Flipping through a stack of coupons -- which I never, ever do, so this was entirely fortuitous -- I came across this one.
Across the state line in the cute Franklin, Kentucky, is the kind of outfit that always draws me -- because I find meat-packing more interesting than is normal. Country Meats and Custom Home Foods specializes in USDA inspected beef, packaged in large amounts. It's the kind of place that, if I were driving past, I'd stop and get the details and the tour.
Some of the type is unreadable at this size, but the prices are great, if you 1) eat a lot of meat, 2) are in a position to spend $2000 on meat and 3) own a freezer. And if you don't, they can sell you one for $99.
Buying bulk beef usually means buying a program of different cuts, from ground beef to stew beef to steaks. (My family did it during the last big economic/oil crisis, which was also a beef crisis.) The "by the week" pricing is a pretty good idea -- once you get accustomed to it, or if you already budget this way. So 300 pounds of beef at $15 per week for 26 weeks would be only $390 -- presumably if you sruck with lower priced selections like ground beef and stew beef.
It seems like a good deal if you meet the criteria. And there's a $100 coupon good toward three of the plans. Anyone live in that direction, or know the operation, or have any experience?
