cows in a pasture

Sign up for Meat Shares from Spring Lake Farm

Ulla Kjarval’s family has been raising pastured pork, lamb, poultry and 100-percent grass-fed beef for well over 30 years at their Spring Lake Farm in the lush valleys of Delaware County in upstate New York. Having sold to buying clubs in New York City, Kjarval and her teacher husband recently moved to Long Island and decided to start a club, Long Island Meatshare, offering her family’s pastured and grass-fed meats.
