At Farmway our meats are IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) and individually vacuum packed. Traditional freezing slowly freezes the meat creating large ice crystals that result in a soggy texture and loss of nutrients once thawed. Quick freezing greatly reduces the formation of ice crystals and preserves the structure of the meat. The IQF process maintains taste, texture and nutritional value.
The addition of vacuum packing further maintains quality by preventing freezer burn, dehydration and exposure to air that can speed up spoilage. IQF and vacuum sealing extends shelf life and minimizes waste.
The bonus of having individual portions is that you only need to cook up what you need, even if it’s a mix of steak, chicken or pork. No need to cook up an entire tray of meat before it spoils. Farmway makes it easy, convenient and eating naturally raised local meats tastes great!
Since our meat orders are completely tailored to your individual family’s needs our pricing varies. We work within your current grocery store budget to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality products at the best value. Our professional Food Consultant will go over all the details of your order including pricing during your in-home visit.
Don’t worry! If you don’t have enough freezer space for your order – we will provide you with a FREE freezer. Our professional delivery staff will deliver your free freezer with your order and pack it for you. Ask us for more details.
With over 27 years in business, what do our customers have to say?
After the first year with this company we could no longer go back to grocery store meats because we had gotten used to the high quality of meats offered by Farmway Foods
Farmway Foods has changed our lives. Having the best quality of meats at our disposal anytime during the year is very important to us.
We have been a customer of Farmway Foods for 6 years now. I have nothing but positive things to say about this company! The food is fantastic, convenient and they stand behind their products 100%. I love how they support local farmers.
I really cannot say enough great things about this company and personally love the steaks and burgers that they offer. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to save time shopping and also those who want to help support local farmers when it comes to their beef/chicken/turkey, etc.
We have been with this company for 7 years now. The meat (no hormones & from local farmers) is all packaged in convenient sizes so that we only use exactly what we need. The kids LOVE the bacon and we LOVE the chicken.
I was skeptical too at first but this quickly went away after receiving our first order. Now we have been with Farmway Foods for the past 5 years! It is reassuring to me that my kids are eating meals that do not have any hormones or antibiotics. Even better is that we are supporting our communities by using local farmers.
