Organic fish and meats in the North end of the GTA

I am currently and indefinitely stuck here in Richmond Hill, and am hoping that someone here would know where they would have non-commodity meats and fish nearby. Hopefully in Richmond Hill, but I would be happy to venture to Markham, Thornhill, Concord etc.

I am thinking of salmon, beef, pork, chicken etc., that are either labelled as organic or at least coming from a farm, where they pay attention to quality and limit the use of hormones and chemicals.

Thanks for the suggestions!

  1. Kloster's Butcher Shop in Aurora carries frozen grass-fed Ontario bison.
    They're at 220 Industrial Parkway S, Unit 9 (905-841-6679)
    Not too far from you.

    1. re: torontovore

      Cool, thanks torontovore.

      I suppose, by the lack of responses, there really isn't much around here?

    2. Beef Connections has periodic deliveries to Richmond Hill. Farm-raised pork and beef, hormone-free, etc.Order online and pick it up at the designated spot at delivery time.Check out their website for more info - Nice people to deal with, too.

      1. You would probably find some good stuff at Stuart Carroll - they carry some of the same things that Cumbraes ("naturally raised meats") does downtown.

        1. Beef Connections sound nice, except I don't eat that much meat to justify for their packages, and I don't have a lot of freezer space.

          And if Stuart Caroll is anything like Cumbrae's, I'm sure I will like it. I'll be sure to check it out soon.

          Thanks all!

          1. i think berreta farms will deliver to your house if your order is over a certain amount(something like $150).
            ambrosia (on doncaster) carries some frozen meats and fish.
