where did you actually buy it? I heard some people in BC buy the whole cow for meat but I never heard anyone ca do it before. Please share me the contact or anything about the farm. I wanna buy it too.

I split half a cow with a co-worker every year. We buy from a farm near Waterloo (Mennonite)

At first it tasted weird, but that was because I never had hormone free beef before. Now it is all I will eat.

We pay $300 total for the butchering, it is aged for 45 days. We get the bones and the liver. The average cost is about $3.20 per pound.

You have to order a year ahead. As they raise most of their cows for the big boys and I get the smaller runts. I will get back to you in a few weeks when I go visit the farm.

Send me a reminder and I will get you contact information.
