Walden seeks to build long-term, profitable partnerships with producers committed to producing the highest quality animals utilizing the most sustainable methods. We are a mission-driven company, with the aim of reinvigorating New England’s agricultural economy in support of healthier animals, soils, and communities. As a buyer, we:
- Pay prices significantly above market index prices and above other regional buyers, with a focus on quality
- Offer long-term, recurring purchasing commitments on a year-round basis
- Aim to grow our supplier base alongside our growing customer base
- Do not have intermediaries between us and the end consumer – we deliver directly to families
We purchase 100% grass-fed beef, pastured pork, lamb, chicken and eggs that meet our protocols on an ongoing basis. For Beef, pork, and lamb, our preference is to work with year-round partner farms, but we also occasionally purchase from seasonal operations. We buy poultry raised outdoors on pasture from May to November.
We buy eggs year-round, raised on pasture in summer and in hoop houses with consistent, ample access to the outdoors throughout winter.
