Some local butchers

The original butchers — bouchiers — only slaughtered and sold goat meat (which is among the world’s most consumed meats), but these local butchers sell much more than that and they are repositories of information about our food, specific cuts of meat, its qualities and how to best prepare it.

They are a wealth of information — as well as meaty deliciousness — so give them your support.

The Healthy Butcher
25 Bruce St., Kitchener, ON N2B 1Y4

Talk to Luke and his staff; they are butchering away tastily at The Healthy Haven, overlooking the expressway near Victoria Street. Like our other butchers, they are purveyors of a wide range of locally raised and healthy meats.
