So, we normally go in with friends and family members to buy a half a pork or a half a beef that we load up in our deep freezer--we like knowing where our food is coming from and having influence over how our meat is cut and packaged, as well as getting more of a bulk price than a regular retail price. But, we end up with a lot of bacon, sausage and ground beef that way. And, we're trying to steer (no pun intended) toward leaner cuts of meat right now, so, we're thinking we need to forge out on our own.
Where would you recommend we go in the Twin Cities for either pork or beef? We don't mind going to different sources to get the best product.
