If you have a chest freezer, and tend to enjoy a juicy & delicious beef meal once or twice a week, then your most economical option is to order a side or half-side of Whispering Meadows beef — naturally!
A side of beef lasts approximately 12 months for a family of five eating a beef meal two to three times a week. On average, a side is around 340lbs of beef, and a half-side is about 170lbs, hanging hot dressed weight.
“Awesome! You already know how much we love your beef!”

Your side/half-side will be custom cut to your specifications and packaged as individual cuts, wrapped in traditional butcher paper, stamp labelled and frozen.. Ordering a side or half-side allows you the opportunity to specify exactly how you want your Whispering Meadows beef to be cut and wrapped. For example you can select the loin to be cut as juicy bone-in T-bone steaks or opt to have it cut into tender and tasty striploin and tenderloin steaks (the “boneless” loin option). The round area of the animal, as another example, has the flexibilty to be packaged as fast-fry cutlets or round roasts or round steaks or some of all these options. These and so many other delicious cut options are available from a side/half-side and we will help you make the best cut selections for your family when your Whispering Meadows personalized cut preference sheet is completed just before your beef is cut.
We price our sides of beef at $5.95 per pound, dressed weight. That’s an amazing price for natural beef!
A note about dressed weight
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.
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 hangng hot dressed weight of your animal’s side/half-side.
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!
