Jenness Farm offers goat meat (ground, greek sausage, kabob, stew, liver, kidney) and all different cuts of pork (larger quantities available upon request). You can buy their meat at their shop in Nottingham, NH (directions at their website) and a selection will be available at the Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers' Markets.
New Roots Farm has pasture-raised heritage breed pork available at all of the upcoming Seacoast Eat Local Winter Markets. A word of advice, arrive early, they typically sell out in just a few hours, if not less!
Pinewoods Yankee Farm in Lee, NH has ground, stew, rib and sirloin steaks along with a couple of roasts. I love her ground beef. You can contact her at esawtelles @ aol . com.
Sea View Farms, LLC in Rye, NH has a variety of cuts of buffalo - steaks, ground, patties and sausage, all individually wrapped and frozen. They expect to have more meat like stew meat, roasts, ribs, and kabobs to offer in the months to come. Also available this month are 1/4 shares of buffalo. The buffalo price list is available online. This is a great way to save a bit of money by buying in bulk. They also have whole chickens for $3.05/lb. Each chicken is about 5 -5 1/2 lbs and frozen. Please contact the farm directly (contact info on the website) to place your order and schedule a pick-up time.
