  • How long will the meat last?  Meat is good for 1 year stored in the freezer.

  • Are all animals raised on the farm? Forks Farm partners with other local grass-based farmers to provide our customers with the best quality meat. These partners operate under the same sustainability guidelines and share our ideals.  Beef and lamb are always 100% grass-fed without any additives. Support of Forks Farm in turn supports our farm partners, the agricultural community and economy.
