  • Cowpooling in the west Florida area? (Tampa/St. Pete, Ocala, Crystal River)

    If you live anywhere in the general area of Crystal River, FL (about 40 minutes from Weeki Wachi) from Tampa all the way to Ocala, I am willing to cowpool with you!

    I would love to cowpool with some people in the area as I cannot afford or fit a whole quarter of a cow! XD

    On Eat Wild, there are many suppliers of grass-fed beef for this area. When I get more people to chip in, I will start suggesting some places.

      I live in Gainesville, but I doubt I even have room or the money for a cowshare. Im just a poor graduate student living month to month off stipend checks.

          I'm a student in St. Pete. I might be interested. I looked around for a bit and wasn't able to find anything that wasn't way out there price wise, or grain finished. Let me know what you find.

            The beef in this area is so expensive! The cheapest I've found was $6 per pound hanging weight, which ultimately turns out to be about $8 or even 9$ per pound when it's packaged.

              If I could find someone around the Pensacola area to do this with, I'd be sooooo game. There is just no good meat around Pensacola FL.

                I'm so sorry, I know what you mean by the term but I had this ridiculous mental image of a whole lot of people riding a cow . . . ROFLOL. I have a weird sense of humour!

                  you know Rivvin... one day when you're feelin' squirrely you should go get an ostrich egg from the farm near you ... I'm waiting for the day I can afford/get my hands on a couple of eggs to play with

                    I was watching Iron Chef America the other day and Jamie Oliver was the challenger. He used an ostrich egg in one of his recipes. They said that an ostrich egg was equal to approx. 20 standard chicken eggs and it had a slightly higher fat content. I would love to get my hands on some of those and make a giant omelet.

                      Holy moly, I was just at blackwater last weekend fishing. I will definitely go back and get an egg or two and come back here and post a trip report!

                        brittanyk06,
                        I'm way south of you but was just checking this out with a local farm. No, I haven't jumped in yet. And a lot has to do with the money involved. Anyway, there's a local farm here that has grass fed/finished beef for $3/lb hanging weight. But, you have to add a butcher charge to the 1/4 cow of about $110. So, about $710 for 200lbs of meat; $3.55/lb. They also offer a split-quarter which is half of a front quarter and half of a back quarter. I've emailed the lady several times as I'm pretty reluctant to fork over major money without trying the beef first. She offered 20lbs at $6 a lb. And, now because of money, I'm holding off on that too.

                        So, if anyone was closer, I've got an untried source for lower priced beef. But, I'm in the armpit of extreme SW Florida.
