Eat Helps you locate local grass-fed meat, eggs, and dairy

>> Friday, January 15, 2010 is your source for safe, healthy, natural and nutritious grass-fed beef, lamb, goats, bison, poultry, pork, dairy and other wild edibles in their state by state directory.

Eat Wild also has comprehensive, accurate information about the benefits of raising
animals on pasture. According to Eat Wild, "A major benefit of raising animals on pasture is that their products are healthier for you. For example, compared with feedlot meat, meat from grass-fed beef, bison, lamb and goats has less total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories. It also has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and a number of health-promoting fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and 'conjugated linoleic acid,' or CLA."

Products from grass-fed animals are safer than food from conventionally-raised animals. Eat Wild also says, "When you eat grass-fed meat, you may have a lower risk of becoming infected with dangerous E. coli bacteria" and, "a final note of reassurance is that the producers listed on the website certify that their animal and dairy products are free of feed antibiotics, added hormones, and other growth promoters, making them the "cleanest" animal food you can buy."

Eat Wild has lots of resources such as a list of farmers who will ship their products, the Eat Wild Store for great books and kitchen tools, and list of scientific research relevant to grass-fed foods. So today and locate your source for healthier meat, dairy, and eggs!
