Buying An Eighth, Quarter or Side!

There are many ways to buy meat from a farmer, however most will sell their meat in terms of a full ‘side”, half “side” or quarter ‘side” (1/8th of a cow)

However, you’ll get more than just steaks… there’s a whole range of delicious cuts and meals waiting for you!
