The Co-op supports small, local farms
that provide a more humane environment for livestock.
The Co-op’s fresh and frozen meat, poultry, and pork are among the best-selling products in the whole store! That’s because we are one of the few places customers can go to find trustworthy sources of a wide range of types and cuts of meat. All of the farms we purchase from are free-range and do not use antibiotics or added hormones.
We carry certified organic meats; however, our customers particularly enjoy our offerings from hard-to-find New England Farms including Miles Smith, Misty Knoll, Brookford Farm, and North Hollow Farm. These small- and medium-scale farms provide a more humane environment for their grass-fed livestock, and this comes through with healthier meat that is higher in omega 3s and lower in saturated fat. Our quality national organic and natural lines include Applegate Farms, Niman Ranch, Robie Farm, and Smart Chicken.
The dairy case includes a fully stocked dairy cooler with raw milk from Brookford Farm and Benedikt Dairy, organic dairy products from Organic Valley, yogurt, butter, local eggs, and a wide range of vegan alternatives.
