The Philly Cow Share

Following closely after our Primal/Paleo Challenge I received an email from Jessica Moore from the PhillyCow Share. Asking if we had interest in a Cow Share. You might wonder what it is...well, it's similar to a crop share. You go in with others to buy high quality, local, grass-fed beef in bulk by splitting the purchase of a cow with other people. We at CrossFit believe in the Paleo-lifestyle and low and behold, Jessica had them fresh as can be...Yes, they just stepped off the farm. This Cow, grass fed since it came off it's mothers milk came from a family owned farm, straight to a family owned butcher and then delivered directly to our door at CrossFit KoP! I posted a blurb on the blog to get a gauge of interest shortly after hearing about the prospect, it was ON! We had enough interest to buy a cow and a half. Click here to see the pricing.

It was delivered looking like this - Yep, that's JB getting his 2 shares.
Cate and I helped carry in the extra shares for the CrossFitters to arrive at 4:30PM.

An 1/8 of a share was two boxes measuring 13" x 13" x 8" and enough to fit in an empty standard size freezer.

And the meat, well it speaks for itself, it was AMAZING!

Here are few tips on cooking Grass Fed Beef:
Grass Fed Beef has less fat and less water so cook at lower temps, you can use regular beef recipes but cut the heat back by 25 degrees F. They defrost faster and when seasoning make sure to use less salt.

Thank you Philly Cow Share!
We will hopefully be making another delivery soon, to contact Jessica her email is
