Where to find animal products from pasture-fed animals

Sunday, November 18, 2012

On popular request I wanted to pass on this very useful resource that includes a nationwide list of where to find pasture-fed animals locally and also lots of info on why pasture-raised animals produce better food.


You may find producers near you. Be prepared to planning ahead a bit if you want a turkey or a larger amount of something. It may even be worth it for many to buy an additional freezer or refrigerator. Many small producers will only raise and grow what they can sell in a local market. Some will ask you to pay for an animal or a share while they are still raising it. But the benefits are worth it. Many will give you and your children the opportunity to visit their farm so you can see how the animals are raised. Most of them deeply care about their land and their animals and also about the people they serve and will be happy to talk to you.
There is nothing better than to know the person who is growing/raising your food. emoticon

    Eat Wild is a great resource. Another good website is: http://www.localharvest.org/ . These 2 websites are how I got started sourcing local, quality food sources. Another place is to check out our local farmer's market. The meat farmers there are more than happy to discuss their practices and often will have more options for people willing to commit to buy all or part of an animal.

    I think so many pesticides, growth hormones, and on and on has lead to a very sick nation. Cancer, diabetes, many of these illnesses are not caused by man's choice but what is put in food today. My parents are 83 and 90 and still grow their own garden, don't use any pesticides or any other garbage we find in food today.
