Meat, Eggs & Dairy

Eatwild.com provides research-based information about "eating on the wild side." This means choosing present-day foods that approach the nutritional content of wild plants and game—our original diet. Evidence is growing on an almost daily basis that these wholesome foods give us more of the nutrients we need to fight disease and enjoy optimum health.

Few of us will go back to foraging in the wild for our food, but we can learn to forage in our supermarkets, farmers markets, and from local farmers to select the most nutritious and delicious foods available.

Eatwild has been providing information about the benefits of choosing meat, eggs, and dairy products from pastured animals since 2001. Now founder Jo Robinson is providing new information about fruits and vegetables as well!

 Find your way around Eatwild...

Eatwild was founded more than 10 years ago. It's mission was to promote the benefits—to consumers, farmers, animals, and the planet—of choosing meat, eggs, and dairy products from 100% grass-fed animals or other non-ruminant animals fed their natural diets. Today it is the #1 clearinghouse for information about pasture-based farming and features a state-by-state directory of local farmers who sell directly to consumers.

Coming soon, Eatwild.com will roll out a new look and a whole new component to the website. In addition to providing information about healthy meat, eggs, and dairy products, it will feature brand new information about choosing extraordinarily nutritious fruits and vegetables as well. The new section will complement Jo Robinson's new book, Eating on the Wild Side, the first book to reveal the nutritional history of our fruits and vegetables and how we have squandered a host of essential fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in our 400 generations of farming.

Jo's book offers page after page of new information about the foods we eat and some simple steps we can take to reclaim many of those lost nutrients. Read more...
