Free range meat near Vancouver?

  • 7

Hi, I'm looking for a place ( a shop or a farm) where I could buy some free range meat.
I live in Vancouver but I'm willing to travel a bit, to get it.
Please help.
Thanks

  1. Hills Foods has the most extensive list of free-range meat: http://www.hillsfoods.com/products.html . (You can even get free-range kangaroo meat there). Check Famous Foods (Kingsway) and Granville Island as well.

    1. Also try Windsor Meats on Main st. They have a selection of free range and organic meats.

      1. Hopcott Premium Meats is another option that fits your description - their store is right on the farm. Nice place, good meat. It's in Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge, so probably 45 minutes from downtown. http://www.hopcottmeats.ca/

        1. Market Meats on 4th (between Vine & Balsalm) has a surprisingly good selection and their rotisserie chickens are free range and hormone free as well.

          1. Thank you very much. I am new to the city, so I appreciate your help.
            Any new ideas / suggestions are always welcome.

            1. Sebastian & Co. in West Van is my favorite. They only carry free-range and organic. They will cut up anything to order and can have it ready for you if you call ahead. Everything I have gotten from Sebastian has been melt-in-your-mouth good.

              1. Hi -
                in Maple Ridge, on Dewdney Trunk off 224th - is the Organic World Meat shop. Extremely reasonable prices and sometimes there are some products that are 2 for 1.
                While Hopcott is tasty meat - I don't think it is free range but farmed on their own feed lot.
                Farmers markets have direct from rancher free range beef (and pork and lamb) although more costly.
