Where the Buffalo Roam
We've got fresh ground free range buffalo back in our racks and our pricing is about 30% lower than the other local markets.  Buffalo is a popular alternative to ground beef with 70-90% less fat than beef and 50% less cholesterol. It is also higher in protein, iron and all the omega and amino acids.    Buffalo burgers, stew, meatballs, or meat loaf can add a different twist to your menu planning.

Happy Chinese New Year - Try a Meat Recipe for Luck
The most important element of Chinese New Year is the reunion dinner which is held on the eve of the New Year. This is the time when all family members will come for a meal together in the parents or eldest brother’s home, or nowadays in restaurants as well. The reunion dinner spread is usually lavish, with multiple courses including dishes of chicken, pork and fish. Here's a few Chinese recipes that bring luck and may be used for the New Year.

Locavores Unite

When you buy from Long's you are buying local, or Oregon-raised, or Northwest raised healthier meat products. Our two top beef meat suppliers are Knee Deep Cattle Company for free range grass fed beef, and R&R Ranch for free range finished with grain- fed beef. For lamb we have used Anderson Ranch lamb products for years right here in Brownsville. For pork we have a partnership with two Oregon based companies: Carlton Farms and Tails and Trotters, known for their hazelnut fed pork). We have ongoing communications with our vendors -ranchers of sustainable free range and hormone-free animals. We are into our fourth decade with some of these vendors-one of the reasons that sets us apart from other retail meat providers.

Meat Packages Becoming More Popular
Our prices are lower than other healthy meat market counters in town and we offer even more savings with our meat packages program. We have three packages and lots of options for you to add certain meat products to each package.

"Roto Wednesday" is the official name of our rotisserie chicken day with free range roasted chickens ready to go from 4pm-6pm (and available by advanced order any day that we are open). Sometime we wax poetic with our Facebook posts....
Avoiding the kitchen? 
It might be that kind of day
Enjoy our rotisserie chicken
What else can we say?

Fridays between 4-6pm we have free wine tasting. Both have increased in popularity as they become a part of our traditions here at Long's.
