Featured: Grass-fed Beef, Pastured Pork, Dry-cured Salami, Lacto-Ferments

Founded in 2015, Short Creek Farm is situated on 300 acres of field and forest in Northwood, New Hampshire, straddling the Great Bay and Merrimack River watersheds, a physical and metaphorical connection to the place we live. On our farm, we produce farrow-to-finish pastured pork and grassfed beef in an ecologically conscientious manner, and we use our own farm-raised pork and beef to produce our distinctive seasonal, limited-edition, homegrown products. We also source humanely-raised Berkshire pork from other American family farms to produce a line of popular flavors that are available all year long. We believe that good food starts with good farming, and we only use the highest quality ingredients in all of our products.
