Volume Orders of Local Beef
Some local farms offer large volumes of meat at discounted prices. Wheelview Farm in Shelburne, for example, offers 100 lbs including a variety of cuts for $599.95 (or about $6/lb) or 100 lbs of ground beef in 1-lb packages for $449.95 (or about $4.50/lb) if you pick it up yourself. They also ship, but it costs more. If you've got a chest freezer and a few like-minded friends, this is an easy way to get local meat at a good price.
