We've been buying grassfed beef sides for a few years, but have always gone to a USDA facility. We get the standard organ meats (heart and liver), but have not been able to obtain beef hooves and other cool stuff, like glands. I may be able to... (more)

Get the tongue, and tripe if you like it. People do sometimes eat the lights (lungs) of sheep, don't know about cow. Calves' brains are traditional, not sure about full grown steer, but likely prohibited anyway due to mad cow. Get the tail cut up... (more)
