Just tell the caterer that you have a source for the beef, and ask if he can work the numbers to show the cost of the meal without the beef cost.  Im assuming the beef is a gift, or you’ll be purchasing at a great discount?  I’m sure you can explain it, and he can work directly with your uncle or the company to get the beef to the kitchen.

mmm, you can ask but the caterer may or may not agree – i dont think you can insist though you can certainly look elsewhere if they say no

its quite an unusual request so youll just have to see what they say!!

My dad’s a farmer too, and I’m so excited we’ll be using meat from his and his friends’ farms! At least you know where it’s from and that you’re going to get good quality food 🙂

There’s no harm in asking your caterer and seeing what they say! What’s the worst that could happen?
