WHERE CAN I BUY LOCAL MEAT & POULTRY?        

You may remember that we published a list of farmers markets in our June newsletter.  It’s now on our website HERE. However, while the farmers markets do often have a local farmer or two providing meat, in some cases you can go directly to the farm to buy meat from the farmer, or buy from a local distributor who gets meat from nearby farms, or consult with a local butcher who can connect you with a farmer raising the meat you want.  In some cases, the farmers are selling whole, half, or quarter animals, and the butcher will process the meat into the cuts you prefer. In other cases, smaller quantities are available.

What we’ve assembled in this issue of the newsletter is a list of local farms and butchers that sell or broker locally grown meat, including poultry. This list is just the ones we know about; if you know of others, please let us know at info@seedsgroup.net , and we will add to this list on our website.

In addition to wanting to support local farmers and having fresher meat that doesn’t travel as far, some of us are interested in this because of the new agreement with China, allowing import of cooked chicken in exchange for China’s opening up their market for US beef. China has had food quality control problems in the past. That import hasn’t started yet, but could potentially begin after mid-July.  You can read more about the trade deal HERE.

Here is the list we have compiled so far, in alphabetical order by town:
