Each Beef Share is 1/15 of a side of beef: you’ll get an assortment of prime, secondary, roasting, and braising cuts as well as ground beef, fresh sausage and beef stock.
Our beef is local, and pastured by farmers we know personally. The beef are always antibiotic and hormone free, aged for three weeks, then cut and packaged. We do all the cutting ourselves in house. Our goal is to get you great tasting beef directly from the farm, with only us in between.
Each Share will range from 16 Lbs – 18 Lbs*, and while we do not sell the Share’s by weight we do work dutifully to ensure that each Share represents great value.

Why Do Chefs Spend So Much Time Talking to Farmers?
Food made with better ingredients will taste better. Chefs that spend their food dollars buying directly from people that grow food will buy better ingredients. And in the process, the best chefs are learning a thing or two about cooking from farmers as well.
How Do I Utilize My Beef Fat?
Fat has always been one of the most confusing things to understand. Is it good for us or bad for us? Why is some of it liquid (vegetable oil) and some of it solid (coconut oil)? Indeed, what’s the difference between fat and oil? Why are some of them opaque while others are cloudy and still others are translucent?
Why Is the Burger Stuffed with Braised Meat?
The burgers that you receive in each Beef Share of WSB are the same burger that we serve at Richmond Station. The burger is among the most popular items on the restaurant menu and among the most coveted items in each Beef Share.
