It was time for a Meat Adventure. We fueled up the Mad Meat Genius Bus and pointed it in the direction of Freedom California. We were on a mission to visit the Freedom Meat Lockers. This was not our first visit. It is located about 15 minutes south of Santa Cruz. Freedom Meat Lockers is a huge facility. They process all meat on the premise. This includes sausage, bacon, hams and every cut of meat imaginable. It is a bustling hub of meat activity. The hardest part of visiting Freedom Meat Lockers is choosing what to buy. We limited ourselves to only one ice chest. We also had orders from the Great White Hunter to pick up a 50 dollars sausage sampler. It was fun walking down the sausage case and just ordering one of everything. Once our order was filled the clerk comped us some ice to insure a safe journey home.
Driving to and from Freedom is a lovely drive. If you come from highway 152 you will see a lot of commercial flower growers. When you leave, take Freedom Blvd and you will pass through beautiful apple orchards. There will be plenty of roadside fruit stands to stop and fuel up.
