To Market .. To Market ... To Buy A

... Fat Pig ... Home again .. home again jiggity jig.

Off in a bit to pick up our yearly supply of organic Selkirk area beef AND an organic hog .. complete with hams and chops!  Last year we ordered a quarter of beef and that amount lasted our family of four with lots of company (so far) eleven months.  Only thing left is a prime rib, short ribs and two roasts.  The chest freezer has been cleaned out and defrosted ...ready and waiting.  This is our first year buying a hog.  Hoping my freezer space is big enough.

I am looking into buying a quarter of beef too, from the local market I get my ground beef from. It would be nice to have the freezer stocked like that.

I think you have the same freezer we do!

I'd love to buy a quarter cow or half a cow (or hot), but have no idea where to start. Maybe someday!

Have just been catching up with some of your back postings, love the rose petal jam, I will definitely be giving that a go, and the home made laundry soap too. Lovely blog, thanks, I'll be back

I would love to be able to buy beef and or pork like that. We don't have a freezer at this time so that needs to come first.
