      You live in New Brunswick? This one's in Memramcook. And it was awesome. I got 3 steaks and 4 things of ground beef. I'll be ordering 1/8 of a cow next month.

          2.80$ per pound if you buy an 1/8 of a cow (about 50lbs-55lbs according to the price guide). The owners live at 1569 rue Principale but their farm is right up the road at rue d'ecoliers.
          You need to order in advance because they deliver it right after it's slaughtered.

              There is a meat shop near the farm but I'm not sure if they sell from there (I bought mine directly from them). They don't have a website that I know of, I found them at eatwild.ca.

                    Quick update; We toured the farm yesterday and it is awesome. We will be buying 1/8 of a cow as well. The butcher shop near the farm is where they butcher the meat. I did hear from a reliable source that you should make sure you get your 50lbs-55lbs weighed in front of you before leaving with it from this butcher, as some received less than what they were supposed to. Just an FYI.

                      A quick response to that - when buying a full, half or quater cow - you are normally paying based on the hanging weight of the cow.
                      After it is aged and trimmed the weight will always be less. $2.80 a pound is a great deal. Hope you get a fat one

                        Good to know, thanks! Mark also states in his post about grass-fed meat that 4$/lb is standard, so 2.80$/is a great price!

                        I have friends who brought in their pig to be butchered and being experienced with getting animals butchered they found that this particular shop did not give them half of the bacon they were supposed to get from this certain pig. I can't remember the exact details but they switched butchers after that and have been satisfied with another one in Memramcook.

                          Well my meat is getting delivered to moncton anyway. I'll weigh it myself.
