The Process…

In a nutshell, we sell you the cow, we then take it to the butcher of your choice, and you pay them for their services when you pick up your meat:

1. You complete the cut sheet for the butcher of your choice. Once submitted, you will be directed to our deposit page, where you pay the required deposit for the cow ($400 for half a cow; $800 for a whole cow).

If you want to share, or split, a whole cow with a friend, you can each submit your own cut sheet and pay the deposit, and cross reference each other in the comment box on the cut sheet. For splitting half a beef, (each a quarter) use one cut sheet together and sort the meat out when you get it home.

 2. In September, for the Fall Butcher and in March for the Spring Butcher, we weigh the cow before transporting it to your butcher of choice.*  When you pick up your meat from the butcher 3 – 4 weeks later, you pay them for the processing. Your meat packages will be frozen, and labeled individually.

We ask you to mail us a check for the deposit payment and the balance payment.


The various cuts on beef

Spring & Fall Custom Cut Beef Testimonials

There is a reason that I drive 450 miles for your beef. Your beef is simply the very best tasting grass fed beef that I have ever had. And believe me, I have searched for beef of equal quality in both Arizona and Oregon, but nothing can match your beef. Incredibly good flavor. Every time I cook even a hamburger, I am just amazed at how much better the flavor is than other beef that I have had. Keep up the good work.
Tim Flinn, Prescott, AZ

Once again, the meat is amazing. We did try some places here locally to avoid having a 16 hour round trip and while they were good, its just not the same as your beef. My wife even notices the difference and she really isn’t a beef eater. Tonight she asked for a steak (last time she asked for a steak was the first time we bought from you). My wife said we should order a whole for the Spring butcher now and just buy a larger freezer.
P. Waller, Selma, TX

I am so very happy with my beef. The flavor and quality is fantastic.
Thank you for your commitment to raise grass-fed beef and make it
available on-line.
R. Grimes, Roswell

This is our 4th side of beef that we have bought over the last several years, all from different ranches. JX Ranch beef is definitely at the top of the list for taste, tenderness and texture, the 3 T’s that we look for in our beef. The processor Tom and Mimi use does a very professional job cutting and packaging your beef.  One last thing; the customer service at JX is top notch also.  JX Ranch is a very real blessing to us and we hope to be able to do business with them this coming year. Thanks so much Tom & Mimi. Sincerely,
D & D Douglas Las Cruces

I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to you to thank you. Your beef is always the best quality and it is always  a pleasure to do business with you.
Mike L., Albuquerque, NM

Thank you, Mimi, for the delivery in Alamogordo. What a help this is. We are looking forward to enjoying your great beef again. Thank you again for the meat, the spatula, and the delivery.
Mack and Gayrene W., Las Cruces, NM

Your beef is by far the best we have ever eaten. We bought it to see if our sons could eat it (they have stomach issues with regular beef). They loved it and there was no stomach upset. My husband wasn’t in agreement with me buying it in the first place, but after he cooked up and ate the first set of burgers he was a believer. Thank you so much for caring for your animals and your customers.
T. Rodriguez, Los Lunas

I wanted to let you know that we are SO very pleased with the beef. We’ve tried a few different items so far and the taste is wonderful! I usually hate the smell of cooking beef, but not yours!
A. Goertz, Velarde

The beef that we bought from you this fall is excellent, as usual. I have tried several of the cuts and have been very pleased with all of them. Because of allergies and sensitivities to many things added to our foods, your beef is the only beef I can easily and comfortably digest. Thanks for making great food available to us!
Cynthia B., Clovis, NM

I am definitely going to order again this fall. We love the beef and the way its cut. Perfect.
Rob Hutchison, El Paso, TX

The beef is, as always, great! We are enjoying the various cuts of meat and learning new recipes is keeping us busy…the meat is too good to waste on bad recipes. 🙂 We appreciate your efforts, and will definitely be buying another quarter next year.
Jason R., Albuquerque, NM

We are enjoying our beef very much! The quality is exceptional as usual!
B. Atkinson, El Paso, TX

Every cut of beef from this cow has been very very tender. The beef almost tastes like the cow ate butter every day. LOL!!!! Very tasty. We are very pleased. Thank you very much for what you do and keep the beef coming.
R & L Aragon, Clovis, NM

Everything is perfect!! Thanks for making it so easy.
Kristi B., Glencoe, NM
