Finally have the elk and venison from the co-op in my freezer! The transport was an hour late but I can't complain since it's run by volunteers, traffic here can be terrible, and the meat I got is cheaper than beef now.
Opened the elk hoping it would be 60 lbs. packaged in 4 bags like some people have gotten. No such luck! 59.97 lbs. of solidly frozen elk meat trim! That's 15" wide by 7" thick by 27" or so tall!!!
Didn't open the venison.
The 2 boxes fit nicely in the 5 cu. ft. freezer so yay!
Even bought myself a new toy just because of this order. A 22" butcher's saw! That way I can carve the blocks up into chunks that are easier to pick up for me and that will fit in the freezer for thawing.
Both freezers aren't completely full so there's still room to keep stocking up on lamb breast.
