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

At Firsthand Foods, meat is the farthest thing from a commodity. It’s the by-product of a deep connection between our North Carolina farmers and their 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 North Carolina farmers are at the heart of our success. Progressive Farmer Magazine thinks so, too! Our farmers share our standards and take pride in seeing their products on menus and in markets throughout the state. We collaborate with A Greener World and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems to stay on top of best practices. We invite you to meet our farmers below.
