Half of Beef


Buying half of beef is a great way to save money and know you always have dinner in the freezer. The traditional method of finding the right farmer, processor, and figuring out cut selection and cost seems difficult and confusing. Few of us understand how the live weight, hanging weight, or box weight translates into what I can expect to get.

Remove the guesswork with the Amana Farms Half a Beef bundle. There is only so much room in your freezer; make sure it’s filled with your family’s favorites! We’ve selected the most popular cuts, removed the less desirable, and maximized the amount of ground beef for everyday meals and special occasions.

Our Half of Beef bundle includes approximately 250 pounds of finished beef. The breakdown is roughly 20% steaks, 15% roasts, and 65% ground beef & ground beef patties—a great way to stock up and save.

Purchasing the Half a Beef bundle requires freezer space or a friend to split the bounty. You’ll need about one cubic square foot of freezer space for every 30-35 lbs of cut and wrapped beef.

Each Amana Farms Beef bundle includes a complimentary digital meat thermometer.
