Beef Shares: Quarters & Sixteenths

Here you can save 25% off our regular prices. PLEASE READ details below before purchasing!

How the sixteenths work: We simply split an entire beef into 16 individual bundles, and we make those bundles varied so you can select exactly the one that works for you!

PLEASE READ: All sixteenths are from 100% grass fed & finished animals that were finished on organic Alderspring pastures. Please note that these bundles are NOT certified organic. Below are the complete details. Questions? Email help[at]alderspring[dot]com.

The bulk beef offerings on this page are from cattle that we purchased as 100% grass fed yearlings or weaned calves from neighbors a few miles away. Our neighbors are not certified organic, but they use no GMOs and give no hormones or antibiotics to these cattle. Their cattle are born & raised on open pasture and are never fed any grain. After coming to our ranch as calves or yearlings, these cattle are raised and grazed alongside our certified organic cattle under certified organic standards for at minimum 1 year (usually 2). This beef is all processed at the same small-scale butcher as our organic beef under organic standards. It is packaged and cut in the same way as our organic cuts. We use a simple bulk white label on these packages to differentiate it from the beef that is certified organic. This is because our regular label has the "USDA organic" stamp on it and it would be illegal for us to use that label on beef that cannot be certified organic under USDA's standards.

This is beef we ourselves feel very comfortable eating (in fact, we sample a steak from each one)! There is no difference from our regular organic beef in terms of tenderness, cleanliness, & flavor. 

Prefer to buy only certified organic? That's fine! This page is the ONLY page on our website where non-certified beef is ever listed. We will NEVER list non-certified beef anywhere else on our website.
