What is freezer beef (or locker / rail beef)? This is when you purchase beef in bulk for your freezer.
You purchase whole, half or, in some cases, a quarter** steer. The steer is taken to a processor who will, in turn, make sure you get the beef back in pretty packages (white waxed or vacuum sealed). Normally you get to choose what cuts you desire.
This method is more economical than buying individual cuts, and at Lilybird Ranch is much leaner and healthier than what is found in grocery stores.
Our beef is consistently tender, excellent tasting beef raised in a sustainable ranching system without the use of antibiotics or hormones. Our feedback is also consistent in that people say it is the best beef they’re ever eaten.

*WHY WE DISCOURAGE BUYING A QUARTER
We have some single customers and small families who don’t need half or whole beef and would prefer a quarter. Call (479-518-3001) for availability.
One of the reasons we discourage customers from buying a quarter beef is that this is something difficult for the processor to do. On half a beef you get to choose most available cuts from the front and the hind quarter.
With a quarter of beef, you are splitting half a steer. Because the cuts of meats in the front half different dramatically from the back half, the cuts are evenly divided between the two to make it fair for both people.
This will somewhat limit how you can have your beef cut as it is a compromise with the person who will get the other half. Also on a quarter beef, the steak will be one inch or smaller.
