Firsthand Foods provides restaurants, retailers and institutional food service accounts with fresh, local pasture-raised beef, lamb and pork products.

We buy whole animals from the producers in our network who raise their animals humanely on pasture with no growth-promoting antibiotics or added hormones.  We sell a full line of fresh cuts and specialty products, and can do custom fabrication to meet your needs.

When you become a Firsthand Foods’ customer, you are joining a community of remarkable farmers, family-run meat processors, chefs, retailers and consumers who are committed to building a vibrant, delicious, and equitable meat supply chain in North Carolina.

Our farmers are proud to produce quality meats sold in local markets close to home. We’re excited to meet you, understand your needs and figure out together how to feature pasture-raised North Carolina products in your establishment.
