Buying Whole or Half Animal

Recommended Posts

Buying a whole or half animal is a great way to save money on a producer's meat you like. And you can split the orders with friends or family.

When I was growing up, my mother bought half a side of beef every year. It made a huge difference in price at a time when we ate a lot of beef (4 kids) and money was tight.. I loved riffling through the shelves of our stand up freezer at flat, wrapped butcher papered cuts with the names of the cuts written in black magic marker. It was exciting to unwrap the package and find a chuck steak or a tri-tip or some other name that we grilled or pot roasted (Jewish family=lots of pot roasts.) Vacuum packing does not have quite the same romance.

New Asbury Farm has been selling whole (60 pounds) and half (25-30 pounds) of their excellent, young, tender and meadow raised Loudoun County lambs for about a year now. Butchered into cuts of your choice. Pick up in the summer and Fall at Bloomingale Farmers Market. (They come into town once or twice in the winter and have different pick up sites)
