I have a local Co-op group here in AZ, and I just got my first order from an Oma's Pride distrubitor that is about 45 minutes away from me. I do keep a watch for sales from my grocery store and check in often to see what they hapen to have. I just found pork necks last week for .99 a lb so I syocked up on them.

Grocery store for me but it's kind of discount meat. I get a bag of chicken necks (clear produce size bag) for $4. Those are good for bone but don't have a lot of meat on them. At the same store I can sometimes get chicken necks and backs together (lots of meat) for half off. 8-10 pieces for around $6. Now that's a good deal!

At another store I buy in the frozen section their discount meat. Sometimes they even get a steak lol But usually it's chicken thighs and necks plus some organ meat and ground pork or beef. I usually get it for around a dollar a pound but will pay more for a treat.

That's for posting that Redyre! I'm wanting to switch to raw and that place is pretty close!

I emailed Blue Ridge Beef, now I am waiting to hear back from them too.
Looks like a good place, there is a place not too far from me either.

Well then ladies, we need to have Lunch and Blue Ridge Beef day. I can haul probably half a ton in my van. I usually get between 250 and 300 lbs at a time.

I have one rear passenger seat in it now. I don't need to resupply, so just PM and let me know what day you want to go.

Redyre, how much do you pay for each case?

For how much you pay total and how much you get, it seems VERY good prices.

Oh, definitely! I'm going to be tied up with finals soon, but I can go anytime after May 4th!

you will have to talk to them there about prices.

My last order was
3 box chicken with bone (90 lbs)
3 box 30***37; fat ground beef (90 lbs)
1 box organ meat mix (30 lbs)
1 box tripe (30 lbs)
1 box knuckle bones (30 lbs)

270 lbs, I paid 135.00. Bones are less expensive. Tripe is more expensive. I don't really keep up with the per pound price any more...

I've been buying from grocery stores, but today in my frantic search for something more unusual I ran into a guy who was *also * looking for raw bones for his dog and having no luck. He told me that there's a small butcher/meat packing company not too far away, so I'm going to pay them a visit and get some rec bones and rabbit if they have it.

Wish I had a place like Blue Ridge nearby. Red, how did you come across them?
