This is only a small selection of grass-fed beef available locally. More local farms can be found at Eat Wild Colorado. Purchasing by the whole, half, or quarter animal is can save you money; check with farmers about this option, often in the late summer and early autumn when the pastures are going dormant.
This list is provided as a resource; users are encouraged to ask the farmers about the diet and care of their animals.
