Moderatly Priced Organic Meat In GTA
Does anyone know of a place that sells organic meat? I went to Whole Foods by Square One and nearly dropped $25 just for 4 pieces of boneless chicken breast. If anyone knows of a place please let me know. By the way would I have luck at kensington market? Thanks for the help.
You could try The Healthy Butcher (http://www.thehealthybutcher.com). They have 3 locations - 565 Queen St., 298 Eglinton, and one in Kitchener-Waterloo. They've got organic and locally- raised beef, chicken, pork, lamb, elk, bison, duck, geese, rabbit, and more and the people are friendly.
If it doesn't have to be organic, Sanagan's Meat Locker in Kensington sells sustainable, locally raised meats. Cumbrae's is also another local farm-raised option and they've got 3 locations in the city as well - on Church, Bayview, and in Dundas, ON.
In the west end, you can try Butcher by Nature http://www.butcherbynature.com .
There are good butchers in Kensington Market and St. Lawrence Market as well.
If for "GTA" you are willing to travel out of the city, my favourite source for meat is Agram Meats http://www.agrammeats.com/ .
The farm, abattoir, processing, and store are all on the same property near Georgetown, operated by the same people. Not certified organic, (which means their prices are very reasonable) but all natural and local, and I feel good about buying my meat there.
Another not certified organic, but as good as is "Fresh from the Farm" near Donlands and O'Connor. http://freshfromthefarm.ca/. All Kitchener-Waterloo area Mennonite products. Mennonite farmers produce food for their local community, and since they trust each other to use healthy practices, they don't feel the need to certify. Good stuff, available in store or by pre-order. Also baked goods, home canning, cheese, eggs and produce (in season).
