Around us its $3.50-4.50 but I have heard some prices for places around the U.S. such as $8.50-10. Wow that's great that you have a good business relationship with them. We make our own so I am lucky there :P
I'm not sure. I know that it's up higher than usual. It varies though depending on how the cuts are. And since we've been buying from our buyer for over 20 years. Longer than I've been alive we get a discount.
