My husband signed up for a cow share with about 5 people total. A farmer met them all and they took turns picking packages of beef. It was a really great experience and buying a 1/5th of a cow and storing it in the average person's freezer is doable. I've heard from people who buy 1/2 a cow that you need a lot of storage for all that meat. This is our haul. There are some beef bones, ground beef, two roasts, cubed beef, and a steak. I have the steak thawed for dinner tonight. Both of the roasted have already been cooked and several of the ground beef packages have been used too.
