What are my options for local meat?

Luther | Apr 25, 2010 05:52 AM

I've seen meat farm shares mentioned here before, and sometimes people show up to farmers' markets with meat, but these always seem to involve frozen cuts.

Can we make a master thread of all the places I can go to buy fresh chicken, beef, lamb, pork or eggs? Farms or their direct retail outlets are OK. Details regarding growing conditions, whether antibiotics are used, and choice of feed would be good to know. Bonus if vegetables are available at the same location, or nearby.

For me, the closer to Boston proper the better, though I assume I will have to make a significant trip to get to most farms.
