About

Our Family Variety Packs (Beef & Pork) are our most popular meat buying options. With a 10 or 20# family pack you get much of the price advantage of buying in bulk without needing to have the deep freezer required to store a half or whole animal.

A 10 pound family pack comfortably fills a plastic grocery bag and fits easily in the freezer compartment of your fridge.

We have three options for buying Family Packs:

  • Beef Family Pack
  • Pork Family Pack
  • Pork CSA    (Best Deal!)

Supply is limited and at times sold out months ahead. All packages are reserved in advance by non-refundable deposit, credited towards your final bill at pickup.

Contents

Our Family Packs contain a variety of cuts and are subject to change. Basically I take the animal and divide n ways; mixing and matching to bring each pack out to 10lbs, give or take a half pound. The 20 lb pack is simply two 10 pound packs.

You can expect a representative selection of the cuts of an animal in their normal proportions; though owing to the pack size you won't see every cut.

Like with bulk you're accepting many of the risks inherent to getting meat that way. I can't predict how the meat will turn out. And they are priced and organized based on the total animal cost, not individual cuts so you have the same unpredictability of cut yields and weights owing to the vulgarities of animal yields and how the butcher cuts it; just as wen you buy a whole cow or hog.

I cannot tailer the pack to individual wants nor can I swap out cuts if you don't like what you get. If you're not willing to be surprised, if you want certain cuts and not others, or if you're not willing to seek out new recipes for unusual cuts; family packs are not for you. Buy individual cuts instead.

Orders are filled first come, first serve so don't wait, order now!
