Paradise Locker Meats

A third recommendation for eating safer, healthier foods is to get your meat from a local butcher. I recommend the Fantasma family’s Paradise Locker Meats for those in the Kansas City area.

Meat is one of the hardest items to buy when you start to eat healthier. It’s difficult to know what to look for, what’s good and what’s not, why it’s worth spending a few extra bucks, and where exactly the meat has come from that’s sold at the grocery store. One idea to make this process easier is to stock up on meat from a company like Paradise.

Family-owned and operatred, this business is the real deal. They provide quality meats that have not been treated with hormones and raised the right way. They get their meats from small family farms and do all of the processing and cutting on-site in their USDA inspected plant. They’ve won several national awards, and even been featured in the New York Times and other national media as an outstanding meat supplier.

Some of their selections include beef, pork, lamb, homemade sausages and more. You can make a trip to their store in Trimble, MO, or call to learn about other options for ordering and delivery. I’ve even recieved a few items from Paradise via my Fresh Connect delivery.

After watching Food, Inc. I’ve understood the importance of healthy, safe protein. Often I hear people say that they are “never” eating meat again after watching the documentary and hearing about the practices of large meat manufacturers. Paradise offers an alternative solution for continuing your meat consumption with a safe product that’s raised, cut and processed the right way. This is a great resource for those of us in the Midwest, and specifically the Kansas City area. For those of you out-of-towners, I believe they will ship to you you too! I encourage everyone to take advantage!

    Thanks for the heads up on more options. I went to Hy-
    Vee yesterday to buy some organic chicken breasts and found exactly ONE package in the entire store. I was really hoping for some frozen cutlets, but the only frozen chicken they had was breaded and fried stuff. Extremely disappointing.

    I might have to look at a FreshConnect meat delivery & split it with my family if I’m going to start cooking meat at home again on anything resembling a regular basis!

    Another great option is buying all grass fed (and grass finished, many are not) beef in “bulk.” Master’s Ranch, about 2 hours north of KC, sells 1/4 to whole butchered beef. No antibiotics or any of that, supporting a local family farm. Also, it’s way cheaper! My husband and I bough 1/4 of a cow (about 160 pounds), put it in the deep freezer and ate it for almost a year. The best part is that the price is the same per pound for every type of cut! While the ground beef is a little more than in the store (~$4/pound), the filet mingion and roasts are the same price (easily $10-$15/pound in the store). If you can go in with a few others and buy the whole beef, it’s even cheaper 🙂
