The Healthy Butcher

The Healthy Butcher has been one of Toronto’s preeminent butcher shops since 2005, when ex-vegetarians Mario Fiorucci and Tara Longo left their Bay Street careers to follow their passion – good food. “Our goal was simple – to create an establishment that we would be happy to buy meat from because of transparency, a connection with the farms, and a common goal the farmers to raise animals the way nature intended.” The result is healthy meat without compromise. The Healthy Butcher stands apart from the vast majority of butcher shops because it provides the perfect intersection between health and taste. Their focus is on providing only the best quality 100% Grassfed and Certified Organic meat. Today, The Healthy Butcher works directly with over 70 farms, and has strong relationships that allow them to help share information between farmers in regards to what they eat, pasture rotation, and every last detail of the equation. The store offers a full selection of hand-crafted sausages, burgers, artisanal charcuterie, and Ocean Wise approved fresh fish.

    We purchased our first organic turkey from the Healthy Butcher - it was fantastic. The friendly service at your Queen West Store was wonderful - very knowledgeable staff. Have been back for your sausages a few times. All in all a great experience Eve and Georges

    I placed an order for Christmas dinner with family and it was not the traditional turkey. I was called three times to provide detailed information which I neglected to give on the phone when placing the order. I am a vegetarian and not sure of the quantity required. They took the time to ask the questions to determine the cut required and the amount necessary. The Healthy Butcher goes out of its way to ensure that their clients receive what they have requested. Excellent service always! julie

    Whether during the holidays or a middle of the week meal, Healthy Butcher has it covered. The care and attention to detail on every order is amazing. Grass fed beef, fresh oysters, Blackbird bread and other treasures always available and ready to go. Healthy and local at its best, plus delivery too.
