Alternative Meat Markets and Halal Production
Want to learn more about on farm processing and alternative meat marketing? Hear from Zaid Kurdieh as he explain how Norwich Meadows Farm has expanded their farm to include on-farm Halal Processing. Join us as we tour the far, learn the basics of Halal processing, and discuss strategies for securing alternative meat markets. Attendees will go home with an understanding of the regulations associated with adding on-farm processing to a farm business, as well as the challenges that produces may encounter when first entering an alternative market.
In 2000, Norwich Meadows Farm decided to expand the farm with the vision of creating a community supported farm and other small businesses. Today the farm has expanded to over 50 acres; their current markets include the green markets in New York City and CSAs in both New York and Norwich. They have over 50 high tunnels as well as an on farm processing facility.
