Buying direct from a farmer comes with many advantages, but if you’ve never bought like this before, you may not know where to start!

Experience better meat, and make the switch to better food that directly supports the farmer!

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)

This means you’ll get all the cuts of a cow, but for one flat rate, instead of paying the extra retail markup.

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