NEW: Meat Shares Available- For Local, Albany, and Montgomery (Orange County) region Delivery customers

We've been collaborating with our friends at Mountain Brook Farm to create a meat-share for the summer season. Note: Most of these shares were intended to be sold only through our vegetable CSA farmer colleagues, who don't have these products themselves, that's why these shares haven't been offered before.

However, we've found ourselves with some shares left over, and with the season fast approaching we are now offering them to customers who would like to pick up on our farm, downstate in Orange County or from us in Albany.

About R'Eisen Shine Chicken, Rabbit and Pork:

We believe that our livestock program grows both delicious and ethical meats. We both spent many years as vegetarians, so we try to integrate the most compassionate care for all of our animal partners.We raise our livestock with the utmost respect, and provide only non-gmo feeds. We pasture raise our animals, giving great flavor to the meats and keeping our animals happy and healthy. This will be our first year on this farm raising pigs, but have raised them at several other farms.

Here are a couple of blog posts explaining in more detail about our livestock methods:

About Pastured Beef from Mountain Brook Farm

The steaks, roasts, and ground beef included in the Meat Share are from Angus cattle raised mostly on fresh grass and hay with plenty of room to roam and ruminate. When the time comes, the animals
are brought to a USDA-certified, Animal Welfare Approved slaughterhouse.
