We got our meat!

We got our meat! | Making Her Mama

So, here is what 155 pounds of beef looks like:

We got:
18 lbs. of ground beef
13 lbs. of bones
7 lbs. top round roasts
7 lbs. of prime rib
6 lbs. of chuck steak
6 lbs. bottom round roasts
5 1/2 pounds of short ribs
5 1/2 pounds of t bone steaks
5 lbs. of stewing beef
4 lb. cross rib roast
4 1/2 lb. sirloin tip roast
3 pounds of top sirloin steaks
1 1/4 lbs. of tenderloin

Now if you’re a math person, you know that doesn’t add up to 155 pounds, it’s actually around 86 pounds. We called the farmer to verify (as it is our first time buying this way and we weren’t sure). The half of the cow we claimed as our own weighed 155 pound hanging. After being butchered you end up with 65-75% of that weight in cuts. We are also entitled to the innards (ie. the tongue, the liver), but we passed.

Our meat is a mix of Angus, Limousin and Hereford. They are raised without hormones, not fed any animal by products, they are grass raised locally on over 100 acres of hay fields. They have free range weather permitting. This farm is basically organic, except for the treated wood in the fence πŸ™‚ Gotta love politics and paperwork!

    That is a whomping amount of meat! May I ask how much that costs?

  • Two Hens says:

    We paid $3.50 per pound (but that is the hanging weight i was talking about). It worked out to about $275 each.

    The t-bones were excellent! Our BBQ has a searing burner which l started the steaks on. l cooked them for about 4 mins per side and then moved them over to the regular burner to finish them off. They were juicy and had great flavour. Now I am looking forward to trying our prime rib.

  • #messy tables usually cause me grief! But not this time, when I turned around and saw our #kitchentable a complete cluttered #mess, I felt happy πŸ’• today my table reflects the mom I want to be for my kids always. We went on a #naturewalk together, #collected leaves, make #leafprint artwork and enjoyed each other! Our messy kitchen table reflects the love and learning that happened here today. What about you? What made you smile today?
  • This #sweet and #serious boy is on the count down to #threeyears! Time goes so fast it's crazy!!! If you've been following my feed for awhile you know how old my baby is! If you multiply his age and Mickey Blues age - they are the square root of my next oldest son! He just had a birthday. How old did he turn??? #math #riddles
  • I'm not good at #mushroom identification but I still like to #photograph them!! We found these little ones growing on the side of the road on our #naturewalk this morning. Izzy and I are starting a #couchto5k program and today was our first #run. We enjoyed our walk back looking at leaves and everything growing along the side of the road. He wants to learn to #identifymushroom . Anyone that can #identifythis ?
  • Things are certainly coming along well in the #garden !  The #garlic is about 2 feet tall, the #potato plants are ready to mound up, as our everbearing #strawberries have flowers on them! Despite the cooler than normal #weather at this time of year, everything is growing and growing well! I can't wait to walk through the garden in full bloom and pick our food πŸ’•
  • Happy Mother's Day everyone! I don't get to see or be with my mom this year so I wrote this letter to her for #mothersday. It's my #mothersdaygift to her and my #encouragement to #moms and #daughters everywhere. #linkinbio πŸ’•
