Local Meat Buying Guide
WHERE CAN I BUY LOCAL MEAT & POULTRY?
Here 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 firstname.lastname@example.org , 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 opening up their market for US beef. China has had food quality control problems in the past. You can read more about the trade deal HERE.
Here is the list we have compiled so far, in alphabetical order by town:

Eating food from local farms ensures the food is fresher and more nutritious, supports your neighbors and the local economy, and reduces transportation costs, spoilage and vitamin loss, and carbon emitted when food is shipped in from other states or even other countries. It’s not always obvious how to find out about all the local farmers markets, so we’ve listed the ones we know about here. The list below may not be complete: please let us know about any in the area that we forgot. This list doesn’t include farm stands or shops for individual farms, or permanent shops that sell local farmers’ products. Check the websites for the most up-to-date information.
