Buying In Bulk

We always want you to get the best Price per Pound when purchasing our 100% Grassfed Beef/Lamb and Pasture Raised Pork, and the easiest way for you to do this is to buy in bulk! We have many different bulk options; Whole Cow, Half Cow, Quarter Cow, Whole Pig, Half Pig and Whole Lamb. When you buy in bulk, you get a large quanitity of meat that you can store in your freezer to be prepared for many meals to come. Not sure if buying in bulk right for you? We have a useful chart below so you can estimate what size bulk might be right for you and your family. If you’re not ready to jump into bulk purchasing, you might want to take a look at our bundles. Our bundles are still larger quanitites of meat, but are not nearly the amount you would get in a bulk order. We have special bundles that include almost half of what you would get for the smallest size bulk order available for that specific animal, which are perfect for dipping your toes into bulk ordering.

Worried about the price committment, and quantity of meat you’ll receive with a bulk order? We also encourage what we call “cowpooling,” which basically means you could split a bulk order with one or more people! This would drastically reduce your cost, and you would have less meat to deal with in the end. We also know that receiving and trying to actually make large quantities of meat is sometimes overwhelming, so we’ve created the Meat to Meals: Quarter Cow ebook, which you get for FREE when you order a Quarter Cow Bulk (or higher quantity Cow bulk)! You can also purchase this ebook without purchasing a bulk order if you’re looking for some great recipes that deal with almost every cut you can think of from a cow. This ebook has over 40 recipes that deal with EVERY cut of meat you get from your Quarter Cow bulk. The ebook also includes cutting instructions (which on its own can be confusing), freezer labels for each recipe and a customizable grocery list. We are currently creating a Meat to Meals: Half Pig ebook, so be on the lookout for that! 

Still have questions about buying in bulk? We’ve created a great Frequently Asked Questions blog post about buying in bulk, so check it out and if you still have questions feel free to leave a comment on the blog post with your question, or reach out to us via email or phone and we are happy to help. 

 

How    To  Purchase Bulk : Costs Savings As Easy As 1-2-3

  1. Choose your bulk option and place your deposit from our convenient online store.
  2. Once your deposit is received, you will receive an email with a link to an online form that allows you to choose your cuts and provides the butcher with your fully customized processing instructions (i.e. cuts, thickness, number of cuts per package, etc.)
      • Rather talk to someone? Not a problem! We can put you directly in contact with our butcher.
      • Have questions along the way? Call us, a lot of people do! That’s why we’re here to help.  
      • We have our Meat to Meals: Quarter Cow ebook, which comes with cutting instructions included along with recipes to deal with every one of the cuts you will receive. (Meat to Meals: Half Pig is coming soon!) You will also receive these ebooks free when you purchase a correlating bulk order (ex: Meat to Meals: Quarter Cow is free when you purchase 1/4 Cow Bulk or more).
  3.  Wait to hear from Together Farms to schedule a home delivery date or pickup time. We will pick the meat up from the butcher and then get it to you either on the food route (free delivery if you are on our food route), you can pick it up right on the farm, or we can ship your order to you. Unless you live closer to Conrath Quality Meats in Conrath, WI and then you are welcome to pick up directly from them too.
    • Beef is dry aged to help tenderize and concentrate the flavor of the meat. Cutting, packaging and freezing takes another 2-3 days, so your beef order will be ready for pickup about two weeks after the date the animal went in. If jerky or smoking is being done to any of your product (typical with pork) it will take about a month before it is all done. Since the butcher is about 1 ½ hours from the farm we try to be efficient with our driving and like to wait until all the meat is done before we pick it up or wait until our next batch of animals is going in so we are going both ways “loaded”.
  4. Your payment in full is due upon pickup/delivery of your order, and your initial deposit goes towards your total payment.

 

 

What Size Bulk Should You Get?

Quarter Beef = Recommended for families (or equivalent) of 1-2 adults with 1-2 kids. 

Half Beef = Recommended for families (or equivalent) of 2 adults and 2 kids.

General Bulk Pricing

To place a deposit and reserve your bulk meat order, visit the Together Farms online store! We have a limited number of animals available at each butchering date so don’t wait too long to reserve your meat.

Beef

  • Whole ($3.95/lb) = best Bulk Beef deal averaging ~650lbs x $3.95 = ~$2567.50 (every cow is different, so final pounds and price may vary).
  • Half ($4.50/lb) = averages ~330lbs x $4.50/lb = ~$1,485.00 (every cow is different, so final pounds and price may vary).
  • Quarter ($4.75/lb) = averages ~165lbs x $4.75/lb = ~$783.75 (every cow is different, so final pounds and price may vary). 
    • Note: We do encourage “cowpooling” if you can find someone (or multiple people) to split a whole bulk with you to get the best price! So if you were considering getting a half or a quarter but would like to get the lowest whole pricing, perhaps you can find someone (or multiple people) to go in with you?

Pork

  • Whole ($3.50/lb) = best Bulk Pork deal averaging ~240lbs x $3.50 = ~$840 (every pig is different, so final pounds and price may vary).
