Good news for those of us who prefer to buy meat that’s come from happy, well-tended animals: Wild Trading Store in Woodstock now stocks free-range pork and beef.
It’s not always that easy to find free range meat, and even then there’s so little regulation in this country that one’s not always 100% sure that it’s the real deal. Organic meat is even harder to find, if not nearly impossible. That’s why it’s best, in my opinion, to find a shop that creates relationships with farmers, and who you feel you can trust to keep an eye on things. I believe Wild has this kind of integrity and will definitely be heading there soon.
And that’s not the only good reason to visit this fabulous shop: aside from browsing through their wide selection of fresh organic produce, bottled goods, cheeses, bread, you can also indulge in their new Farmer’s Breakfast, the ingredients of which are all seasonal and sourced from within two hours of Cape Town. Brilliant!
But wait, there’s more… Wild has teamed up with Faithful to Nature (more about them here) to offer customers a wide range of natural and organic products. So now you can get your organic veggies and natural products in one go (which means fewer trips). I think it’s a fantastic idea.
Wild Trading Store is located at 34 Salisbury treet (off Roodebloem Road), Woodstock. They’re open on Wednesdays between 3pm and 6pm, Fridays between 10am and 2pm and Saturdays between 9am and 1.30pm. You can order your free-range meat in advance – Wild will be taking orders for future collections.
