Ready for Some Red Meat!

We made a big purchase this weekend and are one step closer to buying a 1/4 cow. It's been a good 6 months now that I've had my eye on getting some grass-fed beef from a local farmer, the only thing holding us back was money. Money to buy another freezer for said beef and money to actually buy the meat.

But now we are one step closer to that goal!

We bought a freezer! And the best part about this freezer, is that we scored it off of Kijiji (similar to Craigslist for those who don't know) for only $150!

I've been keeping an eye out for a good deal but nothing has ever come up. We wanted it to be a chest freezer, big enough to hold a 1/4 cow plus chickens, newer so it didn't suck energy and a good price. Sunday morning I checked Kijiji and there was this one. It was posted Saturday night and we snagged it up before 3:00pm the next day. Go us!

So the freezer is purchased and set up in our cold room. Next step, 1/4 cow baby!


  1. Yay! What a great investment! I love our half chest freezers (we expanded to two a couple of years ago) and have adapted my cooking style to take advantage of more freezer space. Enjoy!

    (I removed my prior comment, because I meant to post it on the protein bite post. oops!)

  2. Thanks! I'm awfully excited about it. :D I cannot wait to fill it with wonderful healthy homegrown foods.

    And I deleted your comment completely, in case you were wondering.
