Probably grade 4, maybe 3. I might even buy the whole damn cow. I'd like for the seller to also be the butcher. Doesn't matter where in AZ.

Anyone here know anyone who is reliable and safe for this new experience for me? I want someone who can really sit me down and walk me through the steps, possibilities, yields, etc. Ideally, a local farmer who has the aging facilities, or at least a local plant where I can sit and chat about prices and options.

I'm doing some searching on the Net, but I much prefer someone here who can recommend someone. I always believe in word of mouth advertising, supporting the locals, and being able to walk in with confidence.

Just curious, why?

Dace,

The overall price per pound is less than store-bought meat. But it is fresher, aged correctly, and you can pick and choose the cuts you want. Depending on the grade of beef you get, you don't get the steroids and such that cause all the fat, so it is more healthy for you, as well.

All that aside, I was looking for an entire cow, actually. I was going to throw a BBQ for the AFRCOM and AZShooting crews when the weather cools, just for shits and giggles.

BTT... still looking for alternative suggestions. No such thing as TMI.

IMO, you'd be better off getting a couple of cases of Natural Beef from one of the beef shops. That way you'd get your hormone free meat, and only the middle meat cuts. (Ribeyes and maybe Shortloins which you cut your T-bone from)

If you were to find someone who would sell you a side you'd only get one ribeye and Shortloin and be stuck with a lot of end cuts that are not ideal for the average consumer.
