Does anyone have a good place to get grass fed meats? Not just beef, but pork and chicken as well?July 11, 2011 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #451585
Dick Jensen at the Flying J farm sells grass-fed beef. Chickens and pigs are omnivores, so ‘grass-fed’ isn’t really applicable.July 11, 2011 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #451586
Between whole foods and bluescreek farm you should be covered.July 11, 2011 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm #451587
North Market Poultry & Game has grass fed bison as well as pastured chickens. I’ve seen grass fed/pastured chickens and cow at farmer’s markets, too.July 11, 2011 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #451588
Thanks!July 11, 2011 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #451589
Not sure how much it might or might not matter to you, but many grass-fed cows are ‘finished’ on a few weeks worth of a corn diet to improve the marbling of the meat. If that’s a concern, it’s probably best to ask.July 11, 2011 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #451590
Up the Lane Farms at the Worthington Farmers’ Market is also a good source for grass-fed beef.July 11, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #451591
I’ve been doing the bulk of my meat shopping lately at the Worthington Farmer’s Market, between Up the Lane, Speckled Hen, and the other vendors there, it’s been a good source.
After the farmer’s market season, in addition to the other suggestions, Mosley’s Meat Market in Hilliard is a good source. Most of it is “pastured”, not solely grass fed, but it’s good quality – especially their pork.July 11, 2011 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #451592July 12, 2011 1:02 am at 1:02 am #451593
They have weekly specials on grass fed meat at Ray Ray’s BBQ.July 12, 2011 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #451594
I’m trying to follow the paleo diet, so yes, I meant pastured piggies and chickens, and I’d preferably like beef finished on grass all the way, but mostly grass fed is still better than not at all! These look like great places to start looking. Thanks, undergrounders!December 24, 2011 11:20 am at 11:20 am #451595
What restaurants in Columbus serve grass-fed beef? Ive investigated S&W’s, Top, Clarmont, Hyde Park, and none of them do. Skillet only serves ground beef from Flying J in their burgers, but wheres an honest rib-eye in Cbus?December 24, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #451596
The awesome Alana will sometimes charge more for corn-fed cow than pastured. Did I mention that she is awesome?December 13, 2012 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #451597
