Well, practically all pastured chicken and pork are also grain fed. I will discuss only these. If you want fully grass fed, ruminants and rabbits are your ticket. Although pigs eat acorns in large amounts in the wild, and acorns are no different... (more)

Goats are quite similar to cows in terms of nutritional needs, they are not sheep! They do have differences (cows are grazers, goats are browsers). In terms of what is good and bad, the problem with grain-feeding is not grain-feeding itself,... (more)

Propably, if you eat the whole animal, like kidneys, marrow, salivary glands? I wonder if its near the tongue, or somewhere else? Organs are like CPU the of the animal, they have everything. Muscle meat is just a casing ;)

If it's anything like chicken, you'd want to look for "pasture raised." Poultry doesn't eat grass. Your best bet would be to find a farm that raises turkeys or look for them at your farmer's market. I'm not a turkey expert, but at our farmer's... (more)

Commercial CAFO beef is not bad, it's not optimal. Grain-feeding isn't actually that bad for cattle, assuming it's not the primary source of nutrition for the animal. Hay/grass supplemented with grain is perfectly fine, aside from the minute... (more)

grass-fed beef is naturally leaner, as grains are used to fatten up cattle, as it is not part of their natural diet. You can get leaner grain-fed if you have too, but the fat in grass-fed is healthy with higher concentrations of Omega-3 and CLA... (more)
