How does it work?
What is the right amount?
Let's say you eat beef 3x a week on average. Based on that, for one year you will need:
1/4 beef if you are 2 people
1/2 beef if you are 4 people
A whole beef if you are 6 people
How much space will I need?
In a regular freezer, you have space for 30/40 lbs of cut and packaged meat (a little less than 1/8 beef, could be an idea to give that little extra to the local food bank) and there will be also some place left for some other products like frozen pizza, ice cream, etc.
The beef can be stored in the freezer for up to 12 months.
How do I defrost the meat?
The meat comes frozen. It is important to defrost it properly in order to preserve its quality.
The best way is to place the beef in the fridge 24 to 36 hours ahead of eating. The best way is to place the beed in the fridge 24 to 36 hours ahead of cooking (larger cuts can also sit on the counter for up to 24 hours). If you decide to cook last minute, fill a large bowl with cold water, place the steak in a resealable plastic bag, and submerge it in the water for 1 or 2 hours depending on the size and thickness. Change the water every 30 minutes.
How do you ship the meat?
Your package will be shipped with UPS.
Besides meat, it will contain some useful information and most importantly dry ice so your meat will stay prime. The dry ice will evaporate right before it gets to your door, in order to ensure safe handling. So don't worry if you don't see any and be assured that we carefully plan the quantity according to your location/climate.
How can I recognize all the different cuts you send me?
We know that the variety of unique cuts can be overwhelming. We created an infographic included in your parcel, which will help you navigate through the cuts and can also help keep track of your inventory.
