ISO Natural / Organic / Grass Fed beef / pork in Montreal area.
Having young twin girls at home, and concerned about what goes into their little bodies, my wife and I are looking to buy organic beef and pork, that we can freeze and use as required for their meals.
We are looking to save money when we can (we are a normal, middle class family), and buying in bulk could save us a couple of dollars. So we are looking for recommendations of local farmers that organically and ethically raise their animals to feed our little monsters. Any recommendations?
Stairsholme Farm (run by Andrew Stairs and his wife) in Hemmingford should still be offering grass-fed beef (he did a while back but I am unsure what the status is on raising beef these days). He also has excellent chickens and other fowl (and goose eggs!)
Several years ago, we purchased a half cow from him. Everything was delivered frozen in neatly wrapped butcher paper and identified in grease pencil. It was a LOT of beef! LOL
He has a stall at the St Anne de Bellevue market and is there every Saturday. There was also another stall that had grass fed beef and sold pork as well there. I am not sure of their name and also not sure if they go to the indoor location of the market during the winter. Andrew's beef is very good by the way if you like grass fed beef.
