Slowly more people are realizing that the beef and other meat they eat are not the best choices.
Grass fed beef is becoming more in demand and that was reason for me to do a lot of research and find the best places to buy grass fed beef.
The number of online stores that sell grass fed beef and heritage pork is growing. There are however a few of them that have been online for a longer time and I recommend only on products I would use myself.
That is why I narrowed it down to the 4 most know online meat stores.

Snake River Farms Review(Back to Top)
There is no particular reason that I started with the Snake River Farms. it was just the first one on my list.
When I started reading about them to write this snake river farms review I found that they work closely together with the Double-R ranch and that it is one of the most known names in online meat stores.
In a hurry? You can see there store here!
After reading a lot of the comments people wrote about the snake river farms there were a few points that stood out about their services.
- Very tender meat
- Nice marbeled
- Quality you find in better restaurants
- Very well taste.
I also read that the meat form this vendor cooks faster than non grass-fed meat. I guess because it contains less fat.
The prices are pretty reasonable taking in consideration how long it takes to let the cows mature and grow natural.
Farmfoods Review(Back to Top)
Farmfoods is a company that tries to run a lean system. Meaning that they do not spend a lot of money on advertising and promoting their healthy meat.
This means that their prices might be a little lower than other online meat stores.
They work at this moment with only 6 farms that raise their beef all natural and that they only feed grass and hay.
You can click here see the Farmfoods website!
Farmfoods have a strict policy when it comes to animals that need a veterinarian. If a cow needs medicine it will be sold as regular beef and no longer as grass -fed. Sound pretty honest to me!
Farmfoods also sells pork, chicken and salmon that are all raised natural.
Shipping is done through UPS and the packaging contains enough dry ice to keep it frozen for a long time.
You can have a look at the farmfoods prices here!
Crow Cow Review(Back to Top)
Crowd Cow started with the idea that a few friends would by a whole grass fed cow and than after the slaughter would divide the meat.
Soon after that there was the idea to turn it into a business since so many people were interested in the idea.
Crow Cow has not only the option to choose your own meat, but also a subscription box that will be send to you on a regular basis that you decide on when to receive.
What I like is that you can read all about every farm they work with and what their opinion is about raising cows the natural way.
You can see the Crowd Cow store here!
Crowd Cow only slaughters a cow when all the meat is sold. This does however not meat that you have to wait long. Their high number of customers will take care of that.
Like I mentioned they also have 6 options for a monthly subscription box that you choose yourself.
I think that the concept of Crowd Cow will ensure that the meat will be in your freezer as fast as possible.

Butcher Box Review(Back to Top)
I am not sure but I think Butcher Box is one of the oldest online meat delivery programms.
The sell, just like the other ones, grass fed-beef and also free range chicken and heritage pork.
Like the name already tell us is that you build your own box of meats you like to order and than decide on one time or a subscription for the period you like.
I only think that the homepage of their website is a little hard to navigate. Reason for me to find a better link for you below.
You can find the How Butcher Box works page here!
Butcher box have a few options to choose from that varies from a all beef to the custom box that you set up yourself.
Butcher box always have promotions when you sign up and they change all the time.
Sometimes it is free bacon for life and than is it free salmon or sirloin. If you sign up at the right moment it can save you some decent money.
As far as I could find the butcher box is the only company that offers the option to purchase a gift card. That’s a nice present for anyone.
My Opinion(Back to Top)
A while ago me and my wife made the decision to eat a better quality meat and we choose for grass fed and finished beef and heritage pork. Most of the time we ate free range chicken but it is always nice to have more options.
Grass finished beef is an upcoming market now more people are choosing for healthier meat as part of their diet. This type of meat is how we ate it for centuries and it is the way it suppose to be.
Corn and grain finished meat it just to make to cow or pick gain weight as fast as possible to take it to the market.
I have no specific store that I recommend over the other. All the 4 stores I wrote about have a good reputation. Like any other store it is in most cases a personal preference where to order you naturally raised beef, pork or chicken.
I know that these reviews are limited and do not tell you all about these stores. Maybe I will write more indepth reviews on all of them.
Recommendations(Back to Top)
It is hard to tell you what to do and where to go for your meat. I suggest to click on the links in this what you could call online meat store review and read about their program.
You can also opt in to their newsletter and receive the items to have on sale in your inbox.
Nothing stops you from shopping on more than one website and see what they have to offer each month.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post and got an idea on where to start your journey to eating healthier with beef from a store that sells beef online.
