Buying a Quarter (or Side) of Grass Fed Beef (and other local meats)

Delairen | Apr 2, 2010 11:10 AM

I'm about to take the plunge and purchase my first (probably) quarter or (maybe) side of beef, and I was looking for recommendations from people who've done this sort of thing before. Anyone have any personal experiences they would like to relate?

Things I'd like to know:

Where did you buy?
What (amount) did you get?
How was the quality?
Would you do it again?

If you have experiences with Goat, Lamb or Pig, I'd also be interested in that. We just bought a big ol' chest freezer, and Mama's looking to fill 'er up.

Thanks!
