Local Beef debuts at Phillips Andover

One of our nation's oldest and most prestigious prep schools has deepened their commitment to local family farmers. We have worked hard with PA to develop a list of core items on their menu that they can source from our regional farmers. Last week they featured Slow Roasted Top Round from Ioka Valley Farms in Hancock MA and with the resounding success will follow up with Burgers raised on Golden Acres in Waterloo NY. We are honored to partner with this leader in the Sustainability Movement and support their commitment to Green Initiatives.
