Me personally: I'm on a college student salary (lol), and I buy it when I can afford it. I also buy cheaper cuts of both conventional (to save for the good stuff) and ethical (to afford it!)
I honestly feel that its benefits are undersold a little, especially when one is consuming a lot of it like I do
I also think it would help for you to find a cheaper distributor.....my local grocery store apparently sells it for $5 a pound, frequently putting it on sale for $4 when stocks are still not sold. That is not a big jump from the feedlot stuff. I can't imagine one would be unable to find a way to buy it in bulk for around those prices, if not lower.
"They now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry." - Thomas Jefferson, 1826
Sometimes I can find ground wagyu beef for $6 a pound. It turns out wagyu beef is grass-fed and grass-finished. It's pretty fatty and delicious so I think that's why people don't like it and why it's so cheap.

Buy in bulk and go in with some friends if needed. I just bought a half of of a grass finished cow for $3.15 a pound. That includes, burger, roasts, steaks and they throw in the organs and bones for free.
Sounds like I should try to find a way to keep it. What about organic cage free eggs? How important are those?
