    all sorts of cuts, have custom ground beef blends. I have a 30% fat from dry aged fat ground beef blend waiting for me in the frig tonight.

    I picked up a good menangerie of cuts a month ago on "special"

    Makes the capital grill/ Eddie Vs/ high end steak house etc steaks seem just ok.


    My friends dad in Burnwell Nebraska leases his land to Morgan Ranch's herd through out the year.

    Granted its higher than Costco but for the price its a great splurge and not to bash Omaha ... but it crushes Omaha

    Granted I'd love to get soem local farm raised beed round here as well I remember a member Highsider? used to do that...
    Thats what we do, buy a half a pig and half a cow once a year, like 10 chickens too.

    We get it from Westons Beef in Gardiner, ME

    https://www.facebook.com/westonsmeat/

    You can get anything and everything you want. I take the pork lard, render it down, and make pie crusts and frosting out of it. I take some soup bones and boil them down for stock and bones for the dog. I don't take the organ meat. You can specify any cut you want, and they do smoking for ham and bacon. You can choose all your cuts, package sizes, etc.

    It's not cheap, our order is like $1400, but it is high quality and lasts us a year.

    You pay by the pound, pre-butchering weight. So if its a 1,400 lb cow, you buy 700 lbs of it for half a cow, and get like 500 lbs of meat or whatever.

    You wouldn't be wise to count on just one deer for your years supply of red meat unless you get a big sumbitch!

    Sounds similar to what we have around us too. There's a handful of people that offer it too.

    The meat is pretty great. You just get a little of everything, burger, steaks, roasts, I have a brisket, soup bones, sandwich steak, etc, then from the pig we have whole ham, ham steaks, pork shoulders, bacon, ground pork, ribs, pork loin, pork roast, leaf lard, regular lard, etc etc etc

    That actually sounds really reasonable for the quality to me.

    I have a couple clients that raise beef, probably saw one of em posing on facebook or beef @ $5.50/lb butcher date in a couple weeks, I'm sure it's all spoken for now. The slaughterhouse is so booked up, you have to make the appointment before you even have the livestock

    I've been considering raising rabbits, one New Zealand buck, and 2 does will produce 180lbs lean meat a year, NZs grow to 5lbs in 8 weeks
    tastes like chicken ?

    Its real hard to go back to hannaford chicken. Good steaks, but less of a difference in steaks that I can tell. These pork chops vs hannaford pork chops are honestly like 2 completely different things.

    Its not certified organic, but its just local cows from a farm. Small time stuff. We really like it, and it is satisfying using as much of the animal as we can.

    Fuck yeah, I'm well aware. We have a few friends that've been doing it this way for years.

    Same with the couple butchers/slaughterhouses/processors around here. TOTALLY backlogged.

    I recently hooked up with an old timer in town that raises rabbits. Holy FAHK, I'm hooked! It's to the point now sometimes that if I show up with a 12-pack of Natty Light, he'll usually give me rabbit all dressed and vacuum packed.

    I didn't know you had a source for rabbit,

    If I had a pig or sheep, I would like to believe I could get Russ to squeeze me in, even though he has a 9 month backlog, I got his septic approvals quickly, for both the slaughterhouse/butcher shop, and his house, same with Brett for smoking some pork

    I wouldn't even attempt to raise a beef

    Are you talking about the guy on South Barnstead Road with the newer place? And Brett as in Tiede?

    I wouldn't say I have a source, per se. More like, every now & then I'll run into him and hit him up. That or just show up with some Natty Light. But he's not like, selling them or anything. Apparently, he & his wife eat A LOT of rabbit. He had NO idea how quickly they multiply at first. The first couple years he had quite the over abundance of them!

    Don't even bother with store bought. Tastes nothing like fresh (obviously).

    he's only raising them for personal consumption, he recently started sustenance farming, he also raises meat chickens (built a plucker out of a washing machine) and laying hens. And has milking goats. He's on about 20 acres, medium size tractor, (New Holland iirc) a Woodmiser mill, he's been cutting lumber for pens and sheds.

    At one time, I had planned doing that with my life, but just got too busy with the survey work, most I ever had was laying hens 3 dozen eggs a day, for a few years. The deal on the land didn't work out for me, and I'm pissed now, I was told by town, the land was restricted from building.... guess what, someone lives there now. I was going to grow sugar beets, and make my own fuel alcohol with a solar still, right out of Mother Earth News, I even went so far, as to get my permits for alcohol manufacture, from BATF, I was gathering materials, the still would have been based on an old sliding glass door (ended up being used as a huge light table in my survey office) My research led me to believe I could make 2500gal fuel alcohol/acre of sugar beets. Converting an oil furnace is as easy as changing the nozzle, engines a little more complicated, but I would have only converted onsite machinery

    If I was doing something similar today, I'd go for hemp seed oil, cannabis less than .03% thc is now legal federally

    however at 68 years old, I don't see it in the cards
