What to do when grass-fed/pastured meat not available

I have the option of buying grass-fed beef sometimes at my local grocery store. They seem to be sold out of it, however, more often than they have it in stock. While I'm clearly learning the lesson to purchase larger quantities and freeze some items (ground beef and pre-made patties, for instance), right now I'm stuck not knowing what's best for me to purchase when it's sold out. 

 

Do I get the conventional, prepackaged meats in the meat section of the store and/or order from the meat counter? Is there any added benefit to purchasing directly from the counter over the refrigerated aisles?

I suspect the two come from the same source, and they prepackage because most shoppers are in a hurry and just want to pick up their meat in the quickest, easiest way possible.  But it's possible that the stuff behind the counter is slightly fresher.  Talk to the person behind the counter and see if they can answer your questions.  It can't hurt, anyway!
