MEET YOUR FARMER Saturday at Maine Street Meats!
Meet third generation farmer Carrie Whitcomb of Springdale Farm. The Whitcomb Family raises Jersey and Guernsey dairy cows in Waldo, Maine and also markets their "rose" veal at Maine Street Meats in Rockport.
Carrie will be here at 1pm Saturday, June 21st sampling her great tasting veal. If you have never tried pasture raised veal before - this is your chance!
At Maine Street Meats we purchase Springdale farm veal by the side and custom cut all retail portions in-house.
Springdale Farm Veal is considered “Red” or “Rose” because of its deep pink color. This color is developed through feeding the calves a diet of rich Jersey milk and hay harvested on our farm. Calves are hand-raised for 5 to 6 months to about 350 lbs. They get lots of individual attention, a comfy bedded pack in the winter and pasture in the summer. The result is lean, tender and full of flavor. Rose Veal is flavorful yet still much milder than beef. It is also very tender but has more texture than commercial veal.
