Butcher in Hampton Roads area

We are looking to buy a freezer-sized quantity of beef from a butcher / farmer, preferably antibiotic-free. If anyone could recommend one, I'd be quite appreciative.

BTW, I'm a new member -- apologies if my posting format is off. Please feel free to educate me! :-)

  1. There was just something in the paper last week about a farm where you can order a side of beef from...but i do not could try the Pilot's archives...they have a small section in the Food Section weekly about local fresh food

    1. I'm not sure about anti-biotic free, but I would definitely look into the butcher at the Virginia Beach Farmer's Market. It is at the corner of Princess Anne and Landstown Rd. I don't know the name. They have the best steaks that we've found around here. I'd be interested in other replies the VB market is a drive for us.

        1. HI!

          1. I don't know if you found a place to purchase beef. We sell grassfed, hormone and antibiotic-free cattle. We have just had a farm audit by the Animal Welfare Approved organization and the American Grassfed Association. Both make sure that the animals are well cared for and are raised in a natural environment with adequate pastures, water supply, etc. We have recently instituted a breeding program crossing our registered Polled Hereford cattle with registered Black Angus. Genetic testing has shown that this is an excellent cross which produces the best quality grassfed beef . Please feel free to call us if you are or someone you know, is interested in buying some quality beef.
