I know that organic grass-fed is vastly superior to factory farmed grain-fed meat. However, I found a local farmer who sells clean organic pork raised on barley and clover that he grows. I did some research, and the difference between grass-fed and grain-fed isn't very significant.

Omega ratios: sure, grass-fed meat has a better 6:3 ratio, but if you look at the absolute amounts, they're so tiny as to be insignificant. Who cares if the 6:3 ratio is 8.5—there's not even half a gram in a 4 oz serving of meat!! So there's hardly any difference here.
Vitamins: same situation—grass-fed may be higher, but the absolute amounts are tiny, usually under 5% of RDA. So this is another fake benefit.
CLA (conjugated linoleic acid): this seems to be the only worthwhile benefit to grass-fed meat. I'm not too sure how important it is... would it really justify the higher price of grass-fed meat?
All in all, I think grass-fed is overrated and that organic is much more important. Grass-fed is the most primal, so it evidently wins, but grain-fed organic is a good compromise. Am I missing anything, or is grass-fed really overhyped?
