Dickson's Farmstand is a neighborhood butcher shop in Chelsea Market offering artisanal meats and house-made charcuterie. Our beef, pork, lamb, and poultry are sourced from small, family farms in upstate New York that are carefully handpicked for their humanely-raised, high-quality animals. We proudly share with you the stories of our farmers and their methods.
We search for farms doing something a little differently and select them based on quality, commitment to sustainability, and humane handling practices. We only work with farmers who take pride in their product and who want their name, before ours, on each package. We believe the farmer is a far more important part of this system than we are.
All our farms must meet the following baseline criteria:
- The entire supply chain (farm to slaughterhouse to Chelsea Market) must be no more than 400 miles.
- Animal-based feeds, prophylactic antibiotics, or added hormones are not administered at any point in the animal’s life.
- The animals from which our meat comes must spend their entire life on the farm – absolutely no CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) or feedlots.
