It really does put a smile on one's face to look upon a freezer of lovely grass-fed meats!

It took a bit of research (made easier by eatwild.com and manitobagrassfedbeef.ca) to compare and figure out where we were going to order from; and in the end we decided to place our first order with McDonald Farm for the following reasons:

  1. Their price is very competitive
  2. They deliver free to Winnipeg once every month
  3. They have many different animal meats/organs to choose from, as well as eggs (seasonal)
  4. I enjoyed reading their FAQ covering many topics, like how they raised healthy animals, treated their sick animals, ensured delivery of grass-fed meats that was free of chemicals and antibiotics, etc...
  5. Accept Paypal as a credit card option

We saved up a bit so that our first order could be large enough to start us off in a good position to not need meat for a while.  The  hope being that we can place smaller (more cost friendly) orders each month to keep our meat supply up.  In this first order we have:

  • a quarter of beef (ground, steaks, roasts, ribs, stew meat, soup bones, etc...),
  • beef organ meats (tried ordering liver, but short supply steered us towards tongue and kidneys),
  • a couple smoked hams, and
  • a few free-range chickens

We promised ourselves that we would not dive into these meats until we had used up our existing supply of store bought beef and last seasons elk; so I can't make any comments yet on the quality or taste... but that is going to be coming very soon!
