"I'd like to encourage you to think about the meat you eat. Is it good
enough? Good enough to bring you pleasure every time you eat it? What about the
animals it comes from? Have they lived well? And what about the way you cook
meat? Are you adventureous with it? Are you thrifty with it? Do you respect it,
and do it justice?"
- Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, The River Cottage Meat Book
The Healthy Butcher’s organic meat is worth getting
passionate about. We have individually selected our suppliers based on quality,
taste, and the proximity to our store. And we have ensured that our
farmers satisfy the highest possible organic standards.
Our offerings of fresh meat include Certified Organic and Locally-Raised Beef,
Chicken, Pork, Lamb, Elk, Bison, Duck, Geese, Rabbit, and much more.
What makes The Healthy Butcher’s meat
The purity, quality and flavour of our
meat is unsurpassed. Our meat has been raised on pastures totally clean of any
chemicals, without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones and grown only on
certified organic feed. The animals have grazed and foraged for their own feed
and have grown at nature’s pace.
We buy our meat in whole cuts, and cut
it fresh daily. And all aging is done by us the old fashioned way – air
dried in our own cooler. You will taste the difference! From winning
the Canadian BBQ Championship, to SteakGuys.com
rating our steaks magnificent (see below), to numerous
press reviews, the difference in quality is obvious.
All of our meat is brought in fresh straight from the farm
- never frozen. Come in to our store to see
what we have today, or call us at 416-ORGANIC.
What we offer you?
Are you craving a specific cut of meat
that you don’t see in our display case? Or do you wish to order rarer breeds
or game not offered on a regular basis? We will work for you. We will cut and order
meat that you cannot find elsewhere.
And we guarantee the authenticity of our
meat. If you want to know exactly where your meat has come from, we will
show you the documentation tracing your meat right back to the organic farm it
How do our prices compare?
We buy directly from farmers as much as
possible and avoid wholesalers and distributors. What that means to you is
that our prices are usually comparable to non-organic meat.
Of course, to raise animals by organic
standards costs more – more space is required for grazing, more time is required
to grow at nature’s pace, organic feed is more expensive, the certification
process is time consuming and demanding, and the traditional aging process we
use results in loss of significant product. So naturally, certified organic is
more expensive. But remember, you pay for what you get.
