Introduced to me by my go-to-about-everything-friend, Grass Roots Coop is a farmers’ coop that sells chicken, beef, and pork online and ships it to you directly. This is a great alternative to going to the grocery store during this chaotic time, as well as a great way to get fresh, 100% pasteurized meat grown on family farms across the country.
It feels good to know that you are supporting small local farms, buying good quality meat, and not needing to go out in public to get some food! Everyone wins.
How it works.
I bought a lot of meat — shipped in dry ice — it arrived just a couple days later. Due to the increase in orders, it will take longer than normal, but it will arrive, and then you will be so happy. I got a variety of meat — chicken, fillet, ground beef, etc..and I have to tell you, we are SO happy with the quality.
Real meat, raised right. Amen.
I was so happy to see that this piece of meat (fillet) is from a farm in my homestate of Oregon. Go Oregon!
I highly recommend going online, placing an order, and freezing this meat (or eating it right away). You will be so happy you did it.
If anyone has other recommendations on small business that will help get us through this chaotic and surreal experience, please share!
