    172 pounds of grass fed organic beef. Been on the waiting list since July. They have a huge demand for their beef but they will only raise what the pastures can support. They are limiting people to a half side maximum right now. Best part is it came in at $3 a pound hanging weight. I take all the bare bones to make stock so very little waste on what I get.

    I'd like to hear more about this beef stuff.  Stock, ribs, and all.

    Sirloins, t-bones, ribeyes, round steak, chuck roast, sirloin roast, rump roast, round roast, soup bones, bare beef bones for making stock, ground beef, I always have some made into patties for quick meals. No ribs unless I ask for them, they end up parts of other cuts or as stock bones. Local farm to table grower, butchered by a local and not a huge packing plant so a rare burger is not a chance at getting e-coli. Heart, tongue, liver too although I give the liver to friends.
