Where to buy grass fed meat

Where to buy grass fed beefThere is a growing number of people asking where to buy grass fed meat.  When I want the best meat I go to my freezer, but this may not be the case for you and many others.  This has been a big issue for many that can’t raise their own or don’t have access to someone that can raise it for them.

The good news is that there are becoming more and more people raising quality, natural and nutrient dense food.  A great place to start is with the Weston A Price organization.  They are a non profit group that is focused on educating people about healthy foods and linking those that are searching with those that are producing.  The Weston A. Price foundation is one of the best organizations that link farmers to consumers.  They are a non profit group that has no ties to government or big corporations.  Check them out at the link provided here.

Buying direct from the farmer

We raise our own wonderful beef for our family and a few others.  I know there are a lot of people searching for the kind of beef we raise but can’t find a trusted source for it.  If you live near us in North central PA we would be glad to talk to you and see if we could be a source for you.  Check out our store for product information.

Mail order grass fed beef

Having trouble finding a local farmer that you can buy directly from or not sure about many of the online sites selling meat?  I can understand how overwhelming and confusing this is.  There are so many and do they produce the quality you are looking for.  As I looked at the vast array of online sites marketing grass fed meat a few stood out to me that I would trust.

Try Butcher Box

best place to buy meat online

Of the many mail order meat company’s that are online I really liked what I saw at the getbutcherbox.com site.  It was easy to call and talk with someone knowledgeable about grass fed meat and the products are very high quality as well as reasonably priced.  They work with a group of farmers dedicated to producing totally grass fed and finished beef.  I like the fact that they focus on working with farmers that understand how grass fed operations should work rather than organic certification.  The folks at Butcher Box understand that certified organic doesn’t always mean grain free or totally grass finished. They work on a monthly subscription program where you receive a box of prime grass fed meat on a monthly or bi monthly schedule.  This is great if you are going for quality more than quantity and you don’t have to keep a large amount in your freezer.  A box cost $129.00 and has 15-20 meals based on 6-8 oz. portions.  The price includes shipping asQuality online meat from Butcher Box well.  They also provide pastured chicken and pork in the box if you choose.  Get all your meat from one convenient place and not worry about harmful GMO, hormones, antibiotics, or pesticides.

Vital Choice              Quality meat by Vital Choice

If you are looking for safe, natural, sustainable seafood as well as beef and chicken you may want to check out vitalchoice.com as they have very high standards for quality and purity.  They make sure their meat is free from harmful chemicals and toxins like mercury.  Their beef is certified organic but most importantly it is totally grass fed and finished.  They offer a heritage meat chicken that is raised to their high standards as well.  They aim to be “beyond organic” so they chose meat that they know they can trust from people on the same mission as theirs.  Some perks to mentions is they offer free shipping on orders over $99 and first time customers get a 10% discount.  I’m hoping to try their Alaskan salmon soon.

I would like to hear about your experience with finding high quality, nutrient rich, sustainable food so please leave a question or comment below.

Thanks and God Bless!

    Nice post Jason. It is defiantly hard to know exactly where your meat comes from when you buy it from the store, even if it says organic or grass fed. It is nice to know that there are companies out there that are knowledgeable about their product and that want to provide quality healthy meat to the consumer. Thank you for sharing these sites I will have to check them out since I unfortunately do no live near PA.

      Good to see you have an interest in knowing where your food comes from ben. Hope you can find a source you can trust and support. It took me a while to find a few online companies that were not just using the “organic food” trend for marketing but were focused on producing a safe, healthy, quality, and sustainable products.

    Jason. Good job. You have a Niche that’s very important with a wealth of information available for you to work with. It’s obviously helpful to have the motivation you do and the daily contact with a lively hood you enjoy so much. I like the straight across menu with a few pass over / drop down items. That’s something my sight needs. Also the picture for your “About Me” is great. There’s the motivation and your “helpers”. I didn’t try to count your internal links, but you’ve done well with those too. Best of luck with the store. You should stay busy.

      Thanks for your comment and glad you liked the site! You are right that there is so much info about what meat is safe, nutritious, and enjoyable to eat and I have been researching this for several years as well as learning by growing it ourselves. We have really sorted out a lot of poor info and held onto what really wroks.

    Great post. So many people do not know where their food comes from. Beef cattle pumped full of antibiotics and growth hormone in order for it to be cheap in the supermarket.
    Finding a good supplier of grass-fed meat is so important. Since I’ve moved country, I’m still on the lookout for a reliable supplier.

    My friend was actually the one who introduced vital choice since he knows that when it comes to food I am always looking for high standards of quality and purity. I am originally from Uruguay and we are used to eating a lot of red meat. The fact that their beef is certified organic is such a huge plus for me. Best meat I ever had.

Vital Choice really has some of the highest standards for their food. I would like to ask you what the biggest difference is from the meat you find here compared to the meat you had in Uruguay? Thanks and God bless!

    Hello,

    My name is Thuy and would like to know where would I purchase your great products. I live in Philadelphia, so I would need a pickup point. I’m looking to purchase a 1/4 of beef, some chicken and pork as well. The food they sell in the city markets have an awful smell to them, and I no longer have a desire to continue purchasing mass produced, chemical injected meats anymore. Please help

    My wife and I have been wanting to eat healthier, and I think that one way we could do that is with grass fed beef. I’m glad that you talked about some different ways that we could get grass fed beef, including mail orders. I think that being able to try out a few different options to get some high quality beef would be good for us, and give us the best shot at getting what we’re looking for!
