Butcher shops


Butcher shops are all about meat, but not every butcher shop specializes in grass-fed, pasture raised, or free-range meats. Here’s a national map of humane butcher shops. Click on your state to find a shop that sources the majority of its meat from humane farms.

What's humane?


Everyone defines "humane" differently. Humaneitarian takes a broad, inclusive view: that "humanely raised meat" should at least come from animals that weren't raised in the standard factory farm way.

So a humane butcher shop (as defined here) primarily sells meat that is:

  • 100% grass-fed
  • Grass-fed, then minimally grain-finished
  • Pasture raised
  • Certified organic
  • Free range
  • Humane certified

There are many butcher shops in America that sell a little bit of humanely raised meat, but they aren't listed here. Email Humaneitarian if you know of a great butcher shop that's committed to the humane treatment of animals.
