  • Did the price of grass-fed beef increase suddenly in your area?

    Around here we are suddenly seeing prices around $8.99/lb., when it was $6.99/lb. and the highest being $7.99/lb. Whereas prices of conventional beef haven't budged at all. Does anyone know what's causing this? Is it happening where you live? I see more chicken and pork on our plates in our future.

        That is a great price at Trader Joes. I haven't been able to find any gf in my area. Where is this Trader Joes?

          Miata, they are all over the place. They also have gf strips and rib eyes. Just google them and you can find the closest one to you.

            Not on gf ground beef here. Just bought a bunch at WFoods and it's still $7.99/lb for 95/5 ground beef and $9.99/lb for 96/4 ground bison.

            Squid went up about a month and a half ago from $7.99 to $8.99/lb. But I love it, so c'est la vie.

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              JoanieL, did you catch the gf ground beef sale that WF had yesterday? $4.99 lb on Friday only.

                  Oh bummer. You can subscribe to their emails/newsletter and you'll get a heads up on their Friday only and weekend sales. Something in their meat or seafood dept is always deeply discounted on Friday.

                    I go to a couple of Trader Joes in Silicon Valley all the time and am always looking for grass fed beef -- but no luck. Maybe I'm just blind. I'll try again today and ask a clerk.

                      It's in the freezer with the fish at my TJ.

                          Jealous! It was $5.99 for the fresh grassfed ground beef at the Trader Joes' here in Phoenix, now it's $6.99. Frozen grassfed is still $5.99. Safeway's fresh grassfed ground beef is on sale for $5.99 a lot as well. No idea what it is at Whole Foods, figured it would be like twice as much so I haven't even bothered looking.

                            Wow, the last time we bought half a cow (gf) 13 months ago it came out to about $4.70 a pound for EVERYTHING! As soon as we can afford to we'll be buying another half, all we have left now is ground beef. I didn't realize we were getting such a deal, i never check the prices since I buy in bulk.

                              Your Safeway has gf beef? Really? Totally jello about that.
