From our Maine family farm to your family table, our Quarter Share gives you 85 pounds (170 pounds in a Side, 340 pounds in a Whole) of our amazing steaks, hearty and tasty roasts, and the best ground beef you've ever had. The perfect choice if you love great-tasting beef and want to eat healthier. Best of all, you'll know the farmer who raised the food you're serving your family.
KNOW THE FARMERS WHO RAISED YOUR BEEF
6 REASONS TO BUY A HEARTSTONE FARM COW SHARE
KNOW WHERE YOUR BEEF CAME FROM: Do you know where your beef comes from? When you buy a Heartstone Farm cow share from, you’re not just a customer - you become a part of our farm family. It’s a relationship that transcends just buying something - it’s personally knowing the farmer who raised your food.
IT’S HEALTHY: The beef we raise are 100% Grass Fed and Grass Finished. They are never given antibiotics. They live on our pastures except in the winter when they have shelter as well as access to outside. The science is clear - grass fed beef is better for you and your health.
IT’S CONVENIENT: If you’ve shopped in our online store you might have been frustrated by our inconsistent (and sometimes sold out) inventory. We’re a farm in Maine, raising a relatively small number of beef cattle, so our inventory can vary. But with a share, your freezer is always stocked. Plus no last minute runs to the grocery store (to buy meat you didn’t really want to buy anyways).
IT’S LOCAL: The grass fed beef sold in most grocery stores is imported from Australia - which seems kind of crazy. Especially when you consider that a few miles away from the grocery store a farm in Maine is raising local grass fed beef.
IT’S ECONOMICAL: A Quarter Share is a $144 savings over what you would pay if you bought by the cut - and a Side and a Whole save you even more.
IT’S DELICIOUS: 160+ five-star reviews attest to the great flavor of our beef. It’s why top Maine restaurants like The Lost Kitchen and Blaze serve our beef.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️ “MY GIRLFRIEND and I couldn’t be happier with our purchase. We have thoroughly enjoyed all of the cuts of steaks including Ribeyes, Filet Mignon, T-bones, Porterhouse and more! The beef is lean but still tender and full of flavor.”
Chuck Jackson, South Portland, ME
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️ “WE PURCHASED a quarter share last September. There is absolutely no comparison to grocery store beef. The package was splendid. I enjoyed dealing directly with the person who raised this wonderful beef. I would encourage all to try it. This is the best beef I’ve ever eaten.”

FARMER DAN UNPACKS A QUARTER SHARE*
* Quantities of cuts will vary
+ How is the beef packaged?
Our beef is packaged in vacuum-sealed cryovac and flash frozen. This insures it won’t get “freezer burn” and is same-day fresh when you thaw it.
+ How long will the beef last in the freezer?
Your beef will be good for at least 12 months. We recommend avoiding storing for long periods in freezers which are opened many times a day.
+ What quantities is the beef packaged in?
You receive convenient sized packaging in all of our cuts.
Ground beef is in 1 lb packaging.
Steaks like Porterhouse and T-bone are approx. 1 lb packages.
Roasts are typically 2.5-3.5 lbs.
Brisket is typically 3-4 lbs.
+ How is delivery arranged?
We coordinate a time with you. Because we are trying to accomodate the schedules of many deliveries in one day, we do our best to find a time that will work. Some customers who can’t be home will have us leave their beef in a cool garage, or even put it in their freezer. If you’re away or can’t be home for an extended time, we will not deliver your beef that day. In some instances, we may use UPS to ship your order. If we do so, we insure you will be home that day and we use ice packs and insulated shipping boxes. We also insure our UPS shipments against spoilage.
+ How do I pay the balance?
If you only pay a deposit when you place your order, we will bill you for your balance approximately 3 weeks before your delivery date. The balance is due at least 5 days before delivery.
+ Can I split my order with a friend or family member?
Yes - and we will even divide up for you if you’d like. We do need to deliver it to one location per order however.
+Can I customize what I receive?
We try to accomodate special requests. For instance one customer each year asks for a Prime Rib roast which his family has for Christmas dinner. We gladly accomodate him - though his order does not have Ribeye steaks - which is where the roast comes from. Feel free to ask and we will try to help.
+ What about soup bones and liver?
Our share customers who like making broth or enjoy beef liver get either or both at no additional charge.
+ Is your beef organic?
We are not “certified” organic but all of our practices are consistent with the requirements to be certified. It’s just a matter of the cost of the certification.
+ How much freezer space will I need?
For a Quarter figure on 5 cubic feet. For a Side, you’ll need 10. And for a Whole figure on 20 cu ft.
+ Any tips on buying a freezer?
Wait for the sales! Home Depot, Lowes and others have frequent sales and the prices are surprisingly reasonable.
+ CAN I SPLIT MY ORDER?
We can split order for a Whole into two separate deliveries.
+ IS YOUR BEEF USDA INSPECTED?
Yes it is. The slaughterhouse we work with has USDA inspectors on site at all times.
