can't buy sides of beef or whole cows/pigs, etc. but want to buy local.
any suggestions?

  1. Check out the people who sell at the Green City Market (the big farmer's market at the south end of Lincoln Park):

    1. My company, Dietzler Farms, supplies dry aged beef to restaurants throughout the area. It is all raised on my family farm in Elkhorn, WI. I deliver fresh every Thursday!

        1. You may want to checkout Seven Sons Farms. They deliver to Chicago.

          1. Tallgrass Beef is located in Kansas, but it's founded by a Chicagoan (a famous one, in fact). www.tallgrassbeef.com

            1. Liberty Family Farms in Hart, MI does a meat CSA and is at the Green City Market every month. All their meat is grass-fed. You can google their name for contact info.
