Frequently Asked Questions on Buying Bulk Meat from the Farm Directly
What is bulk beef?
Bulk beef refers to purchasing a larger quantity of beef at once, typically an entire animal or a portion (share) of an animal. It is a cost-effective way to buy meat in larger quantities, and puts you in total control over the source and quality of the meat. You can also help your community by buying directly from Our Ancestors’ Foods, your trusted local farmer.

How much freezer space do I need?
The amount of freezer space you need will depend on the size of the share you purchase. As a general rule, you should have approximately 1 cubic foot of freezer space per 35-40 pounds of beef. You can refer to our “How much freezer space I need'' guide for more detailed information.
