D'Artagnan meats?

Anyone know about this company?

They have a great variety of really interesting meats: various cuts of duck, sausages made from venison, wild boar, etc. They mention organic and sustainable farming practices on the labels, but it's not entirely clear the animals are grass-fed. It would be awesome if this were a reliable source of paleo meats, because the Safeway in Georgetown has a ton of these products. (This is a ridiculously upscale supermarket. It has a glass-enclosed temperature- and humidity-controlled wine room that sells first growth French Bordeaux!)

The only think I know about them is that everything is just hilariously expensive. The local meat store has some of their frozen stuff and most of it looks like it's been sitting there for years.

You have to contact them and ask for each individual product because they have so many different sources. Many of their products are raised for taste rather than health, so some of the meats are finished on grain. You can find some basic info on their site- for example the "Pasture-Raised Domestic Beef Tenderloin" is finished on "on a diet of barley, corn and hay to produce a tender and flavorful meat. " But the New Zealand Venison is "naturally raised on farms where the deer are able to roam and graze freely in natural conditions. The deer feed on grass, which may be supplemented during the colder months with natural feed like hay and silage." Unfortunately silage can be a euphemism for grains.
