Sustainably Raised Foods
We believe there is a lot of truth in the old adage that "you are what you eat" and, well, who wants to be a chemical preservative or a steroid? Not us! That's why all of our meats are humanely raised and processed with non-GMO feed and NO steroids or hormones. We sell pasture-raised (free range) chicken, organic pork , and fresh American lamb that have never been packaged, frozen or pre-cut!
Come try our delectable thick-sliced bacon cut to order – it's definitely a favorite with customers! We grind, cut and produce many products in small batches right here on the premises, which means our ground chuck is actually 100% chuck steak and our sausages and specialty burgers are always fresh and void of any dyes or artificial preservatives. Our grass-fed beef is dry-aged on the premises until ready to be put in the case and cut to your order. Come enjoy Ventura's authentic butcher shop – and so much more!
Great Plains Beef, based in Lincoln, Nebraska, is a premium beef producer exclusively marketing Certified Piedmontese® beef. The Piedmontese breed originated in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, where it was prized as lean beef with a natural tenderness.
Certified Piedmontese cattle are fed an all-natural vegetarian diet. They spend the majority of their lives grazing open rangelands and are carefully finished on a high-quality grain diet. Humane handling, natural and healthy feed, and the wide-open grasslands of the Great Plains create an environment conducive with raising all-natural cattle—without the use of antibiotics or added hormones. Certified Piedmontese cattle are processed in a USDAinspected, state-of-the-art processing facility. A rigorous, comprehensive HACCP plan, five- to six-step intervention program, and knowledgeable, experienced staff all contribute to a safe, high-quality end product.
