Why Grass-Fed Meats Make the Best Charcuterie

Hello there, food lovers! Have you noticed the buzz around charcuterie and grass-fed/pastured meats lately? As someone who’s spent a lifetime sharing the joys of good food, I’m absolutely thrilled to see more folks appreciating the art of charcuterie and the richness of grass-fed meats. Here at The Art Of Charcuterie, we’ve always been passionate about quality, and that’s why we source our meats from Pioneer Butchery and Charcuterie, a premier local purveyor of grass-fed/pastured, naturally-raised meats in Calgary Alberta.

Pioneer Butchery and Charcuterie: A Bridge to Heritage

Pioneer Butchery and Charcuterie, based in Calgary, Alberta, is leading the way in meeting the growing demand for grass-fed/pastured, locally-sourced meats. This company, built around tradition, aims to bridge the gap between rural producers and urban consumers.

Their mission is to connect customers to their heritage by providing products made with locally sourced, naturally raised meats, reminiscent of the good old days.

Understanding Grass-Fed Meats

Understanding Grass-fed/Pastured Meats

Grass-fed/pastured meats, like those provided by Pioneer Butchery and Charcuterie, come from animals that have been raised on a natural diet of grass, as opposed to grains. These meats are not just more flavorful, they’re also healthier. They have higher omega-3 content, fewer calories, and are leaner compared to grain-fed counterparts.

Moreover, grass-fed/pastured farming is kinder to our planet and promotes animal welfare, which aligns perfectly with our philosophy at The Art Of Charcuterie.
