How big is a Cordray Farms Beef Share?

People often ask how much freezer space a Beef Share takes. It's about 60 lbs. That doesn't mean much, though, if you are standing in front of your freezer, now does it? If you have us process your deer meat, you're familiar with the size of our boxes. A Share is 2 boxes.  It should fit in your top of the refrigerator freezer.
This photo shows  the individually vacuum sealed steaks, roasts, cuts and ground beef in a Beef Share. There's about 20 to 22 lbs. of lean ground beef in each share. Steaks are about 3/4 inch to 1 inch thick. Roasts are cut 3 to 4 lbs. each.Right now, we're still waiting for the first of the Spring harvest to be ready. Once they are, the carcasses will dry age for about 3 weeks, so it looks like we're still several weeks before you'll be able to pick up yours. If you'd like to reserve your Share, please send in your deposit soon. (We have about 10 Shares that are not spoken for in this first Spring batch.)
