Purchasing

One Farm - Two Ways of Processing

USDA

We have on hand USDA packaged pork and beef that is available for purchase. We use Caledonia Packing which is animal welfare certified.

Processing

USDA slaughtered animals are taken to the facility and we pick up the meat. It is stored in our inspected freezers until purchased.

Timing

We finish animals for USDA processing at different times throughout the year.

How to Purchase

We sell locally through Market Wagon or straight to you from the farm. Please email us at upstreamfarmer@gmail.com with questions or to schedule a farm pick-up.

Custom / Bulk Ordering

Buying pork and beef in bulk is an economical option for anyone with a big freezer. This gives you the chance to have more control over what cuts you get. Pork comes in whole or half orders. Yes, you do actually get all the cuts out of your half of the animal.

Processing

All bulk ordered animals are slaughtered right here on the farm by Earl’s Meats. A family run business, they take the carcasses back to their shop in a refrigerated truck for further processing and packaging. This service costs a bit more, but we feel that it is worth it.

Timing

Animals raised for bulk orders are finished in the fall; this year's butcher date is Sept. 29th. Frozen, packaged product is ready 2-3 weeks later. You pick it up from the farm. We are currently taking bulk orders for fall 2021.
