6lb ground (burgers, chili, whatever) $10lb
4 steaks $18lb

What does it taste like?

Closest thing I can say is beef. Maybe venison might be a better comparison. But you wouldn't know if someone told you it was beef, just can't overcook it or it will get chewy and then doesn't taste the best.

looks pretty lean. i imagine cooking it beyond medium rare would be bad

id like to try it

They are setting up a small storefront at their house for order pickup and random purchases, they are turning part of the cattle barn into an enclosed space. They do want to ship with online sales, When that happens I'll let you know, they said today hoping by spring or early summer.

Right on, it's about 45min outside out STL in Illinois. But if you travel again give me a heads up I can get you some and my work has an office across the street from the airport so would be simple to deliver to you.

For that cost why not just get beef?

Healthier, local farm, my family knows the family who owns/runs the farm and it's different.

We don't eat a lot of beef, I like the idea that I know where the meat comes from and technically it's organic. My family butchers a few cows a year but we stopped butchering with family because we just couldn't use a half a cow anymore. If I wanted to I could get a side of beef from family farm (black angus) but we just don't use it, so much ground beef just gets old so we stopped getting it.

It sounds like such a pain to deal (overcooking) with but I've had worse. We eat more venison than beef when it comes to ground stuff but for steaks it's hard to beat beef.

I would indefinitely like to try some different meats but dumb expensive here.
