Order your Custom Cut whole, half or quarter beef
Dry-aged 14 – 21 days!
- We offer two yearly custom butchers – In early spring we have our hugely popular Big Spring Beef Round Up when we harvest 30 – 35 grass-fed/grass-finished steers for our customers throughout New Mexico, most of whom are longtime loyal customers of JX Ranch. With the spring butcher we offer free delivery to Roswell, Alamogordo, Edgewood, Santa Fe and Las Vegas, New Mexico (we do not ship custom cut beef orders). We take orders until sold out, so be sure to get your order in early! Please call or email Mimi if you have any questions or need some help with the order.
- In the fall we offer a much smaller butcher (usually 10 – 12 steers only). This butcher does not include delivery – you’ll pick up your meat at Fort Sumner Processing in Fort Sumner.
The order process is simple; pick one of the two order forms JX Ranch Package Order Form (whole, half or quarter beef) or Select Order Form (half and whole beef orders only), submit and pay the deposit – and you’re done! When the meat is ready (dry-aged 14 – 21 days, (depends on the individual carcass, and we leave the decision up to our custom butcher who keeps a close eye during the whole aging process), cut and wrapped into individual packages with your name and the content of the package printed, frozen, boxed up and total amount of meat weighed) I will send you an invoice through PayPal with the balance on your order. Your initial deposit of course goes towards the total cost of the meat. You only pay for the pounds of meat you actually receive; We pay the butcher costs, so there is no confusing pricing based on “live weight”, carcass or hanging weight”!

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
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
How it Works
When your meat is ready – for the Spring Butcher around end March till mid-April, and fall butcher end October early November – we will let you know how many pounds of meat you’ll receive, an send you an invoice for the balance. In the spring, as a courtesy and to save you the drive to Fort Sumner Processing to pick up your meat, we offer free delivery* to meeting locations in Roswell, Edgewood, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, and Alamogordo.
On the order form, you have the option of a voluntary contribution of $10 towards delivery – always appreciated, never required. For the Spring Butcher with delivery, If you cannot meet us at the appointed time and date, you will need to pick up your meat from Fort Sumner Processing as soon as possible. Fall butcher customers pick up the meat at Fort Sumner Processing.
Many of our customers get together with friends or family to split a whole or half beef for cost savings. If you split an order with someone you both still pay the lower price per pound but can still submit your own cut sheet.
What it Costs
With us you pay only for the total pound of meat you actually receive. No confusing “carcass” or “hanging” weight costs, and we pay the butcher, you don’t. Current prices, all inclusive, are $8.50/lb for a quarter beef order, $8.25/lb for a side (half beef) order and $8/lb for a whole beef order. The amount of meat you can expect to receive would be in the range of 85 – 110 lb on a quarter, 170 – 220 lb on a half beef and 340 – 400 lb on a whole beef.
For the larger Spring Butcher, we are usually sold out by November, and for the smaller fall butcher usually by late summer. We recommend you get your order in early. Let us know if you have any questions or want some help with either form. We will post on the order forms when we are sold out.
