Our 2018 Grassfed/Grassfinished Beef Season has ended

Thank you all for your support this season!  We have sold all our available half and whole beeves.  Look for our Audubon-certified Bird Friendly Beef in packaged format in the next month at Skarsgard Farms.  (Note: it will say Ranney Ranch Grassfed if it is ours.)

What we offer:

We offer half and whole beeves. Our prices this season, including processing and packaging, are $985 for a half beef and $1895 for a whole beef.  These prices include processing at Mathews Meats in Belen, N.M. or at Fort Sumner Processing in Fort Sumner, N.M.  These prices do not include shipping which is only available from Fort Sumner.  Shipping costs vary depending on location and will be calculated at the processor. To give you an idea of the cost, shipping to Albuquerque works out to approximately $1/lb.    

All beef is available from October to January, but we encourage you to order in advance as the early dates go fast. To reserve your beef, we ask that you send a deposit of $250 for a half beef or $450 for a whole beef.

If you are not sure if a half or whole beef is right for you or your family and you are in New Mexico, you may order select cuts from Skarsgard Farms.

How do I order?

You can order using the form below when beef is available! You can opt to pay by check, or you can pay by credit card via the form below. If you choose to pay with a credit card, you will be charged a 3% cost to cover processing fees.

How will I get my beef?

You are responsible for picking up your beef or paying for shipping (shipping is an additional cost).  Customers electing to ship their beef via FedEx Express will have their beef processed in Fort Sumner.

  1. You may opt to process with Mathew’s Meats in Belen. You will need to pick up your beef at the facility.
  2.  You may opt to process with Darrin Burns in Fort Sumner.  You can pick up your beef or he will ship the beef via FedEx Express, an additional cost beyond the price of the beef.
  3. If you order select cuts through Skarsgard Farms, they will deliver throughout much of New Mexico and the cost of delivery is included.

How much space will my order take?

You will need 3 – 5 cubic feet of freezer space for a half beef. This is the size of the entire freezer compartment of a side-by-side refrigerator. Many customers invest in a small chest freezer and find it wonderful to have extra storage for storing garden or farmers market produce as well.

How much beef will I get?

The average beef, after it has been processed, weighs approximately 225-240 pounds.

How much will it cost per pound?

A half beef will cost approximately $8.20/lb overall; a whole beef will cost approximately $7.90/lb overall.

What cuts will I receive?

After two weeks dry-ageing, both processors will cut and package the beef to your specifications. At the Ranney Ranch we like to eat the “Rancher’s Pack” but if you would like to custom order your own cuts, you may do so at no extra charge.
