Hi, I'm new here, and I was wondering if anybody knows of a good source of Grassfed/finished meat somewhere in or near Fairbanks that is reasonably priced.  I have heard that Delta Meat might be pretty good.  Does anybody have any experience with them, or any others?

 

thanks,

-Jenny

Delta Meat and Sausage might be able to direct you to a rancher in Delta.

I don't recall any that specifically raised beef cattle on grass however, the Fellman's Dairy (part of Northernlights Dairy) let their dairy cows graze in the pastures during the summer. We have had some of their dairy cow after it was butched due to old age and OMG! So good. They really care for their cows.

What about the Hollembeck Ranch? they raise buffalo and elk, maybe cows too. They are all raised on a 1000 acre ranch, I have never seen them feed anything but hay and grasses.

If you are on Facebook the group Alaska Farm & Food would be a great place to inquire.

Have you tried Homegrown Meats in Fairbanks? My mother often buys grassfed burger there. I assume they source it out of Delta.
