Our Meat

When it comes to eating meat, quality matters.

There’s no way to substitute for standards. That’s why we pay special attention to every step of the process. From food to bedding, our animals are cared for. We make sure to accommodate their natural tendencies - cattle like to roam, hogs like to move dirt with their snouts, and chickens like to peck.

After all, quality is influenced by how the animal lived: Was it healthy and content? Was it ever given antibiotics or hormones? Was it humanely raised on a farm with sustainable practices?

These are the questions we ask, and you should too.

ButcherBox strives for excellence in every area, and that includes working with the best possible meat processing facilities. We work with companies and farmers that are dedicated to doing the right thing – never cutting corners, and always looking for ways to improve.

Every facility operates based on the principles set out by Dr Temple Grandin, and is equipped with the latest technology. They are inspected and approved by the USDA or a comparable agency, and there is someone on site at all times to ensure our products surpass safety standards.

We also believe in fair labor practices. In line with our family and community values, our partners treat their employees as part of the team.


Our Beef

We guarantee that ButcherBox beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished.

Our cattle are free to range on grassy pastures throughout their entire lives, suckling from their mothers for the first 6 to 9 months, then eating their natural diet of grass. Thanks to the climate, they graze year-round, with access to shelter when needed. Besides being delicious, the health benefits of eating grass-fed, grass-finished meat are abundant.

  • 100% grass-fed & grass-finished.
  • Pasture-raised and free to roam.
  • Packed with key nutrients like Omega-3s, vitamins and minerals.

Our Pork

Duroc, Berkshire, Chester White – Our heritage breed pigs possess distinguished ancestry.

Heritage breed pigs are special. Their natural, “old-world” genetics mean that during their slow maturation process, they develop the fine marbling and great flavor that nature intended them to have.

  • Bedding in open barns.
  • Plentiful outdoor access.
  • Nutritious, all-vegetarian diet (forage + feed).

Our Chicken

Our free-range organic chickens spend their days roosting in barns and exploring the outdoors.

Along with thoughtful enhancements such as hay bales and places to climb (chickens love to jump up to high places!), we make sure they stay stress-free at each stage of life. The result? Birds that are juicy and unbelievably flavorful.

  • Roosting in barns and specialized enhancements.
  • Plentiful outdoor access.
  • Nutritious, all-vegetarian diet (forage + feed).
