And the butcher sent me extra fat knowing that I wanted to render it for soap. The butcher that owns the meat market in town is also my neighbor and owns the property next door. I was amazed to hear that he actually will give me all the pig fat or beef tallow I want because he actually has to pay to have it disposed of. I guess no one uses it any more.
My freezers are pretty well bursting at the seams. Lots of breakfast sausage, pork burger, pork chops , pork steaks, pork ribs and pork roasts. It should round out our meat supply along with chicken, rabbit, fish, and turkey. All coming right off this farm. And plenty of veggies to go with that. Now a deer should pretty well finish it out for the year.
We have a few more chickens that O Wise One wants to butcher and then our meat supply is done other than venison. The chickens are older ones that have quit laying and will go in jars and be used for broth.
