Obligatory "I was doing this before it was trendy"

It's called being poor and going in on a side of beef together with a friend or family member.

I'm not sharing meat with anybody!

Not only that, but if you want quality cuts for a reasonable price, there is a farm around here that will also let you slice up pigs and goats, but you have to do your own butchering,

This has been going on for very, very long time and was the theme of one Andy Griffith episode......

The Andy Griffith Show Episode 120: Bargain day
Originally Aired on Mar 23, 1964.

Diamond Jim's, a new butcher shop, opens and Bee heads there hunting for a bargain. She walks out with a side of beef to put in her last "bargain" purchase-a freezer that she discovers doesn't work. Now stuck with a freezer full of thawing beef she must return to Foley for help, but even though Foley offers to store the contraband, Andy won't allow it and instead buys a brand-new freezer.

Bunch of communists, side-stepping the whole capitalist system to get their fix of "community supported meat".

The article struck me as laden with hipster-speak.
 
2011-04-08 02:29:51 PM  
The reason this was reported was because of the AW "look at me, I'm buying local and caring about the environment! I'm so green!"
Never mind the fact that it has been going on for a hundred years before they made it trendy. Hell my parents were dirt farking poor in the 80's and that is the only way we could afford to put meat on the table.

No offense, but you didn't do this. They somehow found a way to get all the hassle of what you did, while still managing to pay higher prices than just shopping at Whole Foods or an upscale butcher. In your foolishness, you probably saved a ton of money, which is obviously not nearly as cool.

Since when is 70 lbs. half a cow? Doesn't a side of beef weigh in at like 400 lbs?

You might want to price meat at Whole Foods/upscale butcher, and then rethink your position. I do this with pork - picked up a pig a couple of weeks ago - half for me, half for a friend. I get free-range, organic pork and it averages out to about the same price as shopping at a regular supermarket. The only "hassle" is you need a freezer big enough to store it, and you're fronting the money for 50 lbs of meat at once.

\not to mention that free-range pork is well nigh impossible to find, even at Whole Paycheck...

Try WalMart. It is just walking around in there, usually pushing a cart and wearing something that will get its photo on the Internet.

I've been getting Berkeshire pork for way better prices from a local farmer than if I were to drive into one of the towns that has a whole foods near here and just pay for their spendy organic pork that isn't near as nicely marbled as Berkeys.

Yeah, but then I'd have to butcher it myself. This way, it comes already butchered, vacuum-sealed, with the bacon and hams already smoked.

All I did was RTFA, where they were bragging about how much of a hassle it was to split a cow, and also bragging about how it actually cost more than a supermarket.

My point was that his experience couldn't have matched that in TFA, because it was cheap and easy.
 
2011-04-08 04:28:49 PM  
Uh, okay. New trend. Not like our family has been getting almost all of our beef that way for a few years now.

\Grass fed, straight from the farmer.

joegekko: Since when is 70 lbs. half a cow? Doesn't a side of beef weigh in at like 400 lbs?


Roughly, yeah. I bought a half-beef last fall, 363lbs at $3.35 per pound, cut just how I wanted it. It's even better than last year's beef, and that was some of the best beef I've ever had.
 
2011-04-08 06:40:33 PM  
Wow, I actually never knew people did this. I always just eat the entire god damn cow at once, and assumed everyone else did too.

stewbert: They somehow found a way to get all the hassle of what you did, while still managing to pay higher prices than just shopping at Whole Foods or an upscale butcher.


Buying from the rancher is cheaper than the comparable meat from WF. Traditionally-raised (no hormones, antibiotics, and 100% grass-fed) beef is about $5.25 from the group I buy with -- for every cut (including butchering). This kind of ground beef is $7.25 at WF, and their ribeye steaks are $15/lb. WF doesn't even carry traditionally-raised pork or chicken. So, before you spout off next time, do your homework, okay?

Again, I was just referencing TFA, and being a smartass. I would expect a side of beef to be far cheaper, but that wasn't what I got from TFA.

I'll do my homework, you do your reading.
