We usually order 1/4 from Warren Wilson farms and it's a .25/lb. discount for the full steer, brings it to 4.75/lb. Anyone want to go in on one? I'll do the driving.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

Oh gosh I so wish you lived in Texas. We are trying so hard to find some good beef but to no avail. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Good luck, I hope you find someone to help!

you should pm root*children...she is in Asheville and might be interested (although she might still be a vegetarian, she might be interested for her family)

I can't find grass fed/organic/anything like that in our area. There is some, I think, in other places but for very expensive and too far.

My 1/4 last year was 105 pounds, finished weight. So I guess 400-450. I can't get the website to load for some reason but the packaging is:<br><br>
2 round steak, 4 sirloin, 8 tbone, 8 ribeye, 16 cube steak, 2 Tip roasts, 1 shoulder roast, 2 chuck roasts, 10lbs stew, 25 lbs ground beef, 12 strips short ribs. Sometimes it varies, but that's the average. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Oh, and the ground beef is NOT lean, not sure the actual grind but it does have a lot of fat in it. We save it to cook with. Mmmmm fried potatoes.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
That sucks, Kimmie. I'm kinda surprised we have so many sources here in the mountains. I'd drive you some but that's a liiiitle bit too far. :p
