Buying Clean Meat from Local Farms
I got an email from my sister, who reminded me that is time to place orders for the meat. To try and eat cleaner we order a quarter of cow and have it cut up to specifications. I wanted to share with you the two places I know of here locally in Virginia that you can do that. There might be other places, but these are what I know.
Polyfacefarms is located in the Shenandoah in Virginia. This is where I have done most of my ordering. They have very good meat and I like the fact that I don't have to drive all the way to the Shenandoah's to pick up my order. They have several drop off locations around the state where you can pick up your order.
The second is Miller Farms Market located in Spotyslvania County, Virginia. I have not yet tried them. I do go to their farm to pick strawberries. They are just the nicest bunch of folks you could ever meet. I hope to try out their meats this year.
I do want to mention that I have a freezer that I dedicate to storing the quarter of the cow and half a pig. It is costly up front. But, I don't purchase a lot of meat during the year.
