The discussions on where to buy grass-fed beef, truely free-range poultry, etc. are scattered around the forum, and I want to consolidate them here so the sources can be found easily. Post your sources or updates as replies to this sticky message or PM them to me, and I'll organize and consolidate them from time to time. For now, provide the retail outlet or producer's name and location, and contact information if you have it, and I'll sort them by geography as the need arises.

Some of the Texas sources that have been mentioned are:

Dallas & Fort Worth Area:
Check out the Burgundy Boucherie in Grandview, TX, recently opened by Jon & Wendy Taggart and offers a variety of pastured meats produced by local farmers & ranchers. It is the first exclusively pastured meats butcher market in the area. Home delivery is available to customers with a small surcharge. They have pasture raised beef & chicken available now, with lamb to be available soon. Wendy also gives out excellent recipes and cooking tips, as pastured beef cooks more quickly and must be handled differently than mass market beef. It's easier and much more nutritious and flavorful.

Contact information is as follows:
Burgundy Boucherie
800 McDuff Avenue
Grandview, TX 76050
817-866-2247
www.burgundypasturebeef.com

You can also find contact information in the Natural News section of Equine Times of North Central Texas, my newspaper.

I have been a customer for several years and recommend them highly.
Please tell them I sent you! I PROMISE you will be satisfied.

Kathe :D

Dominion Farms
813 Well Rd.
Denison, TX 75020.
(903) 464 - 0445

:D
It is a beautiful drive out there and they may be able to hook you up with a co op in your area.
I had the privilege of touring Dominion Farms last spring. My visit was both informative and inspiring.
I am very impressed with Drue Bynum as a person, and with the wholesome fundamental practices that make Dominion Farms the successful operation that it is. These are truly good people who know their business quite well.

:D

The pork chops at Dominion farms are the best. Just brown them in a pan on top of the stove and stick them in the oven at 350 for 12 minutes. I don't even add salt and pepper. What a meal.

Here is a link for our local Dallas/Fort Worth area chapters of the Weston A Price Foundation. We have a page of area farmers who are raising grass-fed/grass-finished meats, eggs, and dairy products.

Healthy eating!

Make that, "BEEF BURGER now available." Direct from our farm to you--raised in all the right ways, i.e., no hormones, antibiotics, herbicides, pesticides, etc. Pasture raised and 100% grass fed. It's good and good for you. Priced from 5# $20 to 100# $350.

Our registered, fullblood Australian Lowline Angus bull, Mr. Dundee, has produced some fine calves. Some will be ready to butcher in 16-18 months. All cuts of meat will be offered from these steers.

Turkey Creek Farm's goal is to have the very best beef for our customers.
Pray for rain...

I would like to add some information about a previous post. I inquired about Slanker's grass fed beef and found out that his animals graze on grass that has been treated with synthetic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Mr. Slanker informed me that those chemicals do not enter the meat of the animals and told me he would rather eat that meat than animals that were fed grain. Well, I don't agree with him. I prefer to eat animals that don't graze on synthetics.

Everybody has their own idea of what is a good way to raise meat, reference: "I inquired about Slanker's grass fed beef and found out that his animals graze on grass that has been treated with synthetic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Mr. Slanker informed me that those chemicals do not enter the meat of the animals and told me he would rather eat that meat than animals that were fed grain."

People don't like the regulations for organic certification and the government involvement but at least you know what you are getting under the organic label. That being said, I don't eat organic beef because these animals can be confined and rarely see the sky or grass and are given organic grain. I don't eat Slanker's beef for the reasons already mentioned but I do believe it is better than some organic sources. Those aren't judgements, they're my personal preference. Everyone has to make their own decision.

The government or a label alone won't tell you everything, you have to develop a relationship with the person raising the animals. This can be done in one phone call or one face to face meeting. I wrote a complete article about this in the dirt magazine within the last few months.

Check the people who advertise on this site and give them a call.
