    Freezer full o' meat!

    Shop Now
    Not sure if this is the right forum, but I just bought myself my first freezer (17 cu.ft) full of meat last night. We bought a package that's supposed to last a family of 3 or 4 for a year (we're only 2 - but eat a LOT of meat).

    We bought it from NutraFarms here in Canada. It was very expensive, but I'm hoping the quality and convenience of it will make it worth it (all free range and 'near' organic).

    I'm really pumped about it! It'll be nice to always have some meat on hand!

    Anyhow, just wanted to share!

    Fantastic!

    Soon after going Primal I bought a small apartment-sized chest freezer (7.2 cu) and it's probably the best purchase I've ever made. I couldn't imagine not knowing what I was going to eat a week or a month from now. It's an odd sense of security to know you have 2, 3, 4 months, a year's worth of meat. It's about time for me to buy again. Half a boar, about 90 lbs of meat, will half-fill the freezer for $225

    Not sure yet on the poundage of meat. It's supposed to be enough to feed a family of 3 or 4 for a year (20ish servings of meat per week...though serving size depends on the meat).

    It comes up to being pretty expensive at almost $4k for the year ($300ish per month), but it comes with a 17cuft standup freezer, and everything is individually packed. So I'm hoping the convenience is worth it.

    For next year, I'll likely try to see if I cna buy direct from farms and save a afew bucks.

    I'd be interested in knowing this as well.

    I was planning on taking it out of the freezer in the AM and leeting it thaw until dinner (what we usually do with our meat).

    I just throw it in the sink over night then put it in the fridge in the morning until dinner. If I forget to take it out the night before I just leave it in the sink while I'm at work, but this is more iffy through summer. I prefer the overnight method.
