We are located in central Maine on Route 201 Lakewood Road, Madison on top of Yonder Hill. We offer both fresh and frozen beef, buffalo, venison, pork, chicken, lamb, seafood, haddock, shrimp, wild sockeye salmon, scallops, lobster meat (knuckles & claws), as well as a large selection of both chicken and pork sausages. We have a large variety of Gluten Free products. We also offer Cascadian Farms Organic fruits and vegetables as well as a full line of Frontier Organic spices.

Rick and Tracy Kniffin are third generation Kniffin's and owners of the Madison retail location and the processing plant in North Anson. Be sure to call (207) 635-2500 and ask for Rick for booking your animals and processing them.
Most of the meats at Kniffin’s comes from free-range grass fed animals on Maine farms within 75 miles of the Kniffin’s processing plant in North Anson. The Kniffin family carefully inspects each farm before adding it to their vendor list. We support farmers who practice sustainable agriculture and humane treatment of livestock. In addition, the meat at Kniffin’s has no fillers, MSG, artificial sweeteners or starches and the store also offers nitrite-free bacon and hams. Nor do we knowingly purchase livestock utilizing methods of genetic engineering or irradiation.
We use Herring Brothers' slaughterhouse in Guilford and then process all the meats ourselves in North Anson. We smoke our meats the Olde-Fashioned Way, in our smoke house. All of our meats are vacuum-sealed.
We have more than just meat. We are also selling Maine honey, Maine maple syrup and preserves, such as jam and Mrs. K's homemade Apple Cidah Jelly and Calico Beans. We offer a full line of Frontier spices. There are also Maine Castine candles and a variety of handmade honey and goat soaps for sale.
Our products might be a bit more expensive than meat cuts that could be found in the grocery store, but people are paying for local and quality. At the grocery store you don’t know where the meat is from. All our pre-ordered meat packages are flash frozen and vacuum-sealed, so our customers know it’s fresh. Why buy from out of state when you can get it local?
