Beef Prices Soar

Thanks to the drought of 2012 and the resulting decline in the number of beef cattle, prices for beef have been climbing steadily for the past few months. As a result, my CSA beef has increased in price by 15%. For anyone who joins the CSA from this date forward, the cost will reflect this increase.

Now….about the price of gas…just kidding.
