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.

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.
What Happens to Meat When it Freezes?
A key ingredient of West Side Beef is your freezer. Freezing your share will allow you to enjoy it at a pace that works for you and your family. So often however, meat is frozen improperly, which makes it be mushy and tasteless once thawed. So how do you avoid this pitfall? Buy high quality beef, dry age it, and package it properly.
