Hi Laura. I'm happy to talk more about the mechanisms of buying with you. I just went in on half a hog with another person (1/4 each), and I don't suspect there will be extra shares from that, but if my share just seems too big I'd be happy to sell some. In any case, I'm glad to talk with you about how to make your own arrangements for whatever kind of meat you're after. My email is nicole DOT howard AT gmail DOT com. We can xchange phone numbers via email if that's easier.
