Local, Grass-fed meat from Homegrown Meats - La Jolla Butcher Shop

According to Caron at San Diego Foodstuff, a new butcher shop is opening next month in La Jolla called Homegrown Meats (7660 Fay Ave). They will be featuring locally raised grass-fed beef from Mendehall Ranch on Palomar Mountain as well as local wild turkey, ostrich, lamb, chicken, and duck - all hormone free. Go to the their site right away and click on the link "tell us what you'd like." Be sure to note grass-fed meat and make sure they know you want free-range poultry too!

I'll be back again soon with my final post - can't believe it's been a year already!

Melanie, I want to thank you for doing all this research and sharing it. Your blog is a valuable resource!

Happy to share!

very cool! I'll be curious to learn where they source everything from. some pastured-raised poultry would be so nice. I found some "local" chickens at a Whole Foods up in LA, but they were from Fresno and I can't tell much else about the operation from my little internet search.

Anyway, yes, thank you for all of your work!

Does this mean that your blog is going to end?

Melanie Lytle said...

E - yes, it does, although I'll be keeping it up and running and will be monitoring it, so the information will still be available.

Thanks for this info, my family and I will be passing through La Jolla next week and we will check it out.

Local poultry would be awesome--especially when you invite us back over and cook some for us!
Oh, wait...is it our turn?
