Grass Fed Beef?

I don't know if this is exactly a "craving", but recently I have both read "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and seen "Food, Inc". I really want to avoid meat from the factory-type operations shown in the movie, but I am not a vegetarian, so I need to get some meat! I did buy beef that was "grass and grain" fed in my supermarket, but I don't know how much better that was. Since I live in the 'burbs, I don't have easy access to farmer's markets that feature meat products. My on-line search shows that I can order from out-of-state farms, but I would much prefer something more local that does not involve freezing the food and transporting it great distances. Does anyone have any ideas? I work in downtown Bklyn, but our market is also only veggies/bread/flowers.
