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 labels that indicate how the animal was raised.
Here are supermarket chains that deserve a bit more explanation:

Small is beautiful!
Most supermarket chains buy from large food companies or farming cooperatives, not small farms. This is because they need to keep up a large and steady supply of meat, which small farms can't supply.
But co-op grocery stores and natural food stores are small enough to source from individual farmers. Chances are you'll find local meat at these stores, and they'll have a meat manager who can tell you about farms in your area. This is helpful if you aren't able to shop at your local farmers' market.
To find a co-op near you, see the list maintained by the Co-op Directory Service.
