Vessel Meats’ Covid-19 Response

THANK YOU for the overwhelming response; to everyone reaching out to buy products or to offer help during these unprecedented times. Everything is changing every minute as your know and to be honest I have been headstrong against moving to an online ordering platform; as you know my business is built on individual customer experiences which is literally the opposite of an online ordering platform.

Based on feedback and the desire to make food available we have decided to operate under 3 different ordering platforms to make it as easy as possible for you to gain access to fresh, local food. You can access our products in 2 ways:


  1. Ordering direct.
    We are offering several packages for convenience. However if you require something more specific; then this is what that will look like.

    • Please email your order directly to

    • Please include your name, phone number, and delivery address.

    • We will confirm your order via email. If you do not receive an email it should be assumed we did not receive your order. Please allow us 24 hours for processing all email enquiries.

Due to the nature of cutting to order and fresh product processing we will not be able to accept custom orders after Tuesday evening.


Deliveries will be made in Dartmouth on Friday afternoons, and Halifax orders can be picked up outside the Brewery Market on Saturday mornings.

Orders for less than $50 will be subject to a $5.00 delivery fee and we will deliver to any of the main areas of Dartmouth. (North Dartmouth, DT Dartmouth, Woodside, Portland Hills, Cole Harbour)


Once we have cut and packaged your order we will email you on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning to confirm your order total. Your options for payment are etransfer or credit card. There will be an additional fee for credit because Square POS charges a huge amount for transactions processed without card.


Please bear with us as this is a huge learning curve for us and we are basically making it up as we go. We are at this time only offering basic sausage varieties, meat cuts and we are not producing any delicious creations at this time. Hopefully as we become accustomed to this new system we will be able to add to the list of items we can produce.


We are offering 2 packages in an effort to streamline food offerings for your family; but we can also fill customer orders avab

$50 Package:

1 lb sausage Bratwurst or Chorizo

2 x 1lb ground beef

2 pork chops

1 lb ground pork

1 lb bacon


$100 Package:

1 lb bacon

2 lb pork sausage Bratwurst or Chorizo

2 x lb ground beef

2-3 lb Beef Roast

4 pork chops

2 grilling steaks

If you are looking for something specific please do not hesitate to reach out. As with our farm market service everything is first come first serve so if you want something specific get your order in early. We are doing everything we can to try to accommodate everyone`s individual requirements.

     2. Online ordering through Alderney Landing Farmer’s Market / Halifax Brewery Farmer’s Market.


We will be offering 1lb packages of Ground Beef, Bratwurst and Chorizo sausage, 1 lb packages of Ground Pork and 1lb packages of Bacon through their online ordering platform. . All will be freshly processed, vaccum sealed, labeled and dated with all required government labelling.



If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email or phone 902-448-9106 (I will return all evening calls the next day.)


Update on Primrose

Things are still moving along up on Primrose. I am still cautiously optimistic that we might be able to move some meat out of there before all this is over. Our walk ins are being installed at the beginning of next week and should have some refrigeration within a week and a half. As long as construction industries remain open and health officials stay on the job we might be able to get this operational and make food more accessible in these weird social distancing, surface sanitizing times. (Remember that sanitizing and cleaning and hand washing is already about 80% of a butcher’s job) and with pre ordering in the shop it should be relatively easy to get food out to you. We are having no supply shortages, in fact local farmers need the support now more than ever. Even if the grocery store runs out our suppliers will not.
