How can I solve this problem?

I have been looking for grass-fed meat for a loooong time. I finally found a great source, they ship sous-vide grass-fed meat at a decent price. The thing is : they only sell 7 and 9kg packages. I live in a small house with my parents, my sister and my two brothers : we don't have enough room to store that amount of meat. What are my options?

I see three options: 1) find another source, 2) meat-share with someone in your community, or 3) buy a small chest freezer and find a corner to tuck it into (if our New York paleo friends can make one fit, you can too!)

Well, as far as storage goes, buying a freezer or two for the garage is the obviously answer ;). However I have another option you could try that worked for me. First find out where all the local farmers are that produce grass fed meat using the this great internet thingy. Then check through their sites find your favorites (probably based on price) and start calling them (please keep reading, I know this sounds super obvious so far, but I promise I may have good advice yet).

Most of the reasonably priced local farmers will indeed require you to buy in bulk. Sometimes the require you to buy a portion of an animal or like you've experienced a certain about of food by weight. However I've also found that some farms will supply meat for a local store or market more frequently. Therefore you can place your orders through the store with the farm and make smaller orders because you are partnering with someone else, a frequent vendor per se. So just make sure to ask the farms you call if they have such a customer that you can place orders through.

I personally order my meat from Nicky Farms via the Sheridan Fruit Market in Portland Oregon. This way I don't have to make 100 lb orders and can get reasonably priced pastured meats and offal, I just have to call a week in advance. Maybe I just have a lucky set up here, but I'd imagine there are others that do this if you knew where and how to look.

Good luck!

Have a giant beef jerky making weekend for anything that won't fit in your allocated space in the freezer/fridge. Hamburger jerky is pretty easy to make -in the oven. http://wellnessmama.com/2201/how-to-make-ground-beef-jerky/
