I had mentioned several weeks ago that we would be getting a cow. No, not as a pet, but to eat. My parents, aunt and uncle and us split half a cow, three ways. It was from a local farmer, grass-fed and organic and a local butcher took care to create various cuts. As you can see from the pics, my freezer is now full of yummy and all-natural beef. 

The meat was priced per pound, so we paid $2.55 per pound for ground beef, hamburger patties, Porterhouse, rump roast and several other cuts of steak. The price per pound was amazing for the ground beef alone, since rarely does it go below $2 a pound anymore. $2.55 per pound for the other cuts is super cheap, especially for grass-fed, organic beef. Obviously, you pay it all upfront and have to have the freezer space for it all, but for us it's been a great deal. 

The other night, we tried the Porterhouse steaks and they were amazing!! Almost as tender as filet Mignon and with wonderful flavor. I'll keep you updated on how it all tastes!
