I decided several years ago that Bucks County folks needed to know where to go to get good meat—locally. Not from a supermarket, but from some of the great butchers and farms right here. So here is a post on where you can find locally raised, locally butchered good meat. Click on the links to go to their web sites for more information.
Included on this list are stores that come recommended, by us or by others. That said, this is not a “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval” or anything. Some sell organic, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, pastured and local meats. Some don’t. I put everything out there. You make the choice. But these places do have a following. I’ve also noted, when I know for sure, if they sell fresh vs. frozen. I haven’t mentioned supermarkets for obvious reasons although I will say that Wegmans (Warrington) can be a good source for organic and antibiotic-free, hormone-free meats, as well as Organnons.
