Congrats! By sharing a whole beef together everyone can save up to $85 per box (each box is an 1/8 beef - 50 lbs). Each person can reserve as much of the whole cow as they want at the whole cow price, which is our best price available. This beef is some of the best beef you can find in the Country! In fact, many of our customers tell us this IS the BEST beef they've ever had!  All beef is dry-aged for 14 days and vacuum sealed to give you the most flavorful, delicious, nutrient dense beef.

Our Light Grain Finished cattle are finished using my grandfather's preferred method. My grandpa was a butcher and saw thousands of animals go across the line. He taught us how to carefully finish cattle with light grain rations in the last weeks before harvest. These cattle are still out on pasture the entire time, enjoying wide open pastures and fresh mountain streams. They just simply get a small poundage of grain added into their daily diet to supplement the natural forage they are eating. We do not use any added chemicals to our ground - all natural fertilizer (manure from the livestock! - the best fertilizer) and natural means of weed control (me digging up weeds by hand and the goats helping me eat them down!). We raise our own hay right here on the ranch, which is all chemical free as well. 

Here is How It Works:  The whole cow is broken up into eight 50 lb boxes (which equals an eighth beef per box). Each box has a 35% deposit with the final amount due October 31st. Beef starts shipping out in November. Here is a key for how much each box equals with totals. The final amount due  will have the deposit deducted. 

1 Box = Eighth Beef from $748.44

2 Boxes = Quarter Beef from $1,496.88

4 Boxes = Half Beef from $2,993.76

8 Boxes - Whole Beef from $5,987.52

For an exact breakdown of what's in each box, please scroll down. 

Please have all 8 boxes of your whole cow reserved by September 30th.

100% Grass-fed or Light Grain Finish - Your Choice

Our cattle are grass-fed and pasture raised throughout their entire life. You can choose between a 100% grass finish or a light grain finish option. The cattle remain on pasture during the graining, but receive a low poundage of daily grain in addition to the forage they are eating. My grandfather was a butcher who saw thousands of animals go across the line, and this was his preferred way to finish an animal. To me, I really like the increased flavor that the grain gives, along with the tenderness, juiciness, and flavor. The marbling of the animal really changes in those weeks of grain before harvest and, in my opinion, that translates into the quality of the meat that you eat. As the animal stays on primarily forage the whole time (small amounts of grain), it retains most of the same health benefits that you see in grass-finished versus grain-finished cattle. We are proud to be able to offer both the grass finished and the grain finished options so you can choose what the best fit for your family is!

  • "They say it takes a village, ours includes a rancher in Montana now. When my wife said she found where we were ordering our 1/4 cow from, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m glad to say that the beef tastes better than any other that we’ve purchased AND we received a relationship with Anna that we look forward to continuing. When my daughters saw the picture of the cattle and heard the thoughtful note she wrote on the back, it became clear that we stumbled upon much more than a meat salesman. We found someone who deeply cares about the cows and the families they nourish. Beauty and the Beef for life!"

    Ron, CA

  • "The best beef I’ve ever had! I have been looking for a company like Beauty and the Beef for a long time. Anna is absolutely the sweetest and the love and care she puts into her cows is evident in the end product. The cows are cared for every step of the way and the beef tastes like nothing I’ve ever had before- and I’m super picky about my beef. And you can’t beat knowing your rancher! Our girls even thank Anna for raising our cows at dinner. "

    Trisha, CA

  • "Beauty and the Beef delivers on quality, taste, and excellence. I never realized how much I shorted myself by purchasing beef from the grocery store, sacrificing quality for quantity. Once my family had a taste of Beauty and the Beef we immediately noticed the difference in texture, taste, and the health benefits in the way our bodies processed it. Beauty and the Beef takes the cake on the finest beef around. We are hooked and incredibly amazed!!" Linna, WA

What are the health benefits of your meat?

At Beauty and the Beef, we know that the quality and the nutrition of our food starts long before it hits our plate. Healthy animals make healthy food. Meat from pasture-raised animals is significantly higher in omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E, beta-carotene, and folic acid. They also have less saturated fat and cholesterol. You will not only taste the difference of our beef, but also FEEL the difference!

Is your beef pasture raised?

Yes! Our cattle live their entire life in our big, open pastures under the Big Sky of Montana.

Are your cattle raised in a feedlot?

Definitely not. We value the quality of life for our cattle and believe in keeping them in our pastures their whole life.

What do Beauty and Beef's cattle eat?

After the babies are weaned off their mommas, our cattle graze on both the Montana Mountain ground and the beautiful rolling valley ground. They graze on grasses and other nutritious forage that they naturally choose. This diet helps our cattle thrive without medications.

In the winter time we get enough snow covering that we have to feed hay, which we grow and harvest right here on our ranch. Our cattle get free choice salt and mineral year round.

We offer a 100% grass fed, grass finished option. This is where the cattle only ever eat natural forage in the form of fresh grass and the chemical-free hay raised here on our ranch.

We also offer a light grain (Montana sourced grain, as we also believe in supporting local!) finish on our cattle during the last weeks of their life. They are still in the pastures and grazing, just being supplemented
with a bit of grain. This really makes a difference in the flavor, juiciness, and tenderness of the beef while retaining the benefits of being grass-fed!

What breed of cattle do you raise?

We raise both black and red angus cattle. Our momma cows are
hearty, of the fat and happy variety! The bulls we buy are raised in this same valley by a neighboring
rancher. They are very high quality red angus bulls with superior genetics that make them very muscly (meat is muscle, so this is important!) and lots of eye appeal!

Is your ranch sustainable and regenerative?

You bet it is! This is the same land that my grandparents ranched on. My parents and I, still ranching together today, focus on many of the same things that my grandparents taught us. Soil health is of the upmost importance, after all, if we have great soil then we can grow nutrient rich grass to graze our cattle on. We focus on building our soil health naturally, so no added chemicals or fertilizers. We practice rotational grazing to keep our cattle on lush pastures during
the grazing season and to give our soil/grass time to rebuild and rest. Our goal is to improve this land
and have a sustainable ranch for years to come.

Where are your animals processed?

We process all of our meat at a USDA inspected facility. I have carefully vetted who we will send our cattle to as it is of the upmost importance to me that they are harvested humanely. I have toured the facility, observed the slaughtering process, and had the pleasure of meeting the entire staff. I am happy to report that we have found a top notch facility that we can trust in handling our cattle and processing our beef.

Is your beef dry aged?

Oh yes, for at least 14 days! Our butchers do a phenomenal job of dry aging. This really enhances the flavor and the tenderness of our beef. You'll taste the difference!

* We do add shipping to Alaska and Hawaii due to the high cost of shipping to these states. We also cannot reach remote villages/islands. If shipping to main hubs such as Anchorage or Honolulu, we can reach you with 2 day shipping.

How do you keep your beef frozen during shipping?

We carefully package each box of meat with the best liners on the market. (environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable material) We use dry ice, and at times gel ice packs, to ensure our meat arrives frozen to your doorstep.

What if I am not home when my box arrives?

We will coordinate to be sure that you will be home on shipment day. We will pack enough ice in your boxes to ensure that the meat is frozen when it arrives and it will stay frozen as long as you are able to be there that same day to unload into your freezer.

Yes, we do! We want to be sure you are 100% satisfied with
