  • Should I buy meat online?

    I'm new to primal eating. Due to sudden health issues, I am sort of forced to eat primal.

    I really want to eat high quality meat from now on.. Theirs a few health market places I can go to but they're sort of out of my way and I am pretty busy so I was thinking of ordering online.

    First question is.

    Is it considered safe? I mean the whole idea of meat being delivered to the door is strange for me but it would also be kind of nice.

    Is it a rip off? I'm sure it can be pretty expensive. But on the other hand, I'll be saving gas and a trip to the market.

    I used the search option and read a few opinions but didn't really find as much info as I had hoped.

      I've ordered from US Wellness. They have a minimum order size to guarantee the meat will stay frozen. They ship it to your doorstep in a large styrofoam cooler. The cooler seems wasteful but I think they have a cooler take-back program. If not them, I think I've seen other companies that do. Of course, my research shows that take-back programs mostly assuage guilt rather than actually recycle or reuse anything. I don't think it's a rip-off at all to order meat from US Wellness. The prices for local grass-fed beef are higher for me. I usually buy the local though just because I can go get it from the market whenever I want, but the odd things like the pemmican and the kidney fat I have to order.

        Thanks, for this. I'm hunting down local beef guys, as I type this.

          I've had nothing but good experiences with US Wellness meats as well. I do try to buy most of my items locally, but USW's prices are decent, the quality is exceptional, and I trust the sourcing. I currently use them for things like chicken wings, beef tallow, and other odd items I can't get locally.

            I buy my meat from Fossil Farms. Their store is local to me, but they sell online also. Great selection of game meats, and the Piedmontese beef is grass-fed. I just made a stew with some of their venison last night. The chipotle buffalo burgers are awesome, too!

              Local is fantastic if you can find it. You can even buy half a cow and just put in your freezer.

              On-line is expensive but I have had good luck with it. US wellness is good. A couple months ago I won a raffle for some free meat from TX Bar Organics. Very expensive but really great meat.

              My one suggestion would be to order a reasonable amount the first time you order. Meat will have a different flavor from each farm, so you may not like one and may love another. Better to find out before buying $300 worth of meat

              Good luck!!

                I buy LaCense beef and Vital Choice seafood all the time, both expensive but so delish, shipped on dry ice.

                  There's also eatwellguide.org and localharvest.org. When I bought 1/4 grass-fed cow a couple years ago I actually found the farmer on Craigslist. A lot of people who have backyard chickens sell their eggs there, too.
                  I don't order online, because I can't seem to justify the cost.

                        I've ordered from Grass Fed Beef - Grassfed Steaks - Beef Jerky - Humane Certified before. Everything came frozen, packed in a cooler with dry ice. Price wise, it's cheaper than Whole Foods. A lot of my local places are actually a little more than online with "free" shipping. I'd drive to Missouri and make a pick up if the gas wouldn't make it a wash.

                          I checked out the link you provided; and, I'm now itching to try the burger lounge in San Diego, when I'm there, in the end of May.
