I also just got grassfed beef from http://www.morrisgrassfed.com/

if you were to call them now, you may be able to still get in on a split half or family pack, if you call NOW.
Okay, I joined a CSA that's a little closer to me (Walnut Creek) called Eat Outside the Box. They have eggs too! Tuesday is my first pick up!!! YAY!!!

I called about the beef and they have a few split halves left!!
I have a fridge w/ the freezer on the top. Will I be able to fit all that beef in there????
Do you know of a place that sells good chickens??? That would be nice too! ha ha
Thanks for the links!!!

Half of a steer? Not likely. Maybe 1/4.

Yes, half of a half... they sell a half also but that's too much for me right now! ha ha

I think if the freezer is large and there is nothing else in there (like an ice maker), it could fit.

Did they tell you how many cubic feet you will need to store the meat?
You can measure your freezer and see how many cubic feet you have available.

*That's* a brilliant idea. And that will give you an idea of how many friends and family members to invite for the initial barbecue.

I doubt you would be able to fit a split half in there
I guess you could try though. I am also not one who knows alot about these sorts of things.
We bought an upright freezer for our garage to fit our family pack plus 20 pounds of liver.

Small chest freezers are pretty inexpensive and energy efficient.

Oh you are my most favorite person in the word right now! (well next to my family of course
) I've been searching ALL OVER for a local farm that does grass fed beef. I had given up and was just about to order online (which isn't bad but I'd like to support my community) when you posted this and I found like 15 really close to me!!! I can't believe they wern't listed anywhere else! Seriously, you rock!!! (lol I know I'm a little overenthusiastic right now)
