Grass-Fed Beef Buy

Around these parts we emphasize proper nutrition as much as we do intense exercise. In one’s journey towards better health, it is wise to include beef from grass-fed cows. Here’s what Charles Poliquin and Mark Sission have to say about grass-fed beef. Bottom line: cows were meant to eat grass, and beef from grass-fed cows tastes better and is healthier for you.

In that vein, Emily Anderson and I will be organizing a beef buy through Wolf Creek Farm. By purchasing through a cow-share like this, you get a significant discount on stellar quality beef and support a great local business. Here’s the breakdown:

Pricing (assuming we order an entire cow): $5.38 per lb

Portion Options:

  • 1/2 cow (about 190 lbs)
  • 1/4 cow (about 95 lbs)
  • 1/8 cow (about 47.5 lbs)
  • 1/16 cow (about 23.75 lbs)

Each share yields a variety of cuts, including ground beef, steaks, organs, etc., and the meat should be available sometime in late-November or early-December. Please comment on this post (or email chrisg@crossfitcharlottesville.com) if you are interested, and include the amount of beef you would like.
