    I've purchased from about a dozen (or more) farms that raise their cattle on pasture, using humane and sustainable methods. Quite a few of those I found out about from eatwild, some I came across at farmers' markets or other gatherings.

    Some folks may need to rely on mail order, but with so many local options, it's important to me to patronize farms whose livestock is of superior quality, and farmers whose methodology aligns with my ethical priorities and who offer excellent service. In general, the farmers I've dealt with have been very patient, have been happy to show me their farm operations, explaining what goes into every aspect of what they do. I buy monthly from a farm that offers beef, pork, eggs, wild salmon, and chicken (they deliver!), and will go regularly to another farm that offers those items plus lamb, goat, raw milk, and specialty sausages. There are farmers' market vendors that I will check out if I run out in-between.

    It's all about what's important to you, but I think having a good relationship with a local farmer, to be able to actually walk their fields and see their livestock with your own eyes, is a pretty good deal.

    If there is no grass fed, grass finished beef available in your area, visit Grass Fed Beef - Grassfed Steaks - Beef Jerky - Humane Certified which is the home of Rain Crow Ranch. I bought a 1/4 steer from them last summer. Even though the beef arrived on an extremely hot day, it was all perfectly frozen. I found their pricing to be on par with what I could get in my state even with the shipping. Very nice beef.
