    Buying from local farmers


    Since I moved I don't have the same access to local farmers like I used to (until I have a car again) so I'm thinking to buy grass-fed meats online. Has anyone had experience with this? I'm looking for bison and beef primarily.

    You are correct. Grass fed...no hormones...specially raised cattle that yield red meat at 98-99% fat free! I eat 8-16 oz of this stuff daily bulking or cutting. Check out www.skinnybeef.com. If interested I can personally get you 10% off your order.

    http://www.northstarbison.com/ they will ship, but I'm almost sure you'll find a local dealer for bison, a bit more spendy thou.

    Skinnybeef is leaner than bison by the way...1 gram of fat per oz!

    It's a good one both for finding farmers and learning about the local market.

    Localharvest.org is really good too. Found a couple I bought from there plus gives the low down about CSAs and you can find pretty thorough buyer reviews.

    Well since I'm a farm boy from N WI, I'm lucky enough to have a ton of grass fed beef almost out my front door. Due to the high cost of grain, a large majority of the farms surrounding me can only use grass or hay/alfalfa. Huge milking farms use feed[grain] with a mixture of grass/hay/alfalfa. Same with our 2 local bison ranches.

    Ricky, arent you in NJ?

    tank - interesting how that works out that it would be MORE expensive to feed grain. There's a lot of space in south jersey, a couple small places in northern but its very mountainous. Better for hunting. Mmmmm venison.

    Its the larger milk producers that have to feed grain. Smaller farmers that mainly raise beef for butchering will feed hay/alfalfa. This time of year when its -25 with the wind chill, the cattle are in side. Some producers ''may'' feed some grain, buts its rare. Yes, the cost of grain is costly, due to the competive market for corn, making ethanol. ITS HUGE!! Farmers are plowing up hay/grass fields to put in corn, which in turns robs other ground of valuable nutrients/water. They put in huge arrigation systems robbing the water tables. Our farm,we rely on mother nature for water. But our beef/chickens etc are pretty much organic.
    Venison is popular here as well, yet our population is getting small every year also.

    I know a lot about the agricultural effects on American soil and it makes me irate. A big part of the reason I'm so interested in shifting my attention to local grass-fed livestock. I've also cut grains/wheat from my diet as well. Learned something new today. Thanks.
