Don't Have a Cow?

March 3, 2011

I want to point out a type of small business that is coming up on the horizon that is so utterly green that you might want to chew it over.  It's called a "Meat Share."  If you're vegetarian, please look the other way while we discuss this interesting aspect of carnivorism. 

A "Meat Share" is when a group of interested meat enthusiasts get together and buy  a cow, then draw lots for shares, allowing a fair and equal distribution of the meat products to all participants. 

If the organizers are careful in their selection, this also allows them to search out locally bred and organically raised, grass-fed, leaner but still tender healthier cuts of beef at a better price than one can generally get by shopping in the best stores.  Imagine getting the greenest beef possible without the overhead cost and carbon footprint. 

The article that I read (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/22/AR2011022202701.html) about a Washington, DC duo wanting dry-aged, locally produced, grass-fed healthier beef, set out to procure it for themselves.  They needed other participants and set out to gather them, making it fair for all involved. In doing so, they've educated themselves and the other participants about farm production techniques, best practices in butchering and procurement and even beef cooking techniques.    And they got bargain prices on highest quality beef to boot.   

Last night as I walked through the meat department at a certain national warehouse store, I checked out the prices on some of the cuts.  Even here, the "Meat Share" idea had merit as their prices would have resulted in savings here. 

We're not suggesting this idea can replace the big grocery chains right now.  But it's an idea for a small side business that provides a great benefit both financially, health-wise and in green living, too.   

And if you're a vegetarian, this is a reminder that it's time to consider the flip side: which Community Share Association will you participate in this summer?  The blossoms will be on the vine before we know it and Greenification is in the air.
