Pasture-Fed Meats

When purchasing pasture-fed meats, there are a number of questions you want answered.  What are the breeds?  Was the animal pasture-fed and pasture-finished?  Is supplemental feed used and, if so, with what?  Where the fields free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers?  Where synthetic antibiotics used?  What about hormones?  For a complete list of questions, see “Questions for Farmers/Vendors” in the Resource List.
