I'm absolutely amazed that I need another freezer, already have a chest and an upright stuffed with stuff but just realized I have a whole lamb and calf ribs and calf necks coming this week and no place to put it, think I've gone a little nuts with the ordering lately.

I've been looking on craigslist here and Seattle and there really is nothing out there, so I'm going the used appliance depot route hopefully, but the last guy said they hardly ever see freezers because people hold onto them until they die.:rolleyes:

When Turkey went on sale for $.24/lb... I thought I needed two new ones! Amazing how when i bought my chest freezer, I thought "AH! Finally, no more crunching for space!"
Then a couple months later, it simply wasn't big enough, and I bought my upright, and thought "Surely this will do the trick" and for a while, it did.
Now I find myself asking family if I can just stick this one pork roast, or this one beef brisket, or maybe just one turkey in their freezers. :rolleyes:

Good problem to have (not enough space)!! I am having trouble finding a decent priced source for ANY meat! I wish we had a co-op around here. No luck finding one so far! Sounds as though you are able to get great variety!

Ohio has got to be meat country or chicken country, they have to farm something there besides corn. You have to get real creative when looking for sources, don't be afraid to ask many different places if they will let you in on their orders All they can say is No.

we moved to an apartment and thought....nah, we won't need our 13.7 cu. foot freezer, so we sold it with the house.....first oops.

second oops was buying that stupid chest freezer because we didn't think and upright AND honey's work vehicle would fit comfortably in the garage.

and not realising that i AM five foot nothing and yes, you can fall into a chest freezer reaching for something on the bottom...

and, yes, you have to re organise it every so often, so that means emptying it out because i am NOT organised like natalie's freezer is...

so we got another freezer, an upright....and now we've got so many deals coming our way that i simply cannot resist.....i feed MAYBE a pound a day...for two dogs LOL

So, just bought a used freezer 21.something cubic feet, almost exactly like the one we gave away 3 yrs ago, go figure!

I actually love my chest freezer but they say they never get them in used to sell, only the uprights. Guess I'll be reorganizing as soon as it comes.

redspoo, it might be beneficial for you to join the Akron raw feeders co-op, it looks like it is an active group and even if it's not near you, they have so much info in their databases and files that are very helpful as to where you can find meat at great prices and not have to be a group to get it at those prices.

If I were you I'd give it a try. Good Luck!
