We have a local farm that raises grassfed beef. They don't always have enough, unfortunately. My (raw fed) dogs love the bones, etc. they would normally toss.
We've had a bunch of venison gifted this year, as well as some antelope and fish. Some mighty good meals :)

I really miss eating my own grassfed beef

Comment by Elizabeth on March 9, 2012 at 11:20am

We started out raising horses, then we got some chickens (so we could have fresh eggs & meat), then we got some pigs (for meat also), then along came the sheep (took 'em in for an older lady who was no longer able to care for them), and somewhere in all of this we acquired a duck. It's 24-7, that's for sure. But, the pork is the best meat I have EVER tasted, I'll never eat store-bought eggs or chicken again, and I'm looking forward to knitting sweaters and socks from my very own hand-harvested wool. It's definitely worth the work to have such good fresh food.

muleman, The cattle business was the best job I ever had, even though I was just doing it on the side. Doing it that way can sure make for some long days though, I routinely fed hay in the winter in the dark after I got back from my day job.

Don't ever live with sheep. De worming, Vaccinating Lambing +++ mangy things put me off lamb chops!

Badmoon, People just don't know how much real 'hands on' their is in any kind of animal farming. Back in the 80's I had around 100 sheep penned around my trailer home every night for a week because we had a pack of dogs attacking. Sleep'd with a 12 bore and a choir of 100 haha!

Thanks Holger, that worked... loved it!

I think they have blocked the audience outside of Germany. What about this link?

Comment by jrtpup on March 8, 2012 at 5:27am

Welcome to the group Holger. The link starts to open then gives an error :(

Judith, so glad you were greeted by flora and fauna on your first outing! Hope you're well medicated and not in too much pain.
