Local Meat Producers
All meat producers listed below are family-owned farms that use sustainable farming practices. All raise their animals in cruelty-free, ethical manners and do not give hormones or antibiotics to their animals. Or, as one farmer put it, “if an animal gets sick, we will treat it with antibiotics to preserve it’s health and well-being. But, we tag the animal and it goes to Purdue.”
