Meatshare 3 comes from the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Farmer Judy and her husband have followed evolutionary nutrition for eight years. They apply that same philosophy to their animals. All animals are humanely raised in pristine natural environments. Judy works with her butcher to produce products free from additives and to preserve all the healthy delicious fat.
The lambs are 100% grass-fed and pastured. Being of the Tunis breed, they are descended from ancient fat-tailed sheep from the Middle East. Tunis are known for their flavorful meat and delicious fat.
The pigs are Tamworth, a heritage breed known for delicious bacon. They are raised in the forest except for jaunts in the fields to glean leftover crops like cabbage.
Poulet Rouge chickens are free range and unlike the miserable Cornish chickens you find at the grocery store, full of delicious juicy flavor.
We will drive to Secaucus, NJ to pick up this meat on November 6th. If you come to the pickup you get first dibs on cuts, but you must bring a cooler and we would love it if you would help me and John get our meat back to our drop-off points in Park Slope or the UES since neither of us has a car of our own. If you can't come to the pick-up we have two drop-off points: one in Park Slope, the other on the Upper East Side. The Park Slope one will be at Prospect Park West and 3rd and 7 PM. Details for the UES one are forthcoming.
Your $52 deposit provides $50 worth of meat at these prices, bring cash when you pick up if you want the option to buy more. If you end up with less than $50 worth of meat we'll provide a refund. Your deposit allows us to guarantee payment for the farmer's work. Per lb price estimates are:
