QUINCY, MA – February 23, 2024 –  New England Free Jacks announces the renewal of its sponsorship for the fifth consecutive season with the Slate Hill Cattle Company, formerly known as New England Grass Fed. This partnership reaffirms Slate Hill Cattle Company’s commitment to supporting the Free Jacks and the broader rugby community.

Situated at Cloverbud Ranch in Rhode Island, Slate Hill Cattle Company is renowned for producing the finest free-ranged, grass-fed beef. Trusted by numerous farm-to-table restaurants, their beef exemplifies the highest standards of quality and sustainability.

As part of the renewed partnership, Slate Hill Cattle Company pledges to donate $50 for every home try scored throughout the season to the Free Jacks Foundation.

There is no better protein source than Slate Hill Cattle’s premium New England beef. Our players love to fuel up on Slate Hill’s product, and it is a huge contributor to our performance on the field.” 

The collaboration between Slate Hill Cattle Company and the New England Free Jacks underscores a shared dedication to excellence both on and off the field. Through this partnership, both organizations aim to inspire individuals to reach their full potential through the sport of rugby.
