New Kid on the Block

By Marcus | In Nutrition | on February 24, 2011

I’ve mentioned before the benefit of meeting your farmer face-to-face and there is no better place to do so than at your local farmers’ market. Previously, we’ve talked a lot about the great rancher who runs Lindner Bison who sells (surprisingly!) bison, but the booth selling grass-fed beef closed long ago. On a visit to the Torrance FM last Saturday, I saw there was a new booth on site who sold not only grass-fed beef, but also pastured chicken!

John “Dey Dey” de Bruin was manning the booth and was very happy to tell me all about his operation and animals. He recommended I try their starter pack of 1 lb ground beef and a half chicken to get a sampling of what he has to offer. While they regularly visit the Torrance Farmers Market, they also have a website (Best Beef Ever) where you can mail order. His price list included a variety of choices — including organ meats. Although he didn’t have everything I was seeking on hand that day, he said with a phone call or email ahead of time, he would make sure to bring some with him next time I visited.


I was quite impressed by John’s friendliness and enthusiasm and will give him business in the future. Next time you’re at the Torrance Farmers Market, stop by and check it out!

    HMMMMMMMMMMMMM, marcus, are you trying to entice me with this post’s title and try and influence me to eat cows??
    nice try buddy.

    but that being said, marcus and i did talk about this exact topic earlier this week and while i still don’t eat animals that walk, i agree that grass-fed, cage-free, humane practices are better for the animal’s sake vs. a slaughter house (i will refrain from divulging in its horrors).
    so hooray for good farmers and their practices.
    and yay for new kids on the block. hahaha.
