Are you looking for sources to buy local meat? A farm where you can meet the farmers and see where the animals are raised? Well, look no further. Did you know Dale Family Farms out of Protection, Kansas delivers all over the state of Kansas? They deliver every month here in Dodge City. They currently have a list of drop off locations and if you can’t find yours on their list you can give them a call and see if you can make that possible. Check out the calendar for Dale Family Farms .
Not only will you be supporting a local business but you will be paying people who care about the animals they are raising. When you purchase whole food to create your own healthy dishes it is an investment. If you eat well you will feel well. The less processed the food you are consuming the more you will be getting out of it. Sure processed food is cheaper but you have to buy a lot more of it to feel satisfied. Don’t forget to calculate the health care cost of getting ill because your body is nutritionally running on empty.
What is it that I like most about Dale Family Farms? Well, first of all, they come to you! You order online from the comfort of your own home and pick it up at the drop off location on the scheduled date. Second is that they have grassed finished beef. What is the difference between grass finished and grass fed? Well, if it is just grass-fed beef, that cow may have been pasture raised the first part of its’ life but finished off with grain. A pasture fed cow is turned into a feedlot cow the final days of its’ life to fatten it up. Grass FINISHED beef was on pasture up until the day it was butchered.
Keep it Simple, Keep it Whole, and Keep it Local!
