  • Trader Joe's grass fed beef

    Is there some catch to their "100% grass fed beef?" It's about $5/Lbs, which is a lot cheaper than the $9/Lbs I'm used to seeing at Whole Paycheck. It tastes really good though!

      Same question. TJ's is my primary source of beef right now. Would be good to know if there are any caveats.

        I wasnt aware TJ had grassfed, they only have 'vegetarian fed'. Did they get new meat in?

          Maybe you could email them, asking where the beef is from, is it grass "finished," etc. I did that with my local WF and they answered me right away.

            The last time I was there, I asked one of the managers if they carried it and he said that they didn't and suggested that I try a local grocery store... apparently there just wasn't enough demand. What a shame!

              I was just at mine today... no grass fed... We're looking into going straight to the farm...

                @All
                Thanks everyone. It's the Trader Joe's brand, comes in a square vacuum sealed "bag" and it says "100% Organic, 100% Grass Fed Beef." I'll have to read the back again, but it said something like "Product of Australia."

                Interesting, I saw a lot of posts about grass fed beef at Costco, but they don't have any at ours.

                @Suzan

                I'll email them and let everyone know.

                  It's $5.50/lb at my local TJ's. It's Australian grass-fed beef (they have New Zealand grass-fed cheese too for like $6/lb). I buy it from time to time, to supplement the $7-8/lb grass-fed local stuff, but I'm trying to transition to more of the local because it's fresher, supports the local economy, and I have a better sense of how the animals were raised.

                    I checked costco too and they don't carry it in my area. interested in the response you get from TJ's.

                      the TJ's organic grassfed ground beef is wonderful--I've been using it since they started carrying it, and I think it tastes great and is priced reasonably-

                        It's $5.99/lb at my local TJ's in San Jose, CA. It's Australian grass-fed beef, 85/15.

                          Just following up. TJ's customer relations replied and said the 100% grass fed beef is just that - 100% grass fed. All the other beef they sell is grass-fed and grain finished.

                            Go New Zealand and Australian cows!

                            A very proud Kiwi here! Will buy this meat when I hit LA and NYC in a week's time!

                              Glad to hear about the TJ's Aussie beef. I don't believe there are any feed lots in OZ. A few years ago they had frozen Aussie steaks - they were very good.
