I just learned of a resource yesterday that you should know about. It’s eatwild.com
. According to the website, it’s “your source for safe, healthy, natural and nutritious grass-fed beef, lamb, goats, bison, poultry, pork, dairy and other wild edibles.”
The feature on the website that I’m finding most useful is the clickable U.S. map
that leads users to a list of farms and ranches in each state that meet Eatwild’s criteria for producing grass-fed meat, eggs, and dairy products.
Another feature that I like is the Beyond the Farm link for each state. The link takes you to a list of that state’s “markets, restaurants, stores and buying clubs that feature grass-fed products.”
The website also has information about grass-fed basics
, and articles about how it’s more beneficial for the animals, the people who eat the animals, and the environment.
Eatwild.com is a resource that I’m finding very helpful. Since taking my husband to see Food, Inc.
, we’ve been talking about buying a freezer and purchasing a ¼ of a local cow and other animal products in bulk. Eatwild is pointing me to many farms and ranches in my area that I didn’t know about and making my research a whole lot easier.
