“Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants.”

Michael Pollan, The Omnivore’s Dilemma

We believe that eating less meat– and eating high-quality, pasture-raised meat– is better for the earth, animal welfare, farmers, and consumers.

Four Steps to Help You Determine if Our Meat Membership is Right for You 

Check out the pictures of the sample shares on our membership page to get a sense of what the average volume looks like with each share size. Bear in mind that you get to put your own order together, so the volume of your order may be smaller with cuts like Filet mignon, or larger with a Picnic roast or broth bones.

Check out the meat tabs on our website. We have images and descriptions of most items that we keep in stock with a price per pound and estimated price for package for each item. Note: Our prices are comparable to what you might find at a reputable local farmer’s market that features pasture-raised meat.

Check out our online store to see what we currently have available. We only accept orders from members, but perusing the catalog is a great way to get a feel of what we offer. Click the store link on the membership page; fill out your login info; we’ll give you access. Your online store account will be all set if/when you’re ready to choose a share size and payment plan.

Try a sample share. With our “Meat Curious” share, you can place a $25 order and get a feel for how the process works as well as how the meat tastes in your favorite recipes. No strings attached: if it works for you, we’ll fold you into the membership plan of your choice. If not, your card will only be charged for the order you place. Plus, our Meat Curious share comes with a free dozen eggs!

If you would like to stall or cancel your subscription at the end of a payment cycle, send us an email at edensmeats@gmail.com and we will take care of it for you.

We will consider cancellation requests in the middle of a payment cycle, but in general we ask for members to continue with the payment plan they signed up for. We have tried to incentivize a longer term commitment with discounted rates for Yearly, Quarterly, and Monthly payment plans because this helps us with cash-flow and planning.

Yes! You are welcome to order as much as you want each time as long as the total order is at least $50.

Any overages will be invoiced through our online store (using Square) where they can be easily paid with a credit card.

Short answer, yes.    

There are three options: 

  1. We can try to match you up with a buddy–someone you see regularly, or another member who lives close to you inside of the free delivery zone.
  2. We will deliver to your home for a $10 fee
  3. You can pick up at our farm in Cedar Grove for free.


Eating is an agricultural act.”

Wendell Berry, The Pleasures of Eating

We are creating a mutually beneficial relationship between farmers and eaters who are working together to regenerate soil and revitalize our local economy.

“We have been City Slicker members for just about a year and have loved every moment! The first time I sat down to order our monthly share I was happily overwhelmed by the variety of offerings. A real bonus is that our meat is delivered right to our door, what a dream! Over the past year we have discovered some favorites and must haves (chorizo!) and make an effort to try a new item every month to expand our culinary repertoire. We believe in supporting local farms and businesses as often as our budget allows. Our membership with Edens Meats allows us to support sustainable, local meat producers that respect their animals and aim to offer top quality products to their community. We are so grateful that we found them!”
Mika Twietmeyer

“Edens Meats has made it possible for our small family to solely consume meat products that are locally and sustainably raised at a fair price. The product options are vast, and everything we have ordered has been truly amazing. Meats are delicious! We enjoy learning how to prepare new cuts we may not have tried otherwise (stew with beef chuck roast last night was mouthwatering). Chas makes monthly deliveries easy and effortless. We love having a freezer full of beautiful, delicious and humane meat options to enjoy and share with family and friends. We're eagerly planning out our next order!”

As a hunter, angler, and general lover of the outdoors, the source of my meat is very important to me. I have searched high and low, looking for meat that is minimally-processed, high-quality and produced near where I live. Edens Meats has been a game changer. Since we've signed up, we never want to buy meat or produce at the grocery store again. The quality of the food and flexibility of delivery options makes it a no-brainer. The bacon and chorizo take my breakfast burritos to the next level! Thank you, Edens Family!

Our family are big fans of Edens Meats. The brats are simply the best! The taste is outstanding, but so is the knowledge that we are supporting area farmers.
Norman Wirzba
Homesteader Member
The eggs from Edens Meats are fantastic: brightly colored yolks, good structure on the whites, great flavor, strong shells. You can tell they're happy chickens. They make a great omelette, frittata, fried egg, soft-boiled, souffle -- you name it.
