Meadowbrook Meat Market
Meadowbrook Meat Market, Somerset
Meadowbrook Farm has been in operation since the 1970s and has had a meat market for 23 years. Jim started raising hogs in the early 1990’s but the industry faced major challenges in the late 1990’s. Meadowbrook met the challenges by working with animal nutritionists to grow Omega Pork using all-natural, antibiotic and animal byproduct free feed – the first in Atlantic Canada.
Meadowbrook Meat Market started in a small building, open Saturdays to sell a side of pork, fresh cuts and ham. Over the years the Market grew exponentially, along with the size of the staff. Meadowbrook is provincially inspected and animals are slaughtered at a Provincially- inspected facility.
In October of 2007, a new, much larger processing and retail market opened with much more space for processing and for sales of Meadowbrook products and those of over 30 local producers.
Year round catering is provided by Pork on Wheels. New products are continually being developed, including the very popular wieners (Jimmie Dogs) and bologna, both of which are gluten and animal byproduct free.
Thanks to the support of their knowledgeable staff and their customers, Meadowbrook Meat Market is thriving.
