LOCAL MEAT & EGGS
Our Farm Stand is open for walk-ins and we also have appointments available. We are excited to offer our customers a great variety of local meats: beef, pork, whole roasting chickens, cut up chickens and eggs. Call the office for current product availability. If you are only able to come by on Tuesday or Thursday, please arrange for an appointment so we may help you. We continue to operate with social distancing and if someone already inside, please wait until they exit the door under the green awning. We are also glad to provide curbside pick up if you specify that when you call.
Orders are taken each day for pick up on the same day. Any items not picked up will be returned to stock. You may walk-in to learn what we have during meat shop hours if you are unable to call ahead.
Sides of Beef or Pork
We also sell sides of beef or pork. For $5 per pound, you pay us to raise your animal right here at the farm. We take a deposit to hold your side of beef or pork and balance bill you once we learn the hot hanging weight from the butcher. We provide you with the cutting instruction sheet and you communicate directly with the local butcher to have the side cut to your specifications. You pay the butcher directly for cut and wrap when you pick up your meat at their location.
Local, Hormone-Free, Pasture-Raised
At Toplands Farm, we have been raising hormone-free beef on the farm’s pastures in Roxbury, Connecticut for family and friends for over forty years. Our cattle graze the pristine pastures with access to all healthy grasses the property offers. Pasture-raising allows the cattle to gain weight naturally throughout the year. We supplement these rich grasses with Toplands Farm grown hay and a small quantity of protein-rich grain, resulting in a final product that is healthy, tender, and great tasting.
Our beef is slaughtered and butchered in a local USDA-inspected facility in Connecticut, dry-aged for twelve to twenty-eight days, packaged in vacuum cryovac, labeled for cut and weight, and frozen. By utilizing local facilities we can have our beef on your table less than five weeks after it left the pasture. Our butcher judges each carcass to determine the amount of time that animal hangs before cutting it to our specifications.
We take great pride in sharing our beef with those who appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into raising beef in this manner and are committed to supporting local farms. Each steak, roast or burger patty represents a piece of our farm, our family and our fields reaching your table. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
