My husband loved the ground beef!

“We tried ground beef and my husband loved it. We can definitely tell a difference compared to what we usually buy. We are hoping to save up and buy a share next year.”
Choryn G.

The best tri-tip I’ve ever had!

“In the past, I’ve been wary of the gamy taste of grass-fed beef. I decided to try Hafen Beef anyway and I’m glad I did! I couldn’t taste any gaminess. Seriously had to be the best tri-tip I’ve ever had in my life. Highly recommend.”

About our Beef Shares

With all of our beef shares, you will only pay for the processed meat you receive. Your initial payment reserves your share. We take payments and deposits several months (3-8) before our cattle are ready to be processed. This allows us to properly manage our cattle herd and pastures for maximum sustainability.

After your beef arrives at our processor, we will invoice you for the balance of your order (if you just paid a deposit) and any shipping charges. Once you have paid the invoice we will ship your order or you can arrange to pick it up. We offer FREE SHIPPING to most of the western United States! See our shipping page, or contact us, for more information.

By reserving your beef share in advance you get the absolute BEST PRICE on FRESH, PREMIUM beef.

Beef shares are the easiest way for us to get you the freshest, grass-fed beef for the lowest possible price.

By committing to purchase a beef share we can better manage our inventory. This means fresher meat for you because we can get it to you days after it’s processed so your meat doesn’t sit in a freezer waiting to be bought.

You also get meat at a lower price because we know what we can sell ahead of time.

Cuts in your beef share will be approximately partitioned as follows:

  • 40% premium ground beef (in 1-pound packages)
  • 30% savory cuts (roasts, ribs, stew meat, etc.)
  • 30% steaks

A single beef can only produce a certain number of each cut. The only way we can guarantee you’ll get a specific cut is if you order a half-beef share. With the half beef, you’ll get all the cuts from one side of one of our cows. You’ll also get the LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICE!

The first customers to order are the first to receive their shares. After you place your order, we’ll contact you directly with more information about when to expect your beef and your preferred delivery method.

Most of our beef shares ship out in October, November, and December. Occasionally, some shares will be ready in August or September.

We ship FREE to Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and New Mexico. Your order will be shipped frozen in boxes that weigh 50-60 pounds each. Boxes are carefully packed with ice packs and shipped with FedEx Express 2-Day shipping to ensure they arrive frozen to your door.

One-eighth of a beef produces about 40-50 pounds of processed meat.

You will need about 2 cubic feet of freezer space to store this meat. It will fit in the freezer attached to your refrigerator (check the specifications to be sure) but will not leave much room for other items.

One-quarter of a beef produces about 85-100 pounds of processed meat.

You will need about 3-4 cubic feet of freezer space to store this meat. A small chest or upright freezer will have enough capacity for your order (be sure to check the specifications).

One-half of a beef produces about 170-200 pounds of processed meat.

You will need about 6-8 cubic feet of freezer space to store this meat. A medium-sized chest or upright freezer should have enough capacity for your order (be sure the check the specifications).

Experience Nature’s Best: Nutrient-Rich, Sustainable Grass-Fed Beef

From Farm to Freezer to You: Enjoy Exceptional Flavor and Eco-Friendly Dining!

Nutrient Dense

High levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and healthy saturated fats give your body premium fuel and bolster against heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses.

Fresh

You will receive your beef just days after it is processed! Our beef is commercially frozen and vacuum-sealed to maximize freshness and longevity.

Flavorful and Tender

Our beef is optimally dry-aged to concentrate flavors and increase tenderness. It also removes water weight (cost savings for you)!

Sustainable

Grass-fed, grass-finished beef supports natural, open, healthy landscapes because grass needs space, water, and good soil to grow. By supporting grass-fed beef you also support land conservation.

No Antibiotics or Added Hormones

We do not give our cattle hormones. They grow naturally on natural foods. Our cows only receive antibiotics if it is absolutely necessary.

No GMOs

In the summer, our cows graze in mountain pastures. In winter months, they roam and forage freely on the range. If they need to be held in corrals they are fed high-quality grass or alfalfa hay.

Ethical

Our beef is naturally grown on our ranch or sourced from producers we trust. You can be assured all our animals are raised with respect and in a manner that promotes land preservation and conservation.

Delivered to You

We understand that it can be hard to get clean, natural food at an affordable price when you don’t live in rural areas. That’s why we arrange shipping or delivery for every purchase!

How it works.

It takes about 18-24 months for grass-fed cattle to reach an optimal harvest weight. A deposit reserves your beef share from our herd.

Each year we inventory the cattle we will have available for harvest and our customers place deposits to reserve a portion of our expected harvest. Throughout the year we maintain the pastures and cattle and keep you in the loop with updates.

Once your reserved share is aging at the processing facility we invoice you for the balance of your order. 

After you pay the invoice we’ll ship your frozen meat (see if you’re in our FREE SHIPPING area) right to your door, or arrange for you to come get it at one of our pick-up locations.

Generally, it will be 3-8 months from when you make your deposit until your beef arrives (depending on availability).

This gives you plenty of time to clean out your freezer (or get a freezer) so you’re ready when your order comes.

Place a deposit to reserve your beef share(s).

Visit our store to place a deposit on a bulk beef order. The deposit guarantees that we’ll have a beef share for you when it’s ready for processing. You can purchase 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2 of a beef (or one of our other packages). If you want more, you can order multiple options or increase the quantity.


Wait for us to grow your beef.

We’ll grow the beef on the grass of our pastures or source grass-fed beef from producers we know and trust. When your beef is ready, we’ll take it to the processor.


Pay the invoice and have the beef shipped to your door.

When your beef is aging we’ll invoice you (based on the weight of the meat you’ll receive) for the balance of your order. Once the invoice is paid, your beef is shipped directly to your door or you can choose to come get it at one of our pick-up locations (we’ll contact you to explain shipping and delivery options).

100% Money Back Guarantee

When we put our brand on it we back it.

Whether it’s raising beef ourselves or sourcing it from the best producers, we put in a lot of work to provide you with the best products from the best sources.

We understand that you’re putting a lot of trust in us when you buy online. We want to return that trust, so if we don’t meet your expectations we’ll make it right.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to questions we get asked all the time. If your question is not answered here, reach out! We’d love to hear from you.

Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. In the summer months, our cattle feed on pasture grasses. In the winter they either eat natural vegetation on winter range or are fed high-quality grass or alfalfa hay. Our cattle are never fed grain.

  • 1/8 beef (~50 lbs): about 2 cubic feet of freezer. This can fit in the freezer that is attached to your fridge, but won’t leave much room for other items.
  • 1/4 beef share (~100 lbs): about 4 cubic feet of freezer space. You’ll need to have a small freezer.
  • 1/2 beef (~200 lbs): about 8 cubic feet of freezer space. You’ll need a medium-sized freezer.
  • Whole beef (~400 lbs): You’ll need a large/full-sized chest or upright freezer.

Your meat will be packed in insulated containers that are inside cardboard boxes. We include plenty of dry ice so your meat will stay frozen for a few hours if you are not home.

We will let you know your order is being sent before it is shipped so that it doesn’t arrive on a day that you are not close to home.

We have a 100% shipping guarantee and insure all of our orders. Your order will be fully replaced or reimbursed if it does not arrive safely.

Our beef is 100% natural. You’re getting pure beef with nothing added.

We raise our beef using ethical and sustainable practices. We do not have (or even try to get) specific certifications because they do not equate to sustainable food products and management practices. Maintaining certifications also creates additional costs that are passed onto our customers.
