Everything You Need To Know About Bulk Beef & Bison Boxes
If you love having your freezer stocked with meat, we’ve got you covered with the best way to stay well fed over the next few months. A beef bulk box and bison bulk box is equivalent to about half of the meat from the entire animal, also known as a side of beef or side of bison. We also offer a half order of this amount, the equivalent of a quarter of beef or quarter of bison. Through our experience with servicing restaurant chefs, we’ve determined what the very best cuts are to make the most out of butchering bison and beef. These are our tried and true cuts that we’ve found to be the most convenient for cooking, the tastiest, and creating the least amount of waste possible. However, if you have special requests, simply let us know.
You can easily store this amount of meat in most chest or upright freezers. Getting this amount of meat at once has tons of benefits. It’s a great feeling to know that you are stocked on meat for the entire family for the foreseeable future. It simplifies grocery shopping and really helps to add another element of interest for cooking and meal planning. Once I had a side of beef to work with in my freezer for the first time, I found myself experimenting with cooking meat in ways that I had never branched out to before. Every cut comes vacuum sealed and flash frozen at the peak of freshness, clearly labeled for easy storage.
Which Cuts Come In A Bulk Box?
Let’s start with the sub primal roasts. If you’re not familiar with cuts of meat, the butcher begins the process by dividing the meat into primals. These large cuts are then divided into subprimals, which can be roasted whole or divided into individual cuts of meat that are what we typically purchase for cooking or order at a restaurant. These bulk boxes of beef or bison include a tenderloin roast, a boneless ribeye roast and a New York strip roast. These premium subprimals can be cut into steaks, including the filet mignon, New York strip steak and boneless ribeye steak. Roasted whole, they make an impressive and mouthwatering meal that everyone will remember.
You’ll receive about twelve pounds of short ribs, six pounds of brisket, twelve pounds of osso buco and twenty pounds of stew meat. These are your slow cooker items that will be flavorful and incredibly tender when cooked low and slow. Perfect for stews, Instant Pot dishes, smokers, braising and more. We are always happy to help with cooking recommendations and recipes, so don’t hesitate to reach out to our team if you have questions about how to prepare a cut of meat. Personally, these are some of my favorite cuts to cook as they are so simple to prepare and yield such delicious and satisfying meals.
You will receive eighty pounds of ground meat with your order, one of the most versatile and convenient items to have in your freezer, along with 30-35 pounds of other ground meat products such as burger patties and bratwursts. Last but certainly not least, you’ll receive approximately thirty pounds of broth bones. An indispensable kitchen staple for making broth for drinking and cooking purposes. Upon request, the items in your bulk box can be customized, to include organ meats, larger amounts of favorite items, etc.
Again, these bulk boxes are also available in a half size equivalent to a bison or beef quarter. These boxes are by far our best value for stocking up on meat, and with our hand picked selections and options for customization you’re guaranteed to get your favorite cuts that you’ll enjoy the most for yourself and your family.

It’s easy to stay consistent when you have an abundance of cuts to constantly switch things up and always know there’s something wonderful to cook up for dinner.
Free Range Bison, Raised The Way Nature Intended
Our bison live free range on 20,000 beautiful acres here in New Mexico, or roam freely on our carefully selected partner ranches. They are pasture raised and never administered any amount of hormones, steroids or antibiotics. These are powerful, strong animals that live essentially wild with minimal handling. There were once 60 million bison roaming North America, and we hope to see their numbers increase back to even 1 million during our lifetime. By increasing the demand for ethically sourced bison meat, we can help to bolster their population. The more people that want to purchase this nourishing and nutrient dense meat, the more farmers will be encouraged to raise bison. This directly helps to increase the number of herds which assists in providing genetic diversity for the population.
American Wagyu Beef Raised In New Mexico
Our American Wagyu beef is raised on the same ranch as our bison here in New Mexico. These cows are part Angus, part Wagyu and live free range roaming the same land as the buffalo. They eat mainly grass and have high quality grain available to them. These cows live essentially wild on this land covered in rolling hills with trees and a river, surrounded by the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This beef is especially marbled and flavorful, offering incredible nutrition, taste and texture.
