WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CORN FED VS. GRASS FED? 

GRASS FED:

  • Healthier product, higher in healthy fats (omegas), lower cholesterol

  • Healthier, happier animals

 

CORN FED:

  • Higher fat content generally (larger cuts possible)

  • Milder, sweeter flavour

  • Most corn products are GMO

  • Typically fed corn to fatten them up quicker, which means they may be barn raised

WHAT MAKES PRODUCTS FROM THE BUTCHER OF KINGSVILLE SO HIGH QUALITY?

Quality is the most important thing to us. We ensure our meats are steroid, hormone & antibiotic free. Only serving you responsibly raised meats. We provide all products from Ontario including our handmade, preservative free, fresh foods.

IS THERE A MENU?

We do have popular cuts stocked regularly and listed on our website. We have whole animal access, so anything can be available. For any custom or speciality cuts, please call us for pricing and availability.

WHAT IS DRY AGE? 

Dry age is always the best answer. It means more flavour and a more tender meat. Enzymes break down the fibers and moisture loss intensifies the flavour. This is not a standard practice due to the weight loss and time required to do it, since meat is charged by weight general retail would make less money on it. 

We offer custom aging and nothing is cut pre 28 days. On average most steaks are available at 40-50 days. Custom aging has been done as long as 150 days here! 

WHAT IS LOCAL?

We consider local to be meats raised in Southwestern Ontario. There are a few products such as Duck, Bison, and other Game, we do source from neighbouring provinces. Specialty cuts such as Japanese & American Wagyu are sourced directly from Japan or Iowa. Other than that, no meats come from the USA or outside of Canada. ​

WHAT DOES SHA FREE MEAN?

Steroid, hormone and antibiotic free.

IS ALL THE MEAT ORGANIC?

While we source animals raised as naturally and responsibly as possible, only our chicken, turkey and select products are fully certified organic.  Please ask for details or current availability.
