If at all possible, consider buying local and directly from the farmer themselves. This cuts down on the chance that the meat you’re buying came from livestock on a family farm, plus you can ask the farmer whatever questions you want about how they treat their livestock. There are even some who might let you take a tour of their farm to see for yourself.
If you can’t get meat from a farmer’s market or similar arrangement where you can meat the farmer yourself, try to look for meat that is specifically listed as being “free-range,” “organic,””certified humane raised,” ‘grass-fed” (for cattle), or the like. Unfortunately, there are loopholes big enough that you could be eating grass-fed free range organic beef that still came from a cow that spent most of its life in what you would probably consider a factory farm. Basically, do your research and be aware, and you should be able to at least get an idea of where your meat is coming from.
The only thing you can realistically do is go to the farm yourself.
