  • Grassfed beaf, finally.

    So today I went to the local supermarket. Went to the meat section and looked for my standard grain fed ground beef, and then I saw something, locally grassfed ground meat, and at the same price as my standard meat, was sooo happy

    Im really excited about the development of our local supermarket (Live in a very small town in Sweden with just 20K people in it). Now I can get grassfed beef, wild caught salmon and shrimps. Free range eggs. Organic broccoli, organic asparagus, organic spinach, organic, garlic. Organic blueberries and organic blackberries. Coconutmilk with nothing but coconut and water.

    Thats basically all I eat, only things missing now is organic parsley and coconutoil, other then that I now have very high quality locally grassfed/wild caught/free range/organic for all the food I eat on a regular bases.


    Just wanted to share my happiness

    brb moving to sweden.

    seriously the same price? maybe your 'standard' beef has also always been grass fed? or is the grass-fed subsidized by government or something?

      Im pretty sure the "normal" one is grain fed, because they marked the grass fed one really obviously and made a big point it was grass fed

          At ICA? I know they have a new sort of grass-fed meat which it not organic. Very nice meat though, and not having to get licensed for organic food makes it a lot cheaper.

            I hear Australia and New Zealand are great places for grass-fed as it's actually more expensive for them to feed their cattle and sheep grain.

              Oh trust me, if it weren't for their strict censorship laws and high contents of poisonous snakes and bugs, I'd do whatever it took to move there haha

                Hey shadowfang don't get us confused with Australia, they are the ones that have dangerous snakes and bugs. We only have the Katipo (similar red back) and Whitetail spider (not dangerous but painful if you get bitten) and I've never ever seen a Katipo after 23 years of living here and they were both 'imported' from Australia. Saying that I don't think Aussies worry too much about the wildlife, they just get used to it like everything else. I just worry about earthquakes, bad drivers and not getting too complacent with our very very powerful sun. Oh, and in NZ 98% of beef are grass fed and yes it does cost more to grain feed them. Same with sheep. Small population lots of space.

                  And VERY strict laws concerning GMOs, or at least back in 2003 when I was there. Is that still the case? Come to think of it, *I* should move there!

                    I buy australian grass fed beef here in Tennessee and it is often more affordable than US produced grassfed beef. Not exactly locavore, but this diet is such that I have to find my breaks somewhere. It is really tasty.

                      Yes AndreaReina, it's a great little country to live in. Some people might find it a bit isolated, but I love it here, can't imagine living anywhere else. Yes there are strict rules about GMO, lots of research going on and the NZ Soil & Health Association would like NZ to be organic by 2020! can't see it happening that quickly though but progress is being made.

                        The food quality was a lot higher when I lived in Australia. But it is much more expensive in comparison to here. Then again, people also make better wages in Australia too. So it makes up for it.

                          @Andreas: Yes thats the one Do you know if its 100% grassfed or just partially? In any case though, better then the other meats.

                            Question about grass fed vs. buying local - none of my local grocery stores sell local grass fed beef. My local Heinen's is starting to stock grass fed beef from Australia. Is it better to go 100% grass fed even if it isn't local OR go local, even if it is grain fed? Ideally, I would like both local and grass fed. It just doesn't seem that any of my local grocery stores have them. Whole Foods in my area carries grass fed from Georgia. I guess that is more local than Australia...

                              Would that grassfed beef from GA be White Oak Pastures brand? If so it is GOOOOOD stuff!!! And 100% grassfed and humanely raised too.

                              Although to answer your question the grassfed from australia would be better for YOU but possibly not the world environment/local economy blah blah blah. Although if you can afford the cowshare or to buy a whole cow from a rancher before the cows are shipped off to the feedlot it's the best of both worlds.
