When we decided to open a butcher shop, we thought a lot about how butcher shops were run and operated before the “industrial food revolution” after World War II, and took lessons from those who came before us. It made sense that with more and more people focusing on what they are eating, that we could go back to a simpler time when livestock was raised simply, locally, and sold purely.
And so the focus became animals sourced from local farms that are naturally raising their animals, with no hormones or antibiotics. Beef that is 100% Grass-fed and finished, Heritage breed Pork that is raised naturally and fed non-GMO grains, Lamb that is pastured, and Pastured Free-Range Chickens. This is the way all animals were raised in the past, and we thought now is the time to bring back “Better tasting food, that’s better for us”.
We are a whole-animal butcher shop that fabricates everything in house. We personally visit each of the farms we represent on a regular basis, to meet the farmers and see the way the animals are being raised. We also believe in responsibility to our community and the environment around us. We recycle here at Louise Earl, as well as compost, so that we can contribute to the regeneration of the earth that gives us so much.
