I took a drive to Grandview, TX (South of Ft. Worth) to visit The Burgundy Boucherie. This is the public butcher market where the Burgundy Pasture Beef ranch butchers and sells it's 100% grass-fed beef. That's right, no grain! Most grass-fed beef is finished with grain when it's sent off to the processing plant. But, since they don't send them off to a processing plant and process them in their own USDA inspected butcher market, there's no need to finish them with grain. :-) Of course, they also don't use growth hormones or antibiotics. Should a cow become sick, it is removed from the herd.
They also offer pork, lamb, and chicken.
I purchased some bone-in rib-eye steaks, which they cut and packaged in the Cryovac just minutes before I drove away with them. I took a peek into their butcher room where the two butchers where at work portioning and packaging beef.
