ABOUT HUDSON VALLEY CHARCUTERIE
Raven & Boar Farm started with the simple idea of finding a better way to feed our own family. The Farm has grown to supplying meat and produce to restaurants throughout the Berkshires, Hudson Valley and NY metro area and Boston metro area as well as locally through farmer’s markets in New York City and New York State.
Hudson Valley Charcuterie produces small batch artisanal product lines of charcuterie and sausages exclusively from our own pigs raised here at Raven & Boar Farm.
We are nearing completion of our on-farm commercial production kitchen that will be an asset to our business and community. The kitchen will follow State and Federal guidelines in order to produce USDA and HACCP certified meat products on a small and artisanal production scale. The kitchen will initially facilitate our need to produce custom and artisanal Raven & Boar value added products in our own facility. In addition, Hudson Valley Charcuterie will be able to focus on other value added products such as cured, smoked meats, charcuterie and salumi.
This facility will be a place where local chefs and like minded individuals can connect with the “Farm to Table” concept directly for local food production as well as staff and client related events or training. We hope to collaborate with local businesses and educational activists to include community food education classes and possibly adult and children's workshops.
We have seen how visiting this farm has changed minds and lives, and by opening our doors to our community and clients we hope to be able to provide access to a new understanding of the Farm to Table experience.
The kitchen would not have been possible without the generous contributions to our Kickstarter project as well as the funds from the New York State New Farmers' Grant, and all of you who have continued to purchase Raven & Boar and Hudson Valley Charcuterie pork and products.
Hudson Valley Charcuterie products made with Raven and Boar meat, fresh free range eggs and local produce and herbs can be found seasonally at the Rhinebeck Farmers' Market, and year-round ( weather-permitting ) at growNYC's Brooklyn Borough Hall Greenmarket and Ft. Greene Park Greenmarket as well as special events and pop-up locations. Check the Raven & Boar website to find us!
