Bulk Beef Deposits are LIVE Now! Don't miss out on Filling Your Freezer with Delicious Beef in 2022
Happy New Year my friend!!!
I hope your year is off to a great start, despite the negative-degree chill in the air!
Ours has been great so far!
Many people have asked me, “What did you do for the New Year?”
Well honestly we just kept doing what we do.
I didn’t sacrifice any sacred sleep to stay up for midnight, we didn’t drink champagne or watch fireworks on New-Year's Eve.
Luckily for us- the 1st was filled with plenty of day-work to help us pay the bills and save for our life goals in 2022 and beyond! Truth is, what we get to do everyday is special.
We get to serve others in ways that only we can, and isn’t that really what we are here for???
When I think back on the people I had the privilege of serving in 2021 I smile, but I also feel I have it in me to do much more.
Chris and I felt so grateful to kick off 2022 serving others, and I hope it is a year full of cheerful serving for us, and for you, from brim to brim.

What are others saying about their bulk beef packages?
Steven G. Laramie, WY ️️️️️ "We could not be happier with our bulk beef package from BJ and Chris. It feels great to purchase products from ranchers we trust and the team at Taste of the Wind exemplifies the reason why doing your own thing is a blessing. Quality products. Quality people. The right choice right here in Wyoming. #homegrown #tasteofthewind #whereitbegins"
Emma B. Louisville, KY ️️️️️ "Great products! The beef is so flavorful. It makes such a huge difference when it comes from small producers like Taste of The Wind. Direct from the ranch and shipped to you!"
Michael E. Hermiston, OR ️️️️️ "Great service and great products! Variety is good, they even have stuff for my dogs. The beef tastes great! Would highly recommend to anybody wanting to buy high quality meat from local ranchers." Abbie E. Longmont, CO ️️️️️ "I've decided to go vegetarian, with the exception of meat products from Taste of the Wind. Not only do I know the animals have lived happy sustainable lives, the meat also tastes incredible. I have first hand experience seeing how much space their animals have, and it's not like anything you can find from commercial farming. Other things to love: the owners use every bit of their animals, nothing gets wasted."
Why Is Now The BEST Time To Order Beef?
Have you ever heard that when you harvest fruit at peak season, that not only does it taste better, but it also has a higher nutritional value? Well, the same is true for grass-finished beef. At Taste of the Wind, our Team of Ranchers works with Mother Nature, rather than against her, and we are rewarded with the most tender, juiciest, most flavorful beef on the planet!
For this reason, we have two herds a year; Premier and Select. Our Premier are our "prized steers" as the saying goes.
Why? These steers and heifers are harvested at peak season after they have been grazing on our delicious, nutrient-packed, High-Mountain grasses for an extended period of time. This means more weight gain over a longer time frame. All the exercise they get being out on open pasture brings tenderness and flavor to the meat.
AND before we take our cattle to the processor, they are also inspected and evaluated. Inspected by our expert ranchers and evaluated for the perfect harvesting age, the perfect physical fitness for harvesting, and the perfect weight and fat-finish for harvesting.
Anything less than perfect stays on pasture to gain more marbling and flavor as a mature beef- this makes up our Select herd. Older animals that have a more mature flavor and fat content. We call it double-aging, or aging-on-the-hoof.
Our Select herd yields a beef with a slightly different, yet wonderful flavor and a darker-yellow, beta-carotene-rich, grass-finished fat. Some folks argue that mature animals make more nutrient-dense beef that tastes better than the beef from younger animals, so we are offering beef from our Select herd for the first time ever in 2022- at a discount- so you can try this beef out and let us know what you think!

FREE Copy of our New Cookbook we wrote just for Bulk Beef Buyers
Free Organs & Bones Worth $155.00
Rushed right to your door first-come-first-serve With FREE Shipping or Delivery!
Q: What is included in the price?
Everything! We quote final weight. That includes the dry age process, butcher costs, packaging into freezer-safe vac sealed bags, our cookbook sent to you, and if you prefer- your beef shipped to you for free! Most ranchers charge for hanging weight (which is around $4- $5/lb). That means you pay for the carcass with bones and before it dry ages and looses more weight. Then they add processing & butcher fee onto that. At the end of the day your final price after processing averages out to around $10 to $15/lb. We simplify this and make it totally transparent for you by just charging for final packaged weight and skipping the mystery of hanging weight plus processing.
We've been selling beef directly to consumers for a long time now and we know the nuances of processing fees, butchering costs, and packaging costs. We bring you transparent, up front pricing that you don't have to guess over. Plus we are very competitive! Anywhere you go your final weight will be in the ball park of our price per lb. especially for 100% Grass-Finished Beef.
And we promise you won't find quality, tenderness, or flavor like ours anywhere else! Q: Why is grass-fed beef healthier than conventional beef?
It's almost easier to answer this by telling you what is NOT in your beef. There is not 2000+ other animals mixed together in your ground beef. There is no pink slime, preservatives, steroids, antibiotics, hormones. There are no exploitation of workers, mistreatment of animals, or theft of land-use and depletion of natural resources. You are simply purchasing pure and clean beef made from natural Wyoming grasses, fresh-air, hard work, and sunshine! Q: When will I receive my bulk beef share?
We harvest beef throughout the growing season March through December. You will be able to select which part of the growing season you would like to purchase beef from. This program is designed for folks wanting to have a beef supply that will last them all winter until next beef harvesting season. Q: Where are you located?
Taste of the Wind is located near Centennial Wyoming. Our 3 Ranches/Grass-Finished Beef Operations that we work with: Centennial Valley Grass-Finished Beef, Rardin Beef, and Balzan Beef are located in Centennial, Laramie, and Wheatland, WY. Our beef is born, grazed, and processed all within a 100 mile radius in Southeast WY. Q: Why is there a March 1st deadline to order?
Everything about grass-finished beef is driven by the seasons. Since the COVID Pandemic, we have to have our butcher dates scheduled at least 1-year-in-advance to guarantee processing dates for our beef. We also have to purchase hay for the winter months at least 6 months in advance. Cattle typically spend almost 2 years on the ranch before they are ready for harvest. That means your beef for 2022 has been in the works for over a year already! Isn't that amazing?!
Having all of our orders in by March 1st helps us to submit our plans to expert butchers by the deadline they need to make their plans. Our expert butchers take our cattle through their craft processing system at 307 Meat Company in Laramie, Wyoming. Skilled meat cutters, heavy-duty vac packaging, and our personal relationship with the crew make all the difference for you! This is an exciting way to source your food because you are setting yourself up for really tasty beef that you also have complete confidence in. At the same time, you and your family are learning more about beef production and supporting regenerative agriculture and Wyoming family businesses who put the environment first, benefitting every other creature associated with it including you! Q: Can I customize my order?
We do not offer customizations but rather apply our Taste of the Wind cut Template that has been perfected over the last 5 years of selling bulk beef. We do this because we have found custom cutting is often overwhelming for our customer and causes more problems than it solves. Our template cut sheet is the perfect ratio of dry aged steaks, slow cooker and savory cuts like roasts, and the perfect amount of stew meat and ground beef. Keeping everything the same for everyone helps us to deliver your product in a timely manner as well. Keeping things simple prevents your beef order from being pushed towards the back end of the processing because of all the customizations. The section above titled "your options" breaks down what comes in each bulk beef package.
