I just finished defrosting my freezer in anticipation of the side of beef my mom and I are getting next week. We'll each be getting 150+ pounds of beef, so none of us in either family should end up anemic in the next year.
The beef is from a farm in Friedens, PA (which is in Somerset County). They raise Black Angus cattle there. Mmm, delicious. Their meat is hormone-free and they raise their own feed, so that helps them to score some points with me. I'm not some kind of organic zealot, but I try to take the healthier route whenever it is available.
Let's see, I've done the pork and beef thing already this year. Maybe next time, I'll try a whole chicken! I probably won't split it with my mom, though. (I can almost hear the groans.)
