You’ve heard it said, “You are what you eat.” Well, nowadays, we are what our food eats.” That’s why at Le FRENCH BUTCHER, we don’t just verify that all our animals are pastured and cattle are Grass Fed. We verify what kind of grasses and forage they eat too! All meats come from California ranchers whom we know personally.
CALIFORNIA – SUSTAINABLE – INCOMPARABLE QUALITY
Our ranchers are California cattle-families that share our passion for sustainability. Herds are rotated and the lands are enriched by the nutrients the cattle leave. It is part of Nature’s cycle that has worked just fine for centuries. Taste the kind of NON-GMO natural beef that America ate in the 1950’s! Our dedicated ranchers are turning back the clock.
HUMANE MEANS HEALTHY
All our Ranchers believe that natural is healthy because they know it works. Our cows don’t live in unsanitary stockyards and then get “finished” on grass for 3-6 weeks. They actually roam free in gorgeous fields and eat that delicious green stuff all their lives. They are treated with the utmost of care and respect and are never subjected to growth hormones, appetite enhancers or antibiotics. They grow at nature’s pace not ours. The result is incomparable, healthy, tender and delicious.
Part of the respect for the animal means valuing every part of its body. Centuries-Old French Butchery maximizes 90%-95% of the animal with unique cuts that American butchery tends to hack right through. Hidden gems like, “The Surprise” and pieces that take longer to excise like “Spider Steak.” From cuts that Americans use for stew, Jean-Claude can create tender, delicious steaks. Sign up for Jean-Claude’s weekly inspirations.
AMERICAN & CUSTOM CUTS
We are equally skilled in American cuts, just ask us for your favorites. Our meats are dry-aged by French standards (never less than 21 days) and can be trimmed by request to your preference.
