From The Weston A. Price Foundation Shopping Guide: Meat

BEST: Fresh or frozen beef, veal, lamb, poultry, goat and pork, including fat and organ meats, from (preferably soy-free) animals allowed to graze; venison and other game meat. (For a list of ranchers providing grass-fed animal products, see: http://www.eatwild.com or http://www.iapt.org/EatWell, or your local chapter).

Note: It is important to consume organ meats and meat with the fat. Consumption of lean meats
can lead to deficiencies.”

GOOD: Organic chicken; fresh or frozen beef, pork, lamb, duck, turkey and goose.”

AVOID: Most commercial chicken, turkey and pork, which is raised in confinement on industrial farms.”

Long’s Meat Market
81 E 28th Ave, Eugene, OR 97405
(541) 344-3172
http://www.longsmeatmarket.com

Long’s carries a local brand of beef from Knee-Deep Cattle Company. This is grass-fed beef. They also carry other brands, so you will have to ask to make sure it is the grass-fed beef. They sometimes have on-hand bones, organs, tongue and fat from Knee-Deep cattle. If they are not available ask for them by special order (usually only 2-3 days).

They are also learning about Lisa’s Organ Blend, which is a mixture of ground beef, beef heart and a small amount of beef liver.  Soon you should be able to ask for it by name!  For now, you will still need to give them instructions.


The Kiva
125 W. 11th Avenue, Eugene, OR 97401
(541) 342-8666
http://kivagrocery.com/meat

All of the fresh meat carried by The Kiva is produced in the Pacific Northwest, without the use of added hormones of antibiotics.  They carry 100% grass-fed beef from Knee-Deep Cattle Company, and also carry locally produced meat from the Deck Family Farm.

Most of the meat in the deli is not free of hormones & etc.  Ask for details to be sure of what you are getting.


 Bright Oak Meats

660 Main St.
Springfield, OR 97477
(541) 726-6913

They carry grass-fed beef prepacked in 1 lb packages.  Most of their beef was raised locally by Mohawk Valley Meats. The Mohawk Valley Meats animals are raised on pasture, but NOT 100% grass-fed. They are fed some grain in the fields (no feedlots), and are antibiotic and hormone-free.

Bright Oak Meats carries many different organ meats as well as bags of beef “dog bones” (usually knuckle), marrow bones and lamb neck bones. They also carry unusual meats such as rabbit, alligator, elk, wild boar, bison and more.

Market of Choice carries some grass-fed beef and lamb. They also carry other brands.  Ask for details to be sure of what you are getting. Most of the beef from Painted Hills is free-range, but is not  100% grass-fed (only if it says 100% grass-fed).  The lamb from Anderson Ranches is 100% grass-fed in the Willamette Valley.

Lamb Liver: The Franklin location regularly carries lamb liver from Anderson Ranches.  They get their shipment in on Wednesdays.  The Woodfield Station location will special order liver if you request it.


Capella Market
2489 Willamette Street,
Eugene, OR 97405
(541) 345-1014
email: capellamarket@gmail.com
capellamarket.com/meat

Capella carries some grass-fed beef and lamb. They also carry other brands.  Ask for details to be sure of what you are getting.  The lamb from Anderson Ranches is 100% grass-fed in the Willamette Valley.

Capella carries beef from Country Natural Beef, which sounds like it has good environmental standards for grazing, but does not claim to be 100% grass-fed.  Nor does the meat from Oregon Natural Meats (Brew Burger) claim to be grass-fed.  The cows are  fed brewer’s grain from micro-breweries, and are certainly NOT grass-fed!

Capella is also able to special order organ meats or bones at your request.


PL International Market

1333 W 7th Ave
Eugene, OR 97402
(541)357-9341
http://www.pl-international.com/

PL International Market carries many different cuts of meat, organs, bones and fat from a variety of animals. They make no statements about the sources of the meats, so we have to assume they are from confinement–raised animals.

They are still a good resource to know about because of the wide variety and as an example of how cultures across the world value these cuts. In addition to the regular cuts, they carry such parts as feet, heads,  tendons, and organs. These are valuable parts of the animal that are largely ignored in western society, but have been valued for generations in other cultures.

PL International Market also makes a fresh Chicharrón from pork skin deep-fried in its own lard (unfortunately they use vegetable oil in their take out foods – if you speak Spanish please talk with them about changing to traditional lard).  Their house brand lard is available in tubs near the produce section.  This was made on the premises.  They also sell lard in boxes which has been hydrogenated (please avoid boxed lard!)
