    What is the going price for ground beef?? Say, I was going to sell several 2 lb. packages to my neighbor........or trade for something, what is its worth? Its mostly grassfed, with the cow getting a ration of grain twice a day. As natural as possible. Any idea??

    In my area, about $1.25 - $1.75 lb. That's farm fresh, not supermarket. :)

    My friend who direct markets her own beef off of her farm sells hers for $2 lb. Raised as grassfed and fed no grain.

    Thanks all. We have been trading out a trio of milking does in exchange for our homegrown beef with a friend, at the rate of $2.00 a lb. on the meat. Good to hear I'm in the right bracket. Another friend had asked about buying some and I wanted to be sure before I over-charged or under-charged. Thanks again!
