Do any of you order grass fed beef from your area ranchers? I was reading about the benefits of grass fed beef vs grain fed. I have never purchased meat this way.
order grass fed beef?
I bought organic grass fed beef from friends of a friend until they retired. They said it tastes best if the beef is finished on grain 3wks before slaughter. Now I get grass fed beef or pork from the farmers market. I feel better about eating the meat, knowing they animal has enjoyed its more natural diet and lived a better life. I do find that the quality of the meat does vary with the producer. One guy's meat is rather tough and anothers' is delicious. So definitely sample it before buying a big amount.
Since I posted this question I have talked to an acquaintence who says he has eaten grass fed for over a year now and he has health improvement to show for this change of eating.
