While some people are satisfied with the grain-fed, CAFO raised, industrial meat that is passed off as beef in much of our restaurants and grocery stores, there is a growing demand for something different.
In the past, that "something different" might have taken the form of tracking down a local farmer to arrange for the purchase of a "cow share", a whole, half, or quarter steer that required significant freezer space and a big investment.
While this, or better yet, growing your own, likely represents the gold standard for grass-fed beef acquisition, many people don't live in agricultural areas, so access is limited. And even if you do live in a rural part of the country that hosts large domestic herbivores, there's no guarantee that the farmer is following grass-fed and grass-finishing standards, or that he or she will even sell to you.
Thanks to the internet however we now have a third option, from the comfort of our own home, we can purchase carefully selected grass-fed and grass-finished meats and have them delivered right to our door.
One such service is getbutcherbox.com, a new type of meat delivery service that started off as a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign and is now shipping customers a new, carefully curated box of meat, steaks, bacon, short ribs, and the like, each and every month.
Today on Paleo Radio bites we're joined by Michael Salguero CEO of Butcher Box, to find out more about his company, the meats, and some of his favorite recipes.
