Calkins Acres Farm Fresh Food & Meat Processing

Whole Chicken

Our free range chickens are raised humanely with plenty of space to roam and grow. Rather than scarfing down extruded feed pellets in cages, they spend their days foraging for seeds and insects. Richly flavored and tender, they actually taste like chicken, not the bland meat that many Americans have come to expect. They are dressed, packaged, and ready for your favorite recipe.

Whole Turkey

Like our chickens, our free range turkeys are juicy and flavorful. They sell out fast, so order yours while they’re available!

Sold Out Until Fall of 2017

Whole Lamb

Our 100% grass fed lambs are a great way to fill your freezer with delicious, wholesome lamb at an affordable price. We'll contact you within 48 hours of receiving your order. If you'd like us to process your lamb, we'll ask which cuts of meat you'd like and schedule pickup or delivery of your meat at this time. Processing is not included, and costs anywhere from $45 - $130, depending upon which processing options you choose. The final yield of packaged meat will be approximately 40% of the animal’s live weight.

NOTE: You are purchasing a live animal or a share of a live animal. These prices do not include slaughter or processing. The buyers may pick up and transport their livestock anywhere they choose, or at the buyers request, the livestock may be processed by Calkins Acres. Calkins Acres is a USDA custom exempt meat processor, and can only process meat for consumption by the owner of the live animal, his/her family, or non-paying guests. Packaged meat will be marked "NOT FOR SALE"

PRODUCE

Freshly Picked Mushrooms

We cultivate a variety of mushrooms. They’re grown naturally on hardwood logs, not coffee grounds or manure. They only fruit a few times per year, so buy them fresh while you can!

Sold Out Until Fall of 2017
HONEY

Raw Honey

Healthy, local honey straight from our hives. Our honey isn’t blended, processed, or filtered. We DO NOT feed our bees corn syrup or sugar water during the honey flow, so you can be sure you’re getting 100% natural honey made from local white clover and wildflowers.

SYRUP

Red Maple Syrup

Try our delicious red maple syrup, made fresh every spring. We tap exclusively red maple trees, which produces syrup with a wonderfully distinct flavor and reddish hue. The pint size comes in a beautiful flip top flask bottle. Don’t forget to order our pancake and waffle mix to go with it!

Sold Out Until Spring of 2018
MIXES AND SEASONINGS

Lamb Rub


This is the perfect seasoning for lamb. Liberally coat chops, steaks, and roasts with it and let marinate for at least 20 minutes before cooking.

Individual Cuts of Lamb

Our grass fed lamb is now available by the package. It’s processed under USDA inspection and all cuts are vacuum sealed. All of our individual cuts of lamb are from animals aging 6-12 months.

Individual Cuts of Beef

Our all natural beef comes from Angus cross steers. The meat is beautifully marbled with just the right amount of fat. All of our beef is dry aged for 2 weeks, making it even more tender and flavorful. It’s processed under USDA inspection and all cuts are vacuum sealed.
