Today we picked up our meat from the processor. Yes, the fruits of our labor will finally be on our plates. We kept the largest pig whose hanging weight was a whopping 287 lbs. The steer we split with my in-laws and our share was 281 lbs hanging. Every bit of that was wrapped in freezer paper to our specifications and ready to bring home today.
This was our share~
9 bags the size of feed sacks.
Our 17 cubic foot freezer was completely empty.
It's full now!
Tonight for dinner:
grilled ham steaks
skillet green beans & new potatoes
and homemade whole wheat bread
Every bit of it was grown or made right here on our farm.
That's a first and it sure felt good.
