Go for it!

If you can manage that, it would be wonderful.

It's hard to describe the difference in flavors between commercial meat and natural meat; not everyone seems to notice, but many people do. I find that commercial meat has a flatter taste with chemical or metallic notes. Natural meat is richer, often sweet, sometimes with herbal notes if the critter was grass-fed.

For anyone considering a freezer for stocking food, I highly recommend the book Big Food, which explains how to stock freezer and pantry space. You have to make sure that you will use everything you buy. We are still learning about that, but getting better. That pair of recipes I posted the other day was inspired by sticking my head in the freezer to see what we had that would feed 6 people! It's kind of fun when you have learned what kind of things you like to make, so you know what to keep on hand, and then you can throw together something interesting on relatively short notice.
