Full Freezers

I made the trip back to Mayes Meats today to pick up the lambs and Kune Kune pig we had butchered. Over 100 pounds of lamb and almost 50 pounds of pork are now residing in our freezers. We were extremely pleased with the pig. Almost completely raised on pasture with a few table scraps, acorns and an occasional handful of alfalfa, the end product was lean and delicious. We a very excited to get our first litter here and be able to offer some for sale.
In addition to the meat, I have over 30 pounds of lambs bones to cook up into a rich stock and about 10 pounds of pig fat to render into lard!
