It's somewhat difficult to find grass-fed beef in my small city that is both inexpensive and easily obtainable. I didn't see any grass-fed beef at Trader Joe's. I didn't see any at Whole Foods a couple weeks ago but went there yesterday and there was lots of if. But it's expensive. The other health food store I shop at has it at like $20+ a pound, all ribeyes and NY steaks. Where's the rest of the cow??? There are one or two little stores where I've found frozen packs of local grass-fed meat that's in cheaper cuts. I found them by doing a search on Google for grass fed beef and Santa Barbara. There is also lots of grass-fed beef at the various farmer's markets, but I've had to try several of them to figure out which ones actually have the beef and which ones don't. They've got rules, too, where if there is one guy selling grass-fed beef the other guy can't be there, or if there's someone selling chicken the grass-fed beef guy can't also sell chicken. Stupid rule because the one grass-fed beef guy has the best chicken. So basically, you have to go on a long treasure hunt and if all else fails, you can mail-order it from US Wellness Meats.
