Grass Fed Steer Share From Spring Lake Farms

  • Dec 1, 2012 · 3:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Spring Lake Farm is going to provide us with a steer on December 1st. Spring Lake has 2 great websites and Ulla Kjarval, the farmer's daughter also writes a farming & food blog with several recipes to complement the meat her parent's raise.

Our beef has been completely grass-fed. Ingi Kjarval, our farmer, has been cross-breeding his cattle to help build a smaller, sturdier steer that does well in upstate NY on grass. Our cows are part Simmental, Hereford, Angus & Highland.

Each share is going to be 1/10 of the steer and about approximately 30 pounds of beef and beef parts. The steer had a hanging weight of 350 lbs and we will split as evenly as possible. The cost of each share is $194.92 - $183.75 for the beef, $5.67 paypal fee, $5.50 for delivery & meet-up fees. If you want more than 30lbs, please RSVP for yourself +1,2,3,4, etc. For example, if you want 90lbs -- RSVP for yourself plus 2 guests. Your payment will be (3x$194.92) = $584.76

If you want half a share: you can use our meatshare forum to find someone to share with or feel free to message me or I will pair people up on a first come first served basis.

Also, I spoke to Ingi and Temma.  They have an additional 1/2 steer if interested.


There should be more available if we are oversubscribed.

    As usual, the beef from Spring Lake Farms is rich, dark, and dense. Almost a different animal than CAFO beef. Some of the ground was very pungent when cooked but tasted great. A piece of flank was super tender but also a bit smelly. A picky eater might object but the flavors are rich and excellent. They must have some serious grass up there! Packaging and cuts are ace as always.
