Sam the burger I use was walking around here on the farm a few months ago. The sausage I buy a few hogs each year and have them processed as well.
I give the kids all the meat they use as well. My Dad and his second wife get some too. I often trade burger to friends for fish and chicken. I have two that raise each.
I have a small local locker process all my meat. The owner and I where in Nam together. So I am pretty sure I am getting my meat back.
