Where to get it:
We've gotten old-fashioned meat from the Windsor Dairy and also from LargaVista Ranch south of Colorado Springs. All good. And much cheaper than at Whole Paycheck.
We really like Natural Homestead Beef or Silva's Highlands for beef or pork. They are local and you have to meet them at the farmer's market go pick up. Westword Award 303-818-6564
Another grass-fed beef and pastured-pork producer 5280 Beef just emailed me. If you know anything about them, let me know.
Sun Prairie Beef - 00% grass fed beef. They ship in 10 lb and 25 lb boxes. They welcome calls to talk cattle, land, beef, water... etc. The place sounds legit - try them out and tell me what you think.
|1/4 Beef, Pastured|
Windsor Dairy has raw milk, the preferred kind if you have to have milk, and also certified organic grass-fed beef and other meat.
Jodar Farms has a poultry CSA and also sells at the farmers markets. They have great eggs, too, and chicken legs for soup.
