For 65 years, the pride of our company has been our partnerships with local family farms.
MFB continues the work of our founder, David Mosner, to strengthen our ties to regional farming families. We’re committed to raising livestock in bio-dynamic environments that encourage good health and natural behaviors, have positive environmental impacts and give our customers access to wholesome products that they can trust.
A foundational piece of our mission is to support small family farmers that raise pastured, vegetarian fed animals without the use of antibiotics or added hormones. We proudly offer beef, pork, lamb, and poultry programs from the Northeast to our customers who believe, as we do, in the positive health, environmental, community and social impact of supporting local food initiatives.
Check out some of our programs and partner farms highlighted below.
BRIAR WOODS FARMS
Briar Woods Farms is a micro-network of small family farmers in Western and Central New York State.

All of the participating farms are Step 2 rated by the Global Animal Partnership.
PENNBROOK ACRES FARMS
Pennbrook Acres Farms pigs are born and raised on five family farms in Lancaster, Northumberland and York Counties in Pennsylvania. Pennbrook farmers are united by their common values to ensure that livestock are raised ethically and with care. This program is Step 2 rated by the Global Animal Partnership.

Their farm is Step 2 rated by the Global Animal Partnership.
Since 1790, the Martin family has been farming in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts. Today, the 8th and 9th generations of their family raise heritage breed pigs in spacious environments without the use of crates or antibiotics.

NEW YORK STATE POULTRY
Raised in the Finger Lakes and harvested in the Catskill Mountain Region of New York State, our chickens are raised under the care of multi-generational Amish farming families.
