Free Range, Organic Meat

My hubby went to pick up the other day the meat that I ordered from the coop that sells free-range and organic meat. Free range animals are never given growth hormones or antibiotics which is bad for our health. Their cows are all grass-fed and the chickens and turkeys are grain and vegetable fed

This free-ranged organic meat is an exceptional source of protein in your diet because it is free of antibiotics. Over half of the antibiotics fed to mass-produced farm animals including chickens and cows are identical to the ones administered to humans. As has been well publicized in the media, overuse of such antibiotics can lead to strains of bacteria resistance to the antibiotic, opening doors wider to the potential for human disease.

That's the reason I prefer to buy this kind of meat. One more thing is that these meat taste better than those bought in the stores. It doesn't have lots of fats too. I ordered chicken, beef and turkey meat and my hubby paid $120. I told him it will last us for more than a month. Our freezer is full of frozen organic meat now.

I agree with you on this. they do taste differently from the ordinary meat.

sounds like the price is also reasonable there as compared here. but, as they say, you get what you pay for. enjoy!

saan kayo pumunta? quick get-away ha?

Most of our food and meat are organic and we are using natural products for cleaning stuff, laundry and etc. There's too much toxic and chemicals for everything now and we tried to avoid them.

I will link you up as soon as I can. Thanks for the visit Lisa.
