We drove up to Hawi the other day.
The recent rainy weather had Saddle Rd. and further north the greenest I've seen in a long time.
Although, they still had the "Extreme Fire Danger" flag flying.
Also, I've never seen so many happy, contented cattle in the pastures along the road before.
That brought up a conversation about local, pasture grown, grass fed beef and its availability on island.

I assume KTA is a place where local beef can be bought.
Where else in the Hilo - Puna area can local beef be purchased?

When passing through Honokaa, JJ Country Market on the Waipio end of town, mauka side of road, sells very local, Andrade family, beef. Well worth the few minutes/miles out of your way..

There’s a rancher in a truck that comes to Makuu Market every week. He’s got beef, lamb and pork he raises himself.

At the Maku'u Farmers' Market Double D Ranch (I think) in the blue trailer (on the highway side) has local grass feed beef, pork, etc. Very nice guy (Darcy) with yummy meat.

Most of the 'local' beef is shipped to the mainland before slaughter and fattened with feed - in supermarkets the meat can still be labeled as local and grass fed.

So you may not be buying what you think you are - depending on what you're thinking!

If Darcy is to believed (and I do) his beef and other meat products are locally raised, fed, butchered. He has gone into detail about the issues he has had with getting a certified butcher on Island
(down to how much the labels cost).

It took years to get that 'Mobile Slaughterhouse' permitted and up and running - perhaps Darcy is using that service?

I don't think he is using the mobile service. I want to say he uses some place on the Kona side.

I was excited to see that the trailer at Makkuu Market had local meat. I passed it every week and just assumed that it was cooked for on site consumption. Bought several lamb chops on Sunday for a special dinner tonight. Marinated it, cooked it up on the grill, tasted great and was absolutely unchewable. We ended up throwing out 3 expensive pounds of lamb. Very disappointing, pretty embarrassing to serve this to guests and a total waste of money.

Sorry to hear about that, Kalianna. For local produce and chicken, lamb and beef, and some hard to find things, you might try The Lovacore Store in Hilo on Kamehameha Ave (on the bayfront near Cronies). I've never been disappointed there. It's not the cheapest place but the fruit, vegetables, and meat are hard to beat - all local. The website is being updated right now, but in case it becomes useful again soon, it's:

https://www.bigislandlocavorestore.com/

Apparently, they're adding an online store.
