Bespoke Butchers is a social venture
At Bespoke Butchers, we stand up for the whole hog, the entire chicken, the complete cow and the full lamb. We believe in working directly with local farmers who raise animals using the best methods of animal husbandry that, above all, prioritize animal welfare while maintaining long-term sustainability of the land. This principle allows us to pay a fair price to knowledgeable farmers who are practising a “beyond organic” way of farming; and, in turn, to deliver fair prices to our community while providing full transparency and peace of mind to our customers about the provenance of their food.
Bespoke sources its products from dozens of small Ontario farms, which allows us to find truly unique and seasonal products. There are so many benefits to sourcing local products, including higher levels of vitamins and nutrients, safer meat, reducing your carbon footprint, and let’s not forget, better taste!
We believe strongly in the ethical treatment of animals, which is known as high-welfare animal husbandry. The animals are pasture raised and can free range, forage and root in a stress-free environment.
Raising quality animals means growing excellent grasses. Our farmers practise crop rotations of local plants to help regenerate the land.
We spend considerable time finding and vetting the best farmers. Our procurement team personally visits every farm at least once a year. We work with farmers who prioritize ethical treatment, raise their animals on pasture and don’t use foreign inputs.
Linton Pasture Pork
Linton Pasture is a small farrow to finish family-run farm located in Walton, Ontario. It is a niche market pork producer who believes in humane and sustainable production. These pasture pigs are raised outdoors between spring and fall, and during the winter season, they are raised in an old-fashioned bank barn with an outdoor option.
Fenwood Farm is certified organic. Their animals are fed on a proprietary blend of grains, corn and legumes and are raised in modern buildings with clean well water, fresh air to breathe and access to natural sunlight. Our 100% organic grains are grown without pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or synthetic plant regulators.
LAKE HURON, ON
Hoffnung Mennonite Co-Op
The Howick Community Farms operate as a small co-op at the edge of Lake Huron. This tight-knit group has provided Toronto with quality pasture-raised proteins, eggs and other provisions over the years. Elverne Wideman is the curator to the Hoffnung’s bounty, a middleman for traditional Mennonite practices.
