If you are like most people and have a limited budget but still want to incorporate quality meats in your regular meal routine, you may find it more practical to purchase your meat in bulk. Provided of course that you have the available freezer space, this is a great way to be cost effective and have loads of meat available at the ready.
If you can source and have the space, it’s more economical to buy a half pig, whole lamb and quarter of a cow. It might seem crazy, but then you always have meats available. This way you are always ready to make pates, sausages and a good Sunday roast!
You can speak with your local butcher for more information on the options available in your area. There are also countless recipes available to ensure variety in your meals. With all this meat at your disposable, you’ll want to be certain to have properly sharpened knives. If you don’t necessarily have quite enough freezer space available to accommodate such large quantities of meat, perhaps you can consider diving up the meat and the cost with a friend or two.
