You've heard us endlessly tout the benefits of grass-fed meat—it contains more anti-inflammatory omega-3s, it's sourced from humanely raised animals, and it's far less damaging to the environment than the conventional factory farmed stuff. But getting your hands on it? Well, that's the tricky part. If you don't have a nearby farmers' market, local farm, or well-stocked grocery store, you're kind of out of luck. Until now.
Meet Greensbury Market—a company that's managed to combine your love of quality meat and seafood with online shopping. It's the latest in an increasing number of online retailers that are delivering high quality animal proteins right to your doorstep, provided you live in the continental US. They offer everything from grass-fed beef and lamb to wild caught halibut and shrimp. They even have femur bones from grass-fed cows so you can finally whip up a batch of homemade bone broth and fully transition into health-minded hipster.
So, is it worth it? As a busy young professional who values convenience but isn't willing to compromise on quality, yeah, I think so—at least for those weeks when I can barely get out of bed, let alone get my ass to the grocery store to battle the rowdy post-church crowd on a Sunday, my preferred day for food shopping.
For starters, it was a breeze to use the site—I placed my order of grass-fed skirt steak and wild caught halibut on a Sunday night and received it on a Wednesday afternoon. Both meat and fish arrived vacuum-sealed and frozen, and took up minimal space in my freezer. Oh, and the taste? Completely delicious.
