I know a lot of you order big amounts of food at a time. This is the first time from my co-op that I'm getting a large order. I just ordered 205lbs of varied meat and it cost nearly $400...

I'd say $2 per lb is about average for me. I will say the the turkey and the duck in this round are higher quality than I usually buy, so that was a bit more...

Anyhow how much do you order at a time and what does it generally cost you?

I should note that the day after I made my order I got a hit on CL for venison...and guess what? It filled my freezer, not sure what I'll do with 200 more lbs of food?!?!

I don't have a co op so the largest orders I make are through my grocery store but I usually get about 200 pounds at a time, last time I got 210 pounds and I think it was about $260, gizzards and heart being the most expensive.  Generally quarters are .60-.70/pound, necks are .79-1.29, beef heart I think went up to 1.49, organs are .79?/pound, gizzards were $2/pound.

Haha! When it rains it pours!

We've ordered 800 pounds at a time. We try to keep price per pound at or under $1.

I'm so jealous. My co-op doesn't have too many fun options as as you can see it's not exactly cheap...

Mine wasn't from a co-op, but the company delivers to different locations monthly. I ordered a little over 200 pounds for 180. Chicken, pork, bison and beef. Muscle, organ and bones. I only had the three dogs then and it lasted for 3-4 months. I will never do it again :P well I might, you never know.
It took all day and night to bag, re-freeze and shove in the freezer. I used the bathtub(no one uses it) to defrost everything. I'm glad no one came over because there was blood everywhere in there.:o

Wow you guys get really great prices. Chicken was the cheapest at .69 per lb. I also bought pancreas which was really expensive...

Then beef heart which is about $1.75 per lb...

I just bought another freezer so I can get bigger orders, plus I hate my chest freezer.  I have to buy from a few different suppliers to get the variety I want,  between all of them I figure I spend between $2 or $3 per pound, and I usually have to drive an hour to meet with them so add in the gas, nothing here is cheap.
