Boosters Crab Feed - 10 Silent Items
Where's the Beef? 100 Lbs of Lafayette Lindberg Beef!
Share this Mats family's local organic beef among a few friends! Seen grazing in the lush, rolling hills of Lamorinda hills, you’ll find some of the best steer around. Black Angus Hereford are all-natural, locally raised at the Lindberg’s ranch, and grass fed. These cattle are not sold to a feed lot, but rather taken to a certified “humane” butcher. This quarter is approximately 100 pounds of mixed cuts of beef and ground, individually cut, packaged, and delivered frozen to the ranch in Lafayette for pick up. Don't worry about freezer space, once it's packed up, it doesn't take up as much as you think!
