My wonderful friend Meg, who was never the same after I lent her my copy of "The Omnivore's Dilemma", ordered and arranged to pick up a side of local grass-fed beef. We purchased it from the same woman at the farmer's market where we've been getting our local grass fed chicken and beef, and delicious local pork - Sweet Grass Farms.

We split the side of beef among 4 couples. Here are the 3 shares that she took with her after we divvied it up at my place:

Each family got an assortment of steaks, stew beef, ground beef, soup shanks, roasts, and misc. beef parts. 80 lbs. worth. As you can see, the meat is vacuum sealed in freezer bags which should prolong the freezer storage, and each cut is labeled.

We are excited to dig in! Anyone know any good roast or soup recipes?!?

That's really good to know. I used to live in Toronto and we ordered meat through a farmer like that and I've been hoping to find something like that here.
