Meatload #2

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!
