Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Place to buy a whole cow near Raleigh, NC?

Looking to buy a whole cow in Raleigh and have it butchered and packaged. Anyone know of a local farmer that sells 100% grass fed whole cows? Thanks.

    I've been thinking about this same thing lately.. Either this or at least half a cow.. I'm on the MS Gulf Coast, though, so sorry I can't help much.

    this will lead you to producers in your area, from there you are on your own as far as packaging.  it may not help a lot but it is a start

    I just bought one from a farm in Eden, NC and it is some of the best meat I have ever tasted. I can pass along the info if you are interested. Probably an hour and a half from you.

    Thanks man - I actually found two places pretty close through that - but neither offered a whole cow. Great site though.

    Yes - please pm me. I am willing to drive a bit for a good price. I am also eager to deal directly with a farmer not a third party who takes a cut.

    I'm in Cary.  I've seen a few places in the triangle area that offer half and quarters, but not whole.

    I have found as big as a quarter...do you mind sharing where you found the half? I have a friend who wants to buy a whole cow with me...but if the best we can do locally is a half then so be it

    I can't find the original email, but I'll keep looking.  It was through one of these vendors:

    In fact, can't remember if I called or emailed....talked to several different ones and one regularly produced halfs.  I'll see if I can find the original info.
