We offer year-round meat shares from Herondale Farm.
Herondale Farm (www.herondalefarm.com/weekend-market) is a small family-run farm in Ancramdale, New York, committed to raising livestock in an environment of sustainable agriculture. They manage their land resources in partnership with grazing animals, strive to increase land productivity, optimize water resources, preserve food sources, create sustainable livelihoods and remove carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. They grow the grain they feed livestock when they are not on pasture (winter). Their livestock is 100% free from hormones, antibiotics and steroids.
They offer monthly grass-fed, pasture-raised on organic fields in 20, 15 and 10 pound beef/pork/lamb/chicken shares. 10-pound chicken-only shares are available starting in June until November (often times into December and even into February). All meats come individually vaccuum-packed and flash frozen. There are no half shares, but people frequently split shares by finding a partner and alternating pick-up months, or purchasing a share every other month.
Pick up is once a month, on the first Wednesday of the month in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
Subscriptions are on a rolling basis and you are billed monthly. For the meat shares, you must sign up for a minimum of 3 months. The farmer handles all sign-ups and payments. If you have any questions, please contact Herondale Farm or call them at (518) 329-3769.
