Are there common sources for inexpensive grass fed meat?

I realize Costco and Trader Joe's carry some reasonably priced grass fed meat. Are there any other inexpensive sources out there? I heard the sometimes frowned upon Walmart carries bison in some locations. Any useful info would be much appreciated.

Ha, sorry! I thought that sounded like a great deal, maybe it is :)

Crap! I wonder if I grabbed the wrong one. Package doesn't say. It's Trader Joes brand from Australia. I'll head back and check.

Wow, 1lb of grassfed ground beef at my TJ's is 7 bucks or so, just sayin'. $2.69?

You see that deer over there? -- yeah that one, eating the flowers out of your garden every morning -- I'm just saying, two birds, one stone.

Bison can be and often is grain finished just like conventional beef. Don't assume that it's grass fed unless it explicitly says so. Also, there's an excellent chance that it's CAFO is it's at wal Mart

Local markets normally have meat trucks with great prices. A lot of them also cure their own bacon without extra nitrates, dextrose etc.

If you're looking for small quantities, you can check a local farmers' market and if you live in the US or Canada, you can find a local supplier here: http://www.eatwild.com/products/index.html

Just in the beginning stages of going paleo. I'm in Oregon (Portland-Metro) Yesterday I hit Trader Joes. You really can't beat TJs prices. 1lb of grass fed ground beef was $2.69/lb. 12oz of nitrite free bacon was $3.69. Today I hit Fred Meyer (Kroger). 1lb of grass fed gound beef was $7.71/lb. 12oz of nitrite free bacon was $4.49. Picked up some ground bison ($7.99/lb) to try. Wasn't thinking about Costco. I'll check there next. I checked online and the prices were outragous. Unless Costco has some great deals, I'm sticking to Trader Joes.

Not sure where you live, but my local Stop & Shop has started carrying grassed meats (they say they are from Australia). Have also heard that much of the lamb in grocery stores that is sourced from Australia is largely grass fed.

Agree that finding local sources via http://eatwild.com/ is often the best way. And you get to know the rancher, which can be helpful in knowing what you are getting.
