Inquiring Minds Want To Know...

at least, I was always curious. How much a quarter of a cow actually LOOKS like, all cut up and ready for your freezer. Man and I finally, after many moons of debating, bought a share of a cow--1/4 of a cow. And here it is:




And, because I know that I would want to know, it cost-all together with the processing fees--about $350.00. This is an Angus cow, grass fed, no hormone, free range, all the good stuff. It is about 275 pounds of meat. Completely worth it.

My husband and I go in on a cow and a pig each year, and the results are sooo much better than store-bought!

I guess we don't have to say "Where's the Beef?" Whoa! That's alot of meat.
My inquiring mind wants to know how one goes about "getting in on a cow?"

I too recently found out what 540 lbs of salmon, and halibut looks like when my husband returned home from Alaska last week. Our freezer door will only shut once you tossel the packages down to a completely even level. I am thrilled to FINALLY have salmon WITHOUT coloring added!

That's alota meat, lady.
We did that growing up. I LOVED the pigs and loved them served as bacon. It was a huge conflict. Til I smelled it frying.

Oh yeah, the best way to go! Love that home grown beef! We do that all the time too, and share a half with my inlaws. It's a lot of meat! I can hardly stand getting ground beef from the store now though!
