Before You Order Your Beef

Please read the following information to avoid problems and to ensure you understand what you are ordering and the costs.

Please contact us if you have any questions.  We want you have a good experience when you buy beef from the Chapman Family Ranches.

The Chapman Family Ranches provides the highest quality grass fed beef that one can achieve, and we sell beef sides, halfs, and  quarters.


Price is not guaranteed until your deposit check is received, and deposits must be received within 10 days of your order, or it may be canceled.


  • Deposit for a beef side is $250.
  • Deposit for a beef half is $500.

When the beef is delivered to the locker plant another $250 will be due before the beef will be processed.

The balance will be due upon delivery or when you pick up the beef at the locker plant.

The beef you will receive is what you get after the beef is processed and ready to eat. When the beef is processed there is cutting loss.  As an example, the fat and bones are removed.  Please see Weight of Beef below for more details.


  • Whole dressed beef   =   $4.49 per pound processed and ready to eat.
  • One half (1/2) dressed beef   =   $4.69 per pound processed and ready to eat.
  • One forth (1/4) beef = $4.89 per pound processed and ready to eat.

Most customers do not want the liver, tongue, kidney, heart and less desirable cuts. Please, let us know if you want these cuts, and they will be packaged for you.
