I was just curious where you all get your grass fed beef? Do you order it online? If so, which company in your opinion seems to have the best product for the money?

Thanks!!

I buy mine from a local butcher who has become convinced that it is a food worth carrying in his store.  I believe Don has a good source for online grassfed meat.

Here in Winnipeg, we have a couple of meat shops that have grass fed beef and bison, also elk. Prices range around $5.50 & 6.50 a lb.

I try to buy locally when possible. Prices run a bit higher than in the supermarket. In a pinch or emergency I can buy buffalo at one of the supermarkets down the street (we have three in a one-mile radius). Prices run about $6.00USD/lb. It's not bad. Not as good as the local stuff though. I also buy locally raised turkey when I can, and hope to get some lamb soon as well.

If you cannot find a local supplier or can't afford the ones closest to you, then check your supermarket. In my opinion, it's better to make a conscious choice to buy commercial grass-fed bison or buffalo than grain-fed beef, if you can do so.

Good luck, I hope you find someone who can help you out. Grass-fed is so much better than grain-fed, it's amazing! (Though braising the roasts without turning them into shoe leather takes some experimentation! )

Only just today I heard about grass-fed beef being sold at the Saturday morning (9-12) farmer's market held at Casey Farm on 1-A south of Wickford, in Saunderstown, for those of you in the Rhode Island area...
The beef is raised on Jamestown at the Watson farm, which is open to visitors, if I got the info right.  Both Casey and Watson farms are old-style working farms and something something historical registry somethingorother...

Wisconsine Area: We have found grass fed beef, bison, and elk, and lamb at our Farmers Market. I was wondering if you may have one in your city also.  You could contact your local Chamber Of Commerce.  There are several vendors that sell rabbit and quail also.  the lamb can be as much as $8 a pound to $4, depending on the vendor.   Good Luck.

good morning everyone: I went to the web site Don had for purchasing meat.   This is a great site, and I have so much more information. http://www.eatwild.com really helped me find the location of local ranchers, who raise the meats that are bennies for me and my family.   The price per pound is even less than the local markets.  Thanks Don.
