We offer high quality, humanely-raised beef that is consistently flavorful and raised to the strict standards of our "never-ever" meat program. No antibiotics. No hormones. No animal by-product feed. Ever. 

Our customers care about where their beef comes from. Our livestock operations focus on utilizing pasture to benefit the environment, increasing profitability for the farmer, and reducing the amount of grain in the animal’s diet. We specialize solely on beef raised without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones, instead using careful handling to provide consistency and quality.

Black River Meats offers three lines of natural beef products with options for both the retail and food service industries, including Organic Beef, 100% Grass-Fed, and Northeast Raised Antibiotic-Free Natural Beef. For our retail customers, we produce a full line of vacuum-sealed, case-ready beef products. For our butcher, restaurant and food service partners, we custom butcher our natural beef cuts to their specifications; quartered, primals, and portion cut.
