Red Meat Market - The Company

Driving the Social Food Movement while empowering the local food provider

Long before factory farms, national retailers and international agribusiness emerged people knew what old-fashioned quality and pure goodness meant. They bought from friends and neighboring farms devoted to producing the finest meats possible.

Red Meat Market respects that traditional relationship and embraces the same relationship in social media communities. Our products are better for the animals, better for the people and better for the environment, but we’re much more than a place to buy local, natural meats. We’re a community of successful, thoughtful meat-loving people who understand the role local family farms and ranches play in creating a sustainable, healthy food system.

Red Meat Market is an online and offline social marketplace where meat buyers can easily source and order local, sustainable, all natural meat in one place from multiple local providers. Red Meat Market features all natural, organic or grass-fed beef, pork and lamb products raised in SW Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

Red Meat Market empowers our local providers with a powerful ecommerce platform designed to help market and sell their products easily. We truly do connect the “Farm to the Front Porch” with scalable technology. We also connect the “Ranch to the Restaurant” offline. Our goal is to make “Meat Buying” social and planning events like farm dinners, ranch visits, butcher parties and “Meat Ups.” (meat market + “meet Up” ). During our events you can “meat & greet” other locavores who work and live for a better food system”. Events and activities are planned weekly that connect 100% natural meat lovers with each other.

We’re supporting this culture by offering local meat from local people to 100% meat lovers everywhere who want to make a difference in the way we treat our animals, support the land and live full, healthy lives.

Good Meat from Good People.
