Grass Fed Beef Price

Is this a pretty good price for local grass fed beef? It gets a little cheaper as the sizes go up, but my girlfriend and I are the only people that live in my house so we would be the only people eating out of this. Not sure how long it would take us to finish off a "pack" but freezer space is of some concern. Thanks.

1/10th Share "Freezer Pack" ($7.00/lb with a $25 deposit):
Freezer Packs weigh 40-50 lbs, fits in a medium ice chest, and takes up over half of an average household freezer. Great for families or to split with friends and neighbors. Packs (pictured right) are not identical and on average contain:

1 package of Filet & 2 sirloin steaks
2 rib steaks & 2 New York strip steaks
2 packages of short ribs & 2 round roasts
1 chuck eye steak & 1 Cowboy (summer months)
1 chuck roast (1-2 shoulder roasts in winter months)
2-4 packages of fajita strips
2 packages of seasoned beef & 6-10 packages of ground beef
1 package of liver/heart (optional)
1 package of roasting bones (optional)

Re: Grass Fed Beef Price

$7/lbs is not a bad price at all.

Re: Grass Fed Beef Price

Hi Scott,

I don't think it's bad either. After debating it for a while, my wife and I decided to get a side of beef. If you can do that and have a freezer to store the meat it is probably the most economical.

I always go right to the rancher, and for years I've never paid more than $2.50/lb...........packed in paper

I also go straight to the local farmer for the best deal, best quality. Split a beef every year with 4 friends/family. Can't remember the exact price but was between $2.25-$2.50 a pound, cut, wrapped and frozen. The cuts where similar to what you mentioned earlier with the exception being I get a decent amount of burger. The beef is grass fed/free pastured for the most part.

Plus, since the farmer is a good friend of mine, he let me ride my cow once when it was little.
