Southern Maine's first whole animal butcher shop is here! This is how we bridge the gap between local, humanely raised animals and your plate.
We practice whole animal butchery, and our goal is to bring back the neighborhood butcher shop. We want to slow things down and go back to a time when the term “local” wasn’t a foreign concept and when your family’s meal didn’t come in styrofoam and plastic wrap.
Be a part of southern Maine's first whole animal butcher shop and fill the gap between locally, humanely raised animals and your plate.
After years of planning, researching, planning, chances of fate, planning and a little luck, we are in the final stages of preparation to open our location in Kittery, Maine. The funds raised by this campaign will go directly to the purchase of equipment needed to outfit the shop and to open our doors, including: deli cases, custom built walk-in coolers and curing rooms, slicers, grinders, butcher blocks, freezers, band saws, hack saws and, perhaps, a knife or twenty.
At MEat we believe that farms are the fiber of our community and that while many people have the desire to support them they simply have little or no access to do so.
This is where you come in! By being a part of the MEat family, you will become part of the solution. You will ensure that farmers have a year round, viable and constant outlet for their product and will eliminate a bottleneck that has kept local meat out of our kitchens for far too long.
We know that you want to know where the animal was raised, what it ate, what it didn't (no chemicals, hormones, etc.) who the farmer is and how much care went into the finished product. Heck, we'd love for you to shake their hand!
