Gibson Family Farm - Valley Falls, NY
Dustin Gibson started his farming business as a cow/calf operation for Kinderhook Farms. He helped supply Kinderhook with calves so they could grow their operation. When we needed better quality pastured heritage hogs, Kinderhook introduced us to Dustin to see if he’d be up for the challenge. He took the project on with absolute commitment and has since been able to quit his day job and farm full time, exclusively for The Meat Hook. Everything that Dustin raises he sells to us, we have an amazing relationship. Dustin is fully dedicated to regenerative agriculture practices and has seen unbelievable outcomes in the health of his soil and the quality of his meat.

Oink & Gobble - Interlaken, NY
Our turkeys are raised on lush pastures in Interlaken, NY. The fields are dotted with large movable pens which are rotated regularly over fresh pasture. Each pen is a couple thousand square feet and large enough that the birds have plenty of room to forage in fenced areas about half the size of a football field. Inside the pens are covered aluminum frame structures for shelter. These structures are moved along with the pens every couple of days, providing the bird's shelter from inclement weather or the hot sun. Along with their natural foraging, the turkeys are fed a natural local feed that includes non-GMO corn and non-GMO roasted soybeans.
