Sourcing Meat

Hello Chownation -

My family and I are striving to both cut down on our meat consumption (though we're avid ominvores who like nothing more than bloody steaks) and source whatever we do eat locally and sustainably. For a while, we went to H Mart and Fresh World since it was economical (and you could acquire some really great cuts that you can't find elsewhere), but because of ethics, we returned to Whole Foods where we signed over our paychecks each week for about a 1/4 of what we bought through the Korean markets.

So... I've been looking at farms and meat shares. Smith Family Farm is local, but I've had a bit of trouble getting a hold of them and worry that it's a sign of bad customer service.

So Chowhounds -- do you have suggestions? Farms? Meat shares? Green Grocer? Eastern Market?
