Got Meat? Barnum Hill Farm Meat CSA Now Open to Fairfield County Residents
Just in time for barbecue season, Barnum Hill Farm (BHF) is offering a limited number of memberships its bi-monthly Meat CSA, exclusively to Fairfield County residents. The Meat CSA brings all-natural, Vermont-raised beef, pork and poultry from a collective of small family farms right to your doorstep. These farms adhere to humane and sustainable practices in a healthy and humane environment, free of antibiotics and without use of artificial growth hormones.
The cattle raised for Barnum Hill Farm are pastured outdoors during the seasonal months, where they graze on a steady diet of lush grasses and clover. To ensure the perfect balance of marbling and flavor, cows are finished on a diet of natural grains prior to harvesting.
The pork included in the BHF Farm Meat CSA is sourced from farms, such as Duclos & Thompson in Weybridge, VT, who provide the CSA with flavorful, locally raised pork products that are prized by Vermont’s top chefs and restaurants. The poultry comes from Misty Knoll Farms, a family-owned and operated farm producing the finest naturally raised free-range turkeys and naturally-raised chickens available from Vermont.
This local pasture-raised beef and pork, as well as cage-free poultry, is more than delicious, it’s better for you and the environment. Barnum Hill Farm has partnered with other small farms that are preserving agricultural traditions that have existed in New England for generations.
If you like the idea of fresh, great-tasting meat, raised on small Vermont farms where animals are treated with respect and care, then you’ll enjoy getting a bi-monthly meat delivery from Barnum Hill Farm!
