    Has anyone found a good and economic source for pork / bacon that is grassfed or at least not fed grains?

    Pigs are omnivores. They eat a lot of things, unlike cows whose native diet is grass and plants. Not sure that it's possible to have grassfed pork. Pastured pork might be a better thing to search for.

    Pork/bacon is comparatively high PUFA, so I personally avoid it. YMMV ofc. Pork consumption is also correlated with liver cirrhosis.

    You can get wild caught pork here:
    http://www.texasgrassfedbeef.com/faq/wi ... and-prices

    From their site: "Our 100% American, wild-caught, grass-fed Pigs roam wild on all natural land wherever they please. Nobody feeds them and a wild pig will eat vegetation, other animals, fruit, nuts, and whatever else it figures is edible. If they are held for a few days or a week or so after being caught, they will be fed grass hay, alfalfa hay, alfalfa cubes, or clover hay (all natural green leafy plant material). No strange feeds such as 'starch-free' plant proteins, grains, cottonseed meal, and what-have-you are allowed."

    The Slankers are good people and I've purchased from them many times.
