7 alternative sources for high quality meat

Zaycon Fresh, a popular food source for people looking for high quality meat, closed its doors on June 25.

It is with deep regret that we inform you that as of June 25th, we are suspending business operations.

Zaycon Fresh has put forth monumental efforts to endure recent challenges but conditions are such that this suspension is necessary.


Updates will be forthcoming as we are able to provide them.

This sudden announcement leaves a lot of us looking for a source of high quality meat for our families.

If you include meat in your diet, choose grass-fed meat. Food that's as close to “wild” as possible, where animals are able to eat a natural diet with a higher quality of life, is usually the most nutritious and lower in toxins. It all comes down to avoiding CAFO (Contained Animal Feeding Operation) meat. CAFO meat production is inhumane, awful for the environment and yields food that's higher in antibiotics and far less nutritious.

Where Can I Buy High Quality Meat?

You can buy grass fed meat from a local pasture-based farm (Find one near you using EatWild.com's map) or online. Hunting, raising your own animals, or joining a local coop to get meat are a few other options. Some people also choose to go plant-based altogether instead.

If you want to find high quality meat online, check out these sources:

Healthy Traditions

Healthy Traditions (formerly Tropical Traditions) has grass-fed beef, wild caught salmon, and really high quality coconut oil.

Northern Waters Smokehaus

I'm obsessed with this eatery in Duluth, MN. They have specialty and smoked meats and fish that you can order on their website.


ButcherBox has monthly meat delivery plans and offers 100% grass fed beef, free range chicken, and heritage pork. This is the most budget- and family- friendly option I found online!
