Not sure where you are but when I was in California we bought our meat from a place called Cash-n-Carry. It's a restaurant supply. The meat was really cheap and fair quality. Here in Iowa we get some meat from a place called Hawkeye Foods. Same type of place but the quality isn't the best. Im a painting contractor. I actually drive around in the country here in Iowa and hand out cards and talk to potential customers. I've traded my work for sides of beef, whole hogs and once I painted a garage for 30 dressed chickens. Maybe you have a talent or items you could trade? Good luck!
