I was thrilled to pick up my quarter beef of local (up the road about ten min) of grass fed beef. I have a lot of chicken, turkey, duck, goat, pork and will have a good amount of lamb.. so I just needed to flesh out the freezer with some beef.
I was thrilled to find a close to me local place that raises their animals so well, I have seen the momma cows, the calves, the pastures.. and it helps support a local farmer that raised Non-gmo Grains!
Got to love folks that are walking the walk.. and not just talking.. As you know, I am trying hard to lean down the farm in animal numbers and winter work.. adding in a bottle calf was not a good choice this summer/fall.. but I was watching my beef supply get lower and lower.
This left me trying to figure things out.. this was the perfect solution!
I have also ordered my bulk grains from them by the ton when they are ready and they will be delivered to the farm and I will put them up for the full winter’s use.. some for sprouting, some for fall winter sowing in the sheep pastures for a spring push for winter wheat for in fill..
This was the first meal I made.. minute steaks with fresh onions, mushrooms, zucchini and peppers.. so good.. that wonderful lean meat with great flavour.. Grass fed meat is so lean.. you do not take out fat.. you add fat in..
There is a learning curve on cooking with such lean meats..
