    Whole pigs and cows

    Shop Now
    Ok, so my father-in-law always raises a pig for us and we are going to be getting it soon! So excited, this is our second one and it is all so good! But I want to ask for all the "guts". Except I don't know what I specifically want and want to tell him..., obviously I want the liver but what else do I want? Oh, and I am asking for bones too... For yummy bone broth! Which I made my first batch of, that will be finished today! I am also waiting to get a cow.... Grassfed meats are sooo expensive around here! So I am buying a whole cow to cut back on price. But I won't get that until spring

    Thanks! We have a huge deep freeze in our cellar. So I'm pretty excited about this

    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

    I get a bag of lard with mine. With large enough pieces I make "lardo" and render the rest. Lots of on line instructions.

    Lets see I ended up asking for the brain, heart, liver and kidney and bones for bone broth... I was basically told I could get the organs but prob not the bones...
