Our three month CSA from 8 O’clock Ranch is now complete, and that looks to be the end of our foray into a meat CSA. At least for now.
This month, the meat was kept a bit more frozen, but I think it may have had more to do with the weather than anything else. Given last month’s defrosting, we just don’t want to take the chance in June, July and August.
Another issue is that we’re seeing some items repeated already (in one three month cycle). All three months we’ve had ground beef, pork shoulder steak, and two months we’ve had ground lamb and lambchops. For the price ($210 for 10lbs/month for three months) we’d like a little more variety.
This month, the CSA included:
- 1lb beef frankfurters
- 1lb ground beef
- 1lb ground lamb
- 2.9lbs leg of lamb
- 1.04lb beef rib steak
- .96lb lambchops
- 1lb pork stew meat
- 1.16 pork shoulder steak
Once again, we’re stuck trying to have to figure out how we’re going to share the leg of lamb with our friends. I don’t think it’s going to happen. I suggested to K asking them if they wanted us to buy them out, but they’re looking forward to the franks and ground lamb. Oh well. We’ll definitely eat for a week with the leg o’ lamb!
No farmer’s market this week for us as we were downstate all weekend. I haven’t even seen the garden in over a week now!
