Prime grass-fed beef

6 Sep

As some of you may already know, there’s absolutely no comparison between grass-fed beef and the usual stuff you buy in the supermarket.  Humanitarian and environmental factors aside (and there are plenty to consider), from a pure culinary standpoint, the difference in taste is phenomenal.

If you live in the Austin area or have access to it, check out ATX MeatShare, a business in Austin, Texas, started by my friend, Benjamin Palmer.

Here’s a little lingo from the web site.

What is ATX Meatshare?

ATX meatshare facilitates group purchases of grass-fed, humanely raised animals from central Texas for residents of the greater Austin, TX area.

Why is this a good deal? 

Grass-fed meat is terribly expensive compared to conventional meat, there is no way around it.

ATX Meatshare aims to even that equation by allowing a group of passionate individuals to obtain high-quality meat at fantastic prices.

When you buy a whole animal you pay a set price for the whole animals so the price/# is the same for EVERY cut ranging from organs, ground meat and up to fine steak cuts like NY strip and tenderloin.

However these prices are usually reserved if you purchase at least 1/4 of animal, which most folks don’t have the freezer space / cash / tenacity to obtain. ATX Meatshare allows you to buy a more manageable amount of meat while still obtaining the same price as if you were purchasing a quarter of a beast.

There’s a lot more information on the web site.  Click on the link above if you want to read more.
