A note about grocery stores…
Supermarkets often sell their own brand of meat, labeled with the store’s name and logo. This is called “private label” meat; supermarkets buy it from other companies and usually charge less for it than meat from independent, branded companies. As with any meat you buy, a private-label product should feature one of the 5 major labels that indicate how the animal was raised. Here are supermarket chains that deserve a bit more explanation:
Most supermarket chains buy from large food companies or farming cooperatives. But co-op grocery stores and natural food stores are small enough to source from individual farms that might be located near you. To find your local co-op, see the list maintained by the Co-op Directory Service.
