So, today after doing a nice yoga class with Darin at his studio in Fredrick, we headed down the road to Dacono to find Rocky Plains Quality Meats. One of my classmates reccomended it to me as a source of locally raised grass-fed bison. It was a little bit of a drive, but well worth it.
We walked in to the little store front which was on the owners property, complete with bison herd grazing in the pasture. We walked in and were greeted immediately by Phil, who explained all about his quality meats, cuts and sausages, and told us all about the grass fed free range, pork, lamb and chicken which is also available there, and a local raw milk co-op! He also has jerky, some locally made condiments bison hides and horns.
We bought a small sampling of meats, including grassfed natural bison liver, and ensured Phil that we would be back for more. I've been longing for a local grassfed source of meat, and now I found one. I walked out of that little store front and felt really good. That is the way business should be done, between local people, caring about their products and their customers, and offering a well needed health giving product. I feel so much better about driving out to Phils place once a month, spending a few extra bucks to support a local ethical rancher, for excellent good for me meat, rather than at the Mega Whole Oats mega market.
Yay! Liver for dinner!!!
