If you have a chest freezer, and tend to enjoy a delicious beef meal a few times a week, then your most economical option is to order a side or half-side of Whispering Meadows beef — naturally!
For a family of five who eats a beef meal two to three times a week, a side of beef lasts around a year. On average, a side is around 340lbs of beef, and a half-side is about 170lbs, hanging hot dressed weight.
Have your steaks and roasts cut your way!
Your side or half-side will be custom cut to your specifications. It then gets packaged as individual cuts, each wrapped in traditional butcher paper, stamp labelled and frozen.
Ordering a side or half-side gives you the choice of how much of your beef you would like in steaks, roasts, or ground — and exactly which way you would like them. For example you can have the loin cut as bone-in T-bone steaks, or as tender and tasty striploin and tenderloin steaks (the “boneless” loin option).
“Awesome! You already know how much we love your beef!”

The round area of the animal, as another example, has the flexibilty to be packaged as fast-fry cutlets, round roasts or round steaks, or a mix of these options.
Many other delicious cut options are available, and we will help you make the best cut selections for your family. We have a personalized cut preference sheet that we can walk you through before your beef is cut.
A note about dressed weight
We price our sides of beef at $5.95 per pound, dressed weight. That’s an amazing price for natural beef!
Like all beef producers, we sell our beef based on dressed weight. That means the sides are weighed when they are first hung to dry-age, which is called the hot dressed weight.
Over the course of the aging process, the beef loses some of its weight through moisture loss. And then there’s some removal of bones and fat. So the overall cut weight of your beef will be around 60% of the hanging hot dressed weight.
That’s how the beef industry works, and the pricing is set with the expected weight reduction in mind.
Your cut beef will work out to a price of around $9.90 per pound — which is far less than you would pay for much lower quality beef in the supermarket!
