Our Sources

Where do you get your meat from?

We source all our proteins from Premier Meat Company, a leading supplier in the food industry, serving high end restaurants in Southern California and Vegas for decades.

Is your meat sustainable?

Yes! We source exclusively from family farms and ranches with high standards of sustainability.

Do you carry Halal?

We do not stock Halal products, we can, however, place a special order for them. This would cost a nominal fee and add time to your estimated delivery date.

Is your chicken organic?

All chicken cuts in our store are Petaluma Poultry’s free-range chicken. They were never given antibiotics, hormones or steroids. They were fed a 100% vegetarian diet and are a Non-GMO Project Verified product. Petaluma also offers USDA certified organic chicken. The difference between their organic chickens and the chicken we offer is that the food they were fed was organic. Both were raised on sustainable family-owned farms, air chilled and fed a natural diet. The reason we offer their free-range chicken and not their organic chicken is that our company also serves to restaurants who do not have a high demand for organic chicken products.
