If you're someone who wants to try new cuts of beef, has a big freezer (or lots of friends) and likes to save with bulk purchases, purchasing a Forehalf or Forequarter will save 5-10% off the retail prices and introduce you to the full range of cuts and flavors on the steer. Bulk beef purchases may not be made with regular promotional coupons, sales or special offers.

You can purchase a Forehalf (the front half of the cow, that is, the kosher half) or a Forequarter (half of a Forehalf).

One Forehalf includes the following (divide amounts in half for a Forequarter):


    • CHOOSE: Hanger Steak or Demi-Hanger Steaks (~3lbs)
    • 4 Skirt Steaks (~2lbs)
    • CHOOSE: 14-16 1.25" Rib Steaks or 8 2" Rib-steaks or 1 Standing or Regular for Rib Roast (~15-16 lbs)
    • CHOOSE: 14-16 Chuck Steaks or Chuck-eye Roast (~8lbs)
    • 2 Chuck Pot Roast (~3-4lbs)
    • CHOOSE: English Short Ribs or Flanken (~8-12lbs)
    • CHOOSE: 3-Bone Short Ribs or Spare Ribs or Plate Flanken (~8-12lbs)
    • CHOOSE: 2 French Roast or Denver Steaks (~4-7lbs) 
    • CHOOSE: 2 Whole Brisket or 1 each of the 1st and 2nd Cut Briskets (~7-8lbs)
    • CHOOSE: Minute London Broil, Minute Roast, or Minute Steaks (~4-6lbs)
    • 2 London Broil (~4lb)
    • CHOOSE: Shoulder Steak or Roast or Pepper Steak or Cubes for Kabob or Sandwich Steak (~10-12lb)
    • Beef Cheeks (~4lbs)
    • CHOOSE: ~20 lbs Stew Beef or Chulent Meat
    • CHOOSE: ~50 lbs Ground Beef or Lean Ground Beef
    • CHOOSE: Cross-cut or Boat Cut Marrow Bones (~5-6lbs)
    • ~1 Box Beefy Bones (~4-6lbs)

A Forehalf will run approximately between $3500 - $4500, depending on the exact weights and the mix of cuts. A Forequarter will be approximately half that. Payment is due when your order ships. Any substitutes other than those listed above may affect the total price.  

A Forehalf includes approximately 175-200 lbs of meat, and will take up about 10 cubic feet of freezer space. A Forequarter is half that amount.

Packs & Weights

Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.

These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).

Example: Lamb Chops

Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:

You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.

You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.

Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.

You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).

Weight Ranges & Prices

To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.

This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:

less than 0.99lb 0.05lb
1lb - 2.19lb 0.1lb
2.2lb - 2.74lb 0.30lb
2.75lb - 10.24lb 0.25lb
10.25lb - 19.99lb 0.5lb
over 20lbs 1lb
