    At Forage Farms we sell meat boxes, not individual cuts. It’s about honouring the animal and minimising waste. We don’t slaughter our animals on a large scale and ship portion sized loins or legs off to the big supermarkets in plastic wrap. We raise whole animals. It’s all meat, and it only takes a little creativity to use the cuts we aren't familiar with.
