Introducing Mabel May Farms

Mabel May Farms is our most local supplier, we share an address, a farm field and our bees graze the fields alongside their grass fed sheep.  The farm supplies pastured and grass fed meats and eggs with particular focus on local Burlington raised grass fed lamb.  Meaghan, our farmer and co- founder, manages Mabel May Farms along with her husband Norm.  We sat down with Norm and Meaghan and asked them a few questions about their family farm, the food they grow and what they are excited about in 2020.
