I've lost most of my beef connections since moving off the farm and across the country. If you want incredibly lean meat, then look for mostly grass fed Scottish Highland beef that is finished (last month) on corn. Then you want it dry aged for a month. These guys (Hemlock Highlands) might finish and hang the beef correctly, but certainly do you due diligence.

Go to your local county fair and support the 4-H/FFA auction.

Come over and go riding with me....I'll send you home with as much grass fed beef as you can carry on the bike .

Someone on your side of the mtns will be raising one. I'd definalty go look at the operation first though to get an idea of how it is raised.

Well, of course, Olson's Meats there on SR 164 just west of Enumclaw is near you and reliable. If you want something more exotic, consider Eat Wild with links to many farms.

I guess you could split it with somebody ahead of time. Hard to find people around anymore though that want that much meat at once and have the means to store it. Most people think meat only comes in plastic wrapped packages with styrofoam trays.
