    The convenience of our Quarter Beef package will give you and your family great Perennial Pastures Ranch beef throughout the year with a wide variety of cuts! By purchasing our beef in bulk we do all the hard work for you. Our expert butcher makes sure you receive the best selection direct to your doorstep!

    Buying bulk beef can be overwhelming. We take out all the guesswork for you. Our very own staff butcher works with our USDA processor to cut and pack your order.  What is delivered to your door is the very best that each animal has to offer - from nose to tail!

    What you get (125 lbs of product total): With the purchase of this package, you can expect the following approximate breakdown:

    • 15 roasts & cuts (an assortment of round roasts, chuck roasts, cross-cut shank, tri-tip, etc.)
    • 20 steaks (an assortment of top sirloin, new york, rib-eye, filet mignon, picanha, etc.)
    • 60 lbs of ground beef
    • beef tallow, liver, heart, oxtail, kidneys, spleen, and tongue are available as add-ons at special bulk beef pricing. (You can give us a call when ordering to speak directly with the rancher and discuss what parts of the animal we can get you!)

    With this USDA-inspected and finely butchered product, all the work is already done for you. You receive the beef delivered to your door. Our packaging is all vacuum sealed with clear plastic, and fully labeled so you know exactly what you're pulling out of the freezer to thaw! 

    Storage: You will need close to 4-5 cubic feet of freezer space for a quarter beef. For reference, a normal kitchen freezer is about 5-6 cubic feet (less if you have an ice maker).  We recommend getting a deep freezer that does not automatically defrost, as this feature can shorten the overall shelf-life of the beef.

    How to pay: Your order here online is the deposit for your quarter beef. The remaining balance of $875 will be due upon delivery. 

    When do I get my beef? Delivery usually takes about 3-4 months from the time of deposit. The longer lead times are dependent on when the animals are ready to harvest. We will be in touch with an estimated date of delivery.

    ---------------------------------

    Refund Policy  

    All deposits are non-refundable. It’s important to understand that by reserving your share of our herd your deposit is used to plan the buying, raising, and processing of your cow for you. We appreciate your understanding of this and advise that deposits can be transferred to another person if needed. Thank you for trusting us to raise your beef.

    Regenerative grazing

    We mimic nature with our grazing and move cows frequently from paddock to paddock, so we don’t over graze or over rest certain areas of the ranch. We try to graze at the highest densities possible for the shortest amount of time possible and allow for recoveries up to a year long.

    No grain

    Cows did not evolve to live on grain. Grain requires a completely different set of enzymes for digestion and a completely different digestive process to unlock the nutrients contained inside the grain.

    No chemicals

    We don’t use any pesticides or herbicides on our pastures. Both pesticides and herbicides have been shown to kill soil life.

    No tillage

    We do not till any of our land to plant crops or have improved pastures. Tillage destroys soil structure and oxidizes organic matter.

    Individually graded beef

    We work closely with our processors to individually select only the highest quality beef from the best animals. We are also working on our breeding program, introducing breeds like the Corriente and Mashona to create a custom animal that finishes well on grass and is adapted to the mediterranean climate.

    Animal welfare

    We practice ""Bud Williams"" style low stress livestock handling techniques on the ranch. We don’t use cattle prods and we minimize yelling and quick movements which stress cows out.

    When do I get my beef?

    Delivery usually takes about 3-4 months from the time of deposit. The longer lead times are dependent on when the animals are ready to harvest. We will be in touch with an estimated date of delivery.

    great beef

    This was my first time purchasing a bulk beef order and it couldn't have gone any smoother! All three people I had contact with were friendly, helpful and organized. They kept me informed each step of the way from order, slaughter, packaging and delivery. The beef tastes great and the ancestral ground beef was a delicious option!

    delicious meat

    We've already cooked 2 roasts and ribs from our half a cow order. Everything has tasted delicious! We are experimenting with different ways of cooking and seasoning. Very happy with the order and the delivery. Matt kept in touch and coordinated the meet up in AZ. Grateful for all involved in the raising, butchering and delivery of grass fed/grass finished beef! We appreciate regenerative farming!! Keep up the good work!!

    Kathy S.

    excellent!!!

    The Perennial Pastures team was fantastic. This was my first-time ordering a half cow. I was little intimated & had a lot of questions. But,the PP Team answered all my questions, made the purchase & delivery simple & easy. Brian was the team member that did the actual delivery & he was friendly & especially kind to my 9 year old son that was curious about the meats. Brian answered all his questions. Very cool.

    We have the utmost respect for our animals. We provide food, water, shelter against elements and employ low stress management techniques pioneered by Temple Grandin and Bud Williams. The animals move at their own pace, and our team circulates the cattle silently, no whistling, yelling or whip cracking while listening for vocalization of the cows to monitor stress. We go above and beyond to keep them happy!

    FAQ

    This is highly dependent on if there are kids and adults. And if the consumer is animal-based, carnivore or eats more moderate servings of meat. Also, will you be serving this meat to guests frequently?

    i. 1/8 share for single or couple household: 3-4 months

    ii. Quarter share for single/couple/small family: 4-6 months

    iii. Half Cow share for family: 7-9 months

    iv. Whole Cow for family: 9-12months

    • Eighth = 2-3 cubic feet
    • Quarter = 4-5 cubic feet
    • Half = 7-8 cubic feet
    • Whole = 15-16 cubic feet

    All of our beef is processed in a USDA processing facility and vacuum sealed. We process and butcher the beef into smaller cuts, roasts, steaks and ground all individually packaged for you so it’s easy to prepare.

    All of our meat is either dry or wet aged, and comes frozen which ensures maximum freshness once you thaw it out to consume.

    Frozen meat is the best way to ensure maximal freshness and will last you a long time. This allows you to buy high-quality meat at an affordable price and stay stocked up for a longer time period.

    We don't currently have a weekly or bi-weekly slaughter which is what’s required for a “fresh” (non-frozen) program. We are working towards getting our own USDA compliant slaughter facility on site which would allow us to do this.

    Indefinitely according to food safety guidelines, which means frozen meat will last for a very long time in the freezer - but for maximal freshness, best flavor and texture, we recommend using it within 1 year.

    We value the ancestral way of eating and honoring all parts of the animal. A large majority of the animal carcass is beef roasts from the different primals. Ground beef is made from all the trimmings from the animal which is also the majority of the animal carcass.

    • Crock Pot is the easiest way to go. You can buy a crock pot starting from just $20. Depending on the size of a roast, you can cook it on low for 6-10 hours for a nice tender roast.
    • Instant Pots are great options for slow cooking which is usually a bit faster than crock pots because of the pressure cooking.
    • Oven Baking for roast beef. Low and slow for several hours.
    • Smokers for low and slow bbq style meat. You can prepare a roast similar to a Brisket.

    Our approach to eating and lifestyle is ancestral and nose-to-tail which means we honor all parts of the animal, and consume what we can. Nose-to-tail eating also offers us a variety of nutrients.

    There’s simply not enough steaks on one animal carcass for people to be able to choose all steaks. Utilizing all parts of the animal in a cow share is the most sustainable, ethical and cost effective approach.

    A large majority of our beef comes from San Diego. We also have a partner ranch in Opheim, Montana (North of Nowhere ranch) and a partner ranch in Fort Stockton, West Texas.

    Both partner ranches have maintained cattle that are 100% grass-fed, finished and pasture-raised. Kevin Muno is working with the ranch managers/owners of the partner ranches to move towards more regenerative management practices.

    In San Diego, we've got 2 ranches - one 8,000 acre ranch out in Fallbrook and the other 8,000 acre ranch (our main home ranch) in Warner Springs where we host our ranch tours (and where our herd is most of the time.) We move our cattle between both the Warner Springs and Fallbrook ranches in San Diego.

    We fully manage our Warner Springs ranch and follow a regenerative approach to agriculture here.

    Our logo says Humanely Raised.

    “Humanely Raised” is different from “Humanely Slaughtered.”

    Our cattle are Humanely Raised out on pastures.

    We provide food, water, shelter/protection against elements (more for Montana & Texas where animals can get very hot or cold and need shade and shelter.)

    We employ Temple Grandin’s low stress management practices during transportation and slaughter of animals. Temple Grandin works with feedlots & slaughterhouses and pioneered low-stress techniques.

    Low-Stress Management Techniques:

    • Vocalization standard as indicator of stress. (An animal making noise if stressed.)
    • Animals are moving on their own. No abuse/physical means to move the animals.
    • Humane stunning methods - Bolt to their head, stunning the animal, not killing it (so the animal is brain dead). The animal is killed once they bleed it out. Animal is rendered senseless before killing so the animal doesn’t carry stress when bleeding out.

    Primarily Angus. We have a composite breeding program at our San Diego Ranch where we are working towards a cross between Angus, Corriente & Mashona with the goal of creating the optimal breed that’s resilient in Southern California climate, with a great yield for meat.

    Our Montana and West Texas ranches are all Angus breeds.

    Our animals are hormone + steroid free. They are also MRNA free.

    Our San Diego herd is completely vaccine free. We are transitioning our other partner ranches to move in the direction of being 100% vaccine free.

    24-36 months (2-3 years)

    Yes, we currently use ShopPay which allows you to get some cow shares on a payment plan for as low as 0% interest.

    We can put in a custom request to divide up your share for you and your friends by letting us know how many ways you need your share divided. You will need to decide who gets on-off cuts like beef tongue, organ meats, oxtail, hangar steaks, etc.

    We can only deliver to one address. We also have the option where you and your friends can all pick up at our San Marcos warehouse.

      Best quality around - love it - buying bulk again

      Bought an 1/8 and my family loved it so much and so did I. Now getting a 1/2 cow, loading up! I love having high quality grass fed beef ready for every meal. Ground beef turns into amazing meatballs. Roasts in the crockpot turn into the best tasting meat I’ve ever had. Other cuts are premium too.
