What is the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of approx. 40 lbs. of meat that has been frozen for 7+ years?

I've moved into a farmhouse with a deep freeze and the above contents within. I abhor the idea of carting this to the dump (and so adding this to a landfill). Since the property has 40+ acres, I could also allow this to defrost and bury it, leave it for foragers (?), etc.. The few options that occur to me all seem equally crazy/uncomfortable/dangerous. I'd really appreciate any advice as to how to dispose of this in the least harmful way. Thanks.
