    Things your butcher will give you for free

    Pork rinds for delicious homemade pork scratchings.
    Suet for rendering into cooking fat. Often comes with quite a bit of meat still attached, for a free meal.
    Bones for stock.

    What else can you get for nothing?

    I have to pay for all of those.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I've never gotten anything for free from the butcher. They make pet food and sell bone broth, so there is little waste for them.

    My regular butcher doesn't give anything for free, but we went to the farm to pick up our grass fed beef this past Saturday, and I asked for bones for broth. She gave me a 50lb box of frozen marrow and knuckle bones, as she didn't have any freezer space for it and said I was doing her a favor. My butcher charges $2 per lb. YIPPEE!!!!

    Of course, my freezer is now packed.

    Dog bones, marrow bones, chicken livers
    plus he usally throws in a couple packs of sausages or cheaper cuts of meat free(last time was sausages, mince and beef shoulder steak)
    Might have something to do with me spending £300 odd quid though lol

    The Dairy farm i go to usally rounds my bill down -and often throws in stuff they have thats short dated.. Even got a whole rabbit a few weeks ago!
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
