our whole foods has a local grass-fed section of the meats that is only meat from North Carolina ranchers... i assume that's OK.
it's amazing the difference between the two sections. the meat that is grass-fed is dark red and hardly any little white lines of fat and then the corn-fed has tons of thick white lines of fat and just doesn't look as appetizing. Our grass-fed beef isn't too pricey though when compared to the other meat they have. For the best meat, at most, maybe a dollar more.
