I'm not strict about my requirements. I don't care if they've paid their giant fee to the USDA for organic certification. I'm not looking for Kobe-style beef. I don't want anything special. I just want what I had nearby in small-town Virginia (about the only good thing going there except the guy who sold chinese dumplings out of a closet): The little farm not too far outside town where I can show up and buy a couple of pounds of more-or-less naturally-raised, unquestionably local beef stew meat plus a steak or two, or a handful of local thick-cut pork chops (poultry would be nice too). I live in an apartment by myself, so I just can't manage the half or even quarter animal many farms offer. I want reasonably-priced, locally grown meat I can buy somewhat close to direct from the producer in portions that I can eat in a week.
