Our Commitment to VT

Our Commitment to VT

Our animals spend their entire lives in Vermont. They graze on green grass during the summer months and winter in Vermont family barns.

Vermont Family Farms shares a genuine

concern for our planet and the health of

our customers. We do not advocate for

people to eat more meat but hope

that those who elect to do so choose

a local source, sustainably raised

with concern for the environment

and the welfare of animals.

Ground Beef

What makes our beef different?

It starts with responsibility.

We believe that we have a responsibility to both the animals we raise and the environment as a whole. With this in mind, Vermont Family Farms is committed to the practice of dual-purpose animal agriculture. We work with pasture-based dairy farmers in Vermont to re-purpose retired organic dairy cows. Our cows live long lives on Vermont farms where they graze on green grass during the summer and non-GMO organic grains in the winter. Vermont Family Farms is proud to complete these animals' journeys in a respectful and non-wasteful way. When they arrive at our small-scale facility, they are humanely processed into our organic ground beef.

Our Roots

In 1979, Mark Curran & Steve Birge pioneered Vermont's local food movement when they formed Black River Produce, New England's premier supplier of locally-sourced food. From day one, Mark and Steve have been committed to working with and supporting small, family-run farms. They carry on this mentality today as they work to establish a viable meat economy within Vermont.
