To some, it’s a supply chain. To us, it’s a relationship.

At Firsthand, meat is the farthest thing from a commodity. It’s the by-product of a deep connection between a farmer and his or her land. It’s the result of unwavering attention to quality. It’s a face and a name. It’s a handshake that grows into a hug.

Our relationships with farmers are at the heart of our success. These family farms share our standards and take pride in seeing their products on menus and in markets throughout North Carolina. We invite you to get to know them below.
