HOW IT WORKS FOR 1/8s, 1/4s, 1/2s and Wholes:
- Getting an 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 or Whole Grass Fed Beef from Flying B Bar Ranch
Ordering from Flying B Bar Ranch is like having your own personal butcher. Buying direct from your local rancher at the Flying B can be as small as an eighth beef that will fit into your home refrigerator/freezer or go bigger for your best value with a half or whole beef, those let you custom cut and wrap to your specifications.
The Standard Cut
Our eighths and quarters are cut and packaged with our “standard cut”. Our “standard cut” is the result of years of working with customers to determine the types of cuts everyone likes, and expects from a beef package.
Our standard cut is so popular that many of our custom cut packages, our halves and wholes, go that route too. But if you have specific requests all of our Half beef and whole beef orders include custom cutting, that’s where you get to tell us exactly what you want, how thick, how many per package, etc.. And we will hold your hand, at least virtually, on the phone, to walk you through the process of filling out your personalized “cut sheet” instructions. It’s easier than you think, and you’ll learn a bunch about where different types of meat come from and the types of meals that you can prepare.
To help make your order simple, get to know the beef chart and see the cuts included in our “Standard Cut”. Again, this is for 1/8 and 1/4 buyers, if you order a 1/2 or whole the “standard cut” is just a suggested starting point, how you wait it cut and wrapped is up to you, with our able assistance of course, whenever you need it.
How to order a Flying B Bar Grass Fed Beef package from the ranch:
Place & Purchase Your Order
The first step is to go to the store and leave a deposit for the size cut you want
We'll Reach Out
We will stay in touch on timing for the processing of your beef. We slaughter 4 or 5 times a year, more often between November and July than between July and November.
Pick Up Date
Once the slaughter date is selected, we will schedule a weekend in advance for pick up. Don’t worry we are less than an hour from most places in Denver, and literally 15 miles East of DIA, closer than you think! Yes, that’s what local looks like!
First Come, First Serve
When you come out to pick up your beef, if you have an 1/8 or 1/4 we usually have a pretty good selection of small, medium and large eighths and quarters to pick from. Remember, the animals vary in size, and so does an 1/8 of that animal. Customers who pick up sooner on that weekend have a bigger selection of sizes to pick from if you have a preference, but also the weights only tend to vary about 10-15% either way of the average. Remember, you are paying by hanging weight so you will always get what you pay for.
Half and Whole beef customers can pay by credit card or PayPal invoice that we send in advance, when we know the hanging weight of your animal, or you can pay by credit card swipe when you get to the ranch. Final payments for your beef cost and butcher/processing fees, less your deposit are due when you pick up your beef, and we only take credit cards.
