One of my favorite times of year. My in-laws have been beef farmers for over 50 years and every fall they give us a whole steer, we just pay the butcher fees. 500# in the freezers (about 1/4 didn't fit in the stand up) of pasture-raised, grassfed, heritage bloodline Hereford. No hormones or bulking feeds, just pure beefy goodness! Had patties made for the first time this year; why the FARK haven't I done that before?!?!? Just thought I'd share the joy with the bruddahs and sistahs; we're a pretty financially tight family, but are blessed into riches in the beef department every fall, it's nice to have such generous family!
