Hey there! When I tell people I live in Vancouver, 80% of the time I get, “Oh wow, you are from Canada!”
There is a Vancouver in WA and it is about 20 minutes from Portland OR. Population about 630K
Here is some great places to get meat.
Old Brick Farm (Red Brick Farm)
Corner of State Route 503 & 154thStreet, Brush Prairie.
This is an actual small family farm in Brush Prairie. However, they now have a storefront at the above cross street section (don’t know the exact address). When I first happened upon them some years ago, they were just selling farm raised pork and beef. We purchased a half pig there and we even got to pick our pig. It was very cool. Best pork I’ve ever had and that lead me to explore other farms and butchers in the area.
Now they sell farm-raised chickens, eggs, homemade pickles, marinara, jam and a lot of other stuff besides beef and pork. It has been nice to see them grow.
They publish a monthly email newsletter letting you know what they have, when they will have it and any specials/discounts. Very friendly folks also.
Mayers Custom Meats
12903 NE 72nd Ave, Vancouver, WA 98686
This is a great place and all meat comes from local farms. My order of preference:
–Beef Jerky. They make it there and have several kinds. My favorite is the honey pepper. I have not had any better.
–Bacon. Next to the farm above, this is the next best for me.
–Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon
–They do bacon wrapped jalapeno peppers/w cheese, breaded pork and chicken cutlets.
–Lots of sausage
Very friendly folks.
4710 E 4th Plain Blvd, Vancouver, WA 98661
What this place has that the others above lack is Lamb! They also have a nice sized sausage collection. The meat seemed a bit more expensive than the two above.
Very nice folks.
Chucks Produce (local farm meats) – This is a grocery store. Good selection of local meats. I was able to buy American Wagyu Top Sirloin for $9…99/lb this month, but this place is really about the produce. Also, they do not sell pork.
New Seasons (local) – This is a grocery store. Good variety of sausage and all meats are high quality but come with a bit of a high price.
Battle Ground Produce (local) – This is a grocery store. Best thing – Their Meatloaf! It is unbelievable, but on the expensive side. Their meat is local. Great quality.
For a smaller town we have some great options.
