I picked up our second CSA meat share from Cedar Valley Sustainable Farm (see our first share here). In terms of quantity, it’s a little less than the first meatload, but the retail value is probably comparable because this share includes steak and bacon.
Here’s the list:
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb pork sausage
- 1 lb ground pork
- One halved fryer, one cut-up fryer and one fryer leg quarters
- 1 lb bacon
- Two beef fillets
- Two dozen eggs
The first share worked out perfectly spread out over two months: we still have one pound of ground pork as well as six hamburgers we made and froze. As planned, we did not purchase any meat at the grocery store other than a small amount of prosciutto Jarrod talked me into for panini purposes. When Jarrod was in Iowa a few weeks ago he did purchase two pork chops and a bunch of brats from the Griffieon Family Farm. Can’t wait for summer BBQs!

The fact that you get eggs and bacon in this makes it even more appealing.
