Atlanta/ local sources of grass fed, pastured, humanely and sustainably raised meat and dairy.

Disclaimer: I'm completely stealing the title and most of the message below from another thread, because it's well written, and expresses my sentiment:

It seems like it might be very useful to have a dedicated thread to sources of all the above including stores, farmer's markets and individual farms here in the Atlanta of generally outlying area.

Some of us want to know that our food comes from humanely treated animals, or from eco friendly, sustainable practices, or want the healthiest, purest we can buy and some want all the above. Personally, I care about humane certification, sustainability and pasture time. I don't want my food dollars to support inhumane practices, and would rather not eat meat (which is yummy!), than contribute to a farm that treats it's animals poorly throughout their lives.

Locally, there's Fudge Family Farms pork from Alabama, and meat products available and labeled on the 1-5 scale from Whole Foods, and products at our local farmer's market.

Can others contribute to a list of producers that qualify? The more we ask, the more we know, and the more others know that we care.

Thank you.
