What can I expect in my "meat box"?
Our monthly meat box is a pay-as-you-go meat subscription for packages of our local, natural grainfed Angus beef and Heritage pork (and now Lamb and eggs!) available monthly. Unlike buying from a big-box store, CSAs are a great way to give money directly to the (in our case) farming family that raises quality local meats right here in the North Country... keeping your money LOCAL and promoting the local economy. You'll receive cuts of quality meats that vary month to month... Feel good about what you're feeding your family -
No antibiotics. No growth hormones. No GMOs.
What you receive will vary from month to month but the value will remain fairly consistent. Boxes can be any combination of:
Ground beef, burger patties, steaks, roasts, marrow bones, beef back ribs, short ribs, stew meat, ground pork, bacon, sausage (various flavors), hams (fresh or smoked), pork spare ribs, pork shoulders and more!
There will be fresh (never frozen) products included whenever possible! Remember- our quality meats are sold and served in restaurants, stores, schools and businesses all over the North Country. You won't be disappointed.
Our stuff is awesome... but hey-everyone is different! So if you get something in your box that you're not a fan of... Let us know and it will be noted for when packing your future boxes. Our goal is to give you quality, local meats that you love and can feel good about feeding your family due to the lack of growth hormones and antibiotics. Your satisfaction is essential.

(You pick the months-Perfect for seasonal residents and or "summer folks"... Up here from May to October?-- Perfect-1 box a month. May to September?-- No problem! Pick which month you'd like to double up your box. Maybe your last month so you bring some things home with you? Or maybe not because you plan on having guests and would like a little extra a certain month during the summer. Either way, we will make it work. Planning on coming up some time during the holidays?-- We got you! You can also save one or your monthly boxes for then. We are pretty easy to get along with and want this program to work for YOU.)

Many of you know this, but we have a son that has Cystic Fibrosis. So, naturally, we are taking the COVID-19 pandemic VERY SERIOUSLY. Until further notice (and who knows how long) you will see us doing deliveries and handling pickups at the farm with masks and gloves, etc. There is no hand-to-hand transactions. Pre-payment for your subscription by check is honestly preferred for the Cash/Check discount. Credit card is also available in our Online Store. If you prefer dealing in Cash, that is no problem either! We just ask that you have the exact balance due in a ziploc bag and you can just let us know where to look for it when we deliver and if picking up at the farm, we have a box for you to put it in and will be there to show you.
So please be assured we are absolutely taking every necessary precaution to keep you AND us healthy and happy! As always, please feel free to call Katie with any questions.
Head over to our ONLINE STORE to purchase your subscription, add-ons and home delivery (if preferred) by credit card!
