About New Boston Beef
New Boston Beef is the product of my deep-rooted love and respect for the land and agriculture. The purpose of New Boston Beef originally began to provide local food enthusiasts and restaurants with the highest quality grass-fed beef directly from the farmer. Over time it has developed and changed with current trends to educate customers, not only about farming, but also respect for animals. The food they provide as well as the drastic efforts made to sustain a healthy life for the herd before selling the highest quality product to the public. Purchasing directly from me, the farmer, makes it such a personal connect to you, the customer and the ripple effect is felt as New Boston Beef, LLC grows with the demand for local and hormone free meat.
New Boston Beef, LLC has been fortunate enough to work land purchased 35 years ago by Ross and Susan Eddy, my parents. I have been able to grow up on this farm, learn from my dad and neighboring farms to become who I am today.
In 2013 I met my wife, who oddly enough, had the last name of a steak, Salisbury, and is a chef. She is my biggest advocate, and the personal chef behind my business.
We married in October of 2016 in my barn
and it was a day we'll never forget!
September 2018, just before we closed purchase on the farm.
Jonathan Charles, 8 days new, meeting the cows!
In late September 2018, we purchased my family's farm. We couldn't have timed it any better, as just 6 days after closing, our son was born.
Jonathan Charles Eddy will only know life on the farm, and we couldn't be more excited to raise him outside, in the dirt, surrounded by cows and a garden and all that farmlife means!
2020 has been a year for the books; in all things good and bad, for everyone! We grew our family again, and welcomed Emersyn Ruth to the farm in late February. Business during Covid and having 2 young babies kept us both busier than ever before and we could not be more grateful.
2021 brought more love to our family with a wonderful surprise, Juniper Adele! The farm herd has grown more and more, and we added 4 pigs to the mix as well. July brought over 20 inches of rain to Thompson, CT and our garden met its demise pretty early in the season. In this photo, Jonathan is just shy of 3, Emersyn is almost 19 months and Juniper 8 months.
2022- a great year all around for our farm family. The kids are all growing, learning and enjoying farm life. All 3 participated in the garden, getting seeds in the ground, harvesting, selling and of course, eating! It was not a good hay year with out a drop of rain for almost 2 months this summer but with the stellar weather this fall I was more productive with hay after Labor Day than the entire summer.

Mass produced beef and meat is often "grown", not raised, on feedlots. When you purchase meat from a big name super market, you support this type of growing. When you buy from New Boston Beef, know that this animal was treated with respect from start to finish, and it was raised, not grown for mass production.
