We're Expert Butchers That Touch Every Step of the Process
It starts with the farms.
Our 40 years of history guides everything we search for in farming partners. We seek out farming families that span generations, with a deep-rooted passion for their craft, and a history of doing things the right way.
If we don't know where it came from, we can't stand behind it. We work closely with farmers and producers around the country to ensure that they meet our standards.
No antibiotics, steroids, or hormones. Period.
We require affidavits from our farmers certifying that there are no antibiotics, steroids or hormones used when raising our animals.
Butchered like only we know how.
40 years of training taught us a few things. We butcher for a difference you can taste.
Our state-of-the-art facility gives us control over safety, quality, and taste.
We designed, built, and operate our own facility, to have unparalleled control over every step of the process.
Aging and trimming done right.
All of our beef (except ground beef) is aged in-house. The aging process naturally breaks down enzymes in the meat and reduces exterior moisture levels, condensing more flavor inside each cut. All of our meat and seafood is trimmed to exacting standards that allow you to leave almost nothing on the plate after a great meal.
Flash frozen to maintain the best taste.
Flash freezing speeds up the freezing process, to maintain flavor and taste for when the package arrives at your door.
Commitment to Compassion
The compassionate treatment of farm animals is incredibly important us at Rastelli’s. We believe we can do more and that is why for all of our products, we are committing to earn an independent welfare certification recognized by the ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program by 2021.
We are committed to sourcing the best ingredients we can from responsible farmers who care, and we're always working toward continuous improvement. That’s why we are working with the ASPCA® and joining the nationwide effort to improve the lives of chickens. As such, we will source all our chicken from farms that meet or exceed Global Animal Partnership standards as the GAP program evolves its standards in breed selection and housing conditions (space, lighting, litter, enrichment) as well as employ a multi-step CAS system, which is widely considered more humane, by 2024. To demonstrate our support for animal welfare and transparency, we will label our chicken products with the GAP welfare certification by 2024.
