Picked up our Beef today

2013-01-01 1453 (600x450)

Well, we picked up 510 pounds of beef, plus bones and organs today from the butcher, my o my, that is a lot of beef.. Low end costs bought a full buy out, its around 2500 hundred dollars worth of beef, to buy equal to ours grass-fed, non-gmo feed locally, you are looking between 4080 to 5600.

Given that we needed to clean out, tidy both of our freezers, it seemed like the perfect time to do a full count on what we have at the moment.. I am not going to weigh it out but my guess is around a min of a thousand pounds of farm raised meat. Wow do I feed blessed and I don’t feel the need to raise or grow near as much meat over this season, some yes, but I think I will consider slowing down some of my breeding plans on the smaller critters.

Lamb- One whole lamb 24 pounds and 6 pounds of burger

Four whole Roasting Rabbits

1 Whole pig, right around 180 worth of Pork.

One turkey breast (farm raised left)

Parts of Chicken(farm raised left) totally, approx. three chickens

Parts of Duck (farm raised left) totally approx. four ducks

5 B.C. Salmon cut and wrapped into portions.

Ok, so talk to me folks, I am planning on Beef Jerky, Beef Bacon, Beef Sausages both fresh and cured, Corned Beef and I am sure I will figure out a few more things as well.. Is there anything you want to see me make with beef over the next while?

    Awesome! Can you talk to rendering the fat some? Also what do you do to flavour broth from grassfed, not nearly as much flavour it seems in bone broth tho definitely fatty… I find I use about half the bones. Also how do you prepare liver and other parts? Thanks!!!

  2. That is just great! What a blessing to have all that in the freezer!
