Why buy Organic and where to buy!
I have been asked by a number of people where you can buy grass fed beef & organic meat locally, so Ive found some great UK & Irish Companies for you!!
But first, why grass fed meat??
A little bit of science..Grass-fed beef is naturally leaner than grain-fed beef. Omega 3s in animals that feed on grass is 7% of the total fat content, compared to 1% in grain-only fed animals. Grass-fed beef for example has the recommended ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats (3:1.)
Ok, so where can you purchase?
