Walden is fantastic! We have been so happy with everything we have received! Delicious meals have been made out of everything that has been sent to us in our share. The delivery is easy and reliable. I highly recommend Walden Local Meat Co.

I've been a customer for close to two years now. One of the best decisions we've made. The best tasting meat and they're a great company to deal with. Plus, you're supporting local farmers. Can't recommend them highly enough.

I’ve been a Walden customer for over two years now. I love having control over my share and being able to get hard-to-find cuts. Their transparency is comforting, and I enjoy knowing the local farm location where my products come from.

Frequently asked

Rather than a la carte, we sell meat in shares, offering a different selection of the highest quality, hand-selected cuts each month.

We evenly distribute every cut across our member base, utilizing the whole animal (organs sold separately).

We print the name of the farmer and town where the animal was raised on each package.
Although all of our suppliers pledge not to use pesticides, herbicides or antibiotics of any kind, not all of our suppliers have pursued USDA organic certification because it is tremendously costly for small producers.

We have found that there are other, perhaps more important, indicators of quality and sustainability. Most beef that is certified organic still comes from a cow raised in a feedlot, where it is fed corn or grain, which is completely unnatural for a grazing animal. Although it’s great that the corn is organic, any type of grain wreaks havoc on a cow’s digestive system and produces meat that is much less healthy: higher in saturated fat and the “bad-fat” Omega-6s.

We think our own standards are much tougher; you can learn more about them on our standards page. Our beef is 100% grass-fed and finished – they receive no grain, no soy, no corn, and no wheat ever.
Yes, indeed. Seafood can be added to your monthly share OR chosen as an add-on. You can also opt in to receiving shellfish if desired.

We offer a rotating one pound each of two different fish every month (2 lbs total). Some species include: haddock, swordfish, hake, monkfish, black sea bass and pollock (no shellfish).
Yes, you can cancel or skip a month anytime by selecting the skip or makeup day option on your member page, unless your share has already been assembled (your share is packed a few days before delivery, and we send you a few email reminders!).

If you’d like to skip multiple months, just email us at and we’ll put your deliveries on hold while you’re away. You can restart at any time without having to re-enter all of your information.

If you'd like to cancel your membership, please contact member experience by phone or email. We also offer every other month, or every 3rd month shares if this works better for your family!
We currently deliver free of charge all the way from Portland, Maine to Central New Jersey. If you are outside the delivery area, we are happy to deliver to a work or friend’s address!

Our meat generally reaches our members more quickly than a typical industrial producer would – mostly because it is traveling a shorter distance.

What depletes the flavor of the meat is not letting it age properly (in the case of beef), slowly freezing it or quickly de-frosting it (as in a microwave). After dry aging, our beef is custom cut and flash frozen, transported in a below-zero degree freezer, and left for you packed with cold packs and/or dry ice.

We believe this results in the best tasting meat possible.
