Locally Pastured, Grass Fed Meats

It’s like night and day. The texture, flavor, nutrition, and soul of humanely-raised and local meat can make all the difference for your family. Doesn’t meat taste far better when you know where it comes from? You know that only humane living circumstances keep the animals healthy and well. You know hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, and other nasty chemicals aren’t used. Additionally, you know that your dinner came from nutritionally superior grass-fed livestock. Beef, chicken, and pork raised this way are profoundly different than what you’re used to.

And the perks? Flavor! Texture! Safety! Find unique cuts that aren’t typically mass merchandised. Get the best quality and listen to your family’s swoons as they chow down. Not all varieties come in “organic”, but rest assured, they’re all as natural as can be.

Pennsylvania farmers in the Lancaster area worked the land with integrity and now you share in the harvest. Your purchase helps support your local farmer and encourages the local economy. Whenever possible, choose local beef and local chicken. Unless you want something fancier.
