Whole Foods partnering with local ranchers to serve organic meat in stores, schools

Whole Foods is providing Colorado with a whole lot of local beef these days. In Basalt, a newly opened franchise is teaming up with Crystal River Meats, a Carbondale-based sustainable food company, to provide youth in the RE-1 school district with natural ground beef for school lunches throughout the year. And along the Front Range, Whole Foods stores are now featuring grassfed beef products from Colorado-raised and -processed cattle.
