100% Grass-fed beef in Pittsburgh

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find 100% grass-fed beef in the Pittsburgh area--the closer to the South Hills the better? Whole Foods and Giant Eagles "grass fed" beef is finished with grains. There are only two of us, so ordering a 1/4 of a cow is not feasible. I'd just like to be able to walk into a store and pick up a couple of steaks.

Thanks,
Dana

    Laptop Butchershop - suggest you get on their newsletter: http://www.slowfoodpgh.com/laptop.html

    Also, when farmers market season starts, you'll find a few regional meat vendors as regulars at various South Hills locations The one on Saturdays on Washington Rd. in Mt. Lebo usually has a grass-fed beef vendor right across from our store (Aldo Coffee). We can vouch for the quality.

      Thanks, Panini Guy! I've checked out Laptop Butchershop and it hasn't been updated since last year. Maybe they are waiting until farmer's market season. I will definitely check out the Mt. Lebo site. It will be nice to have someplace close.

        Email Susan Barclay, as listed on the website that Panini Guy posted above, and tell her you want to be on the Laptop Butchershop mailing list. The site hasn't been updated, but the program is very active and everything is done via email. At the last event (a few weeks ago) there was some great grass-fed beef from a couple in Ohio, and it was available a la carte for purchase.

      Also try Penn's Corner Farm Alliance. They have a monthly farmstand in which you can order grassfed beef and pick it up. The beef comes from local farms.

      In the summer, every other week at the Farmer's at the Firehouse in the strip district, they sell grassfed beef.

      Also try eatwild.com

      Good luck!
