Do you know what your eating? do you know where it comes from? Most of us eat meat a majority of the week, but where does it come from? More than likely from factory farms in the Midwest, where animals spend most their lives in cages, injected with growth hormones and preventive antibiotics. Supermarket chains Buy portions of these animals from a small pool of sub-primal cuts to maximize profits without any regard for the waste or damage caused by factory farming.
Butcher’s Son takes pride in supplying our customers with 100% locally sourced meats from our farm partners all in the Corning area. Our goal is to provide stewardship to the animal as we implement culinary techniques to utilize virtually the entire animal. We don’t receive our meats in boxes or bags like the massive supermarket chains, nothing is pre cut in a factory in china, Everything we do is local. Our meat comes in large primals, halves, or even whole carcasses, all from local farms. We offer custom cut meats of the very best quality and lineage with the primary goal being sustainability.
We age beef in house to provide unrivaled taste and texture that supermarkets cant compete with. we also produce a line of in-house produced charcuterie, deli meats, and ever changing sausage recipes.
