The day finally arrived! We received our bulk beef order. I don’t know who’s more excited about our bulk beef order, the dogs or Rico Suave?
Almost 2 months ago, we ordered a quarter of a cow from Brad’s Produce. Brad’s just started raising Angus beef on their farm in Darlington in 2013 and we wanted to buy in on some quality beef.
Box 1: Mostly ground beef, about 40 lbs worth.
Their beef is locally raised in Darlington. The cows are grass fed and grain finished and, most importantly, they are hormone and steroid free. The beef is dry aged and butchered by a local butcher, Bowman’s Butcher Shop.
Box 2: Mostly steak cuts
We viewed this as a great way to enjoy quality beef at a great price. This quality beef goes for around $15/pound at a store like Wholefoods…we are getting it for around $5/pound. That is an amazing savings, even though we had to pay for it all up front.
Box 3: Mostly roast cuts
The best part about it was that we got to specify exactly what kind of cuts we wanted. I even got the dogs some goodies. I was able to special order liver, tongue, and marrow bones.
Big marrow bone for the doggies
We had to use a saw to cut this big marrow bone in half but the dogs are in heaven and they already devoured a pack of liver for dinner.
