Tender, flavorful and always antibiotic free—that’s better meat.
A shared commitment to humane animal raising practices
Quality, local meat from the farm to your table


Black River Meats brings high quality local meats to you from a select group of family-owned farms in Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York. We are committed to our agricultural landscape and supporting the growth of sustainable farming practices in New England. We work closely with our farmers to source beef, pork, and lamb raised humanely and naturally. As a true never-ever natural brand, we source meat exclusively from farmers who never use antibiotics, hormones, or animal by-product feed in the raising of their animals. 


Our Commitment

Black River Meats produces high quality meat products, including beef, lamb, and pork, sourced from local farms in Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York. Our animals are raised with care by farmers we know personally who share our values of transparency, sustainability, and health and safety. 

I know when I order Black River Meats that I will get the best quality. Their commitment to local farms is very important to me as well and I feel assured that I can rely on Black River's consistency.

I just cooked some thin-sliced smoked pork that I bought at the Richmond Market in Richmond, Vermont. I have to tell you that it was one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life. Period. Seriously unbelievable. I hope to find it at the market again. Thank you for producing such a superior product.
Black River Meats speaks of two things to me: local & trustworthy. Customers seek out our restaurants because of our excellent food, but also because of how we source our products in a local, sustainable, and ethical way. The meats we source from BRM meet all those expectations and do nothing but help move our mission of great & local food forward.

Who likes mystery meat? Not us and not our customers. We believe choices matter and that’s why we are proud to bring our line of ethically-raised meat products to kitchens, restaurants, and retail stores throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and New England.
