Today we were quite busy. We took a trip to the butcher shop to pick up our meat. We took all the coolers and freezer bags we had and still needed more…so the children ended up packing some of the meat in plastic bags and putting it inside boxes. We froze on the way home with the air conditioner on high!
Here the boys are unloading the roller rack and packing our hamburger patties. We are very glad we opted to have 1/3 of our beef put into patties. They came out very nice…and are sure to be a convenience for me cooking.
They loaded the coolers on to a roller cart to take out to the trailer.
Almost ready to go…It took quite a while to pack over 600 lbs of meat.

After a big day, we finally get the last of the meat into the freezer. We still have a lot of rearranging to do, but at least we have our own beef, pork and lamb stocked at home in our freezers! And Wow..that is an amazing feeling to raise your own food! Anyone wanna buy some meat?!!
