Locally-sourced, full-service butcher shop in New Orleans, specializing in fresh meat, sausages, and specialty prepared food items. Cleaver & Co. serves as a full service meat market, offering customers high quality products and custom cuts of meat with excellent, personal service. Products are sourced from local and sustainable farms and businesses within Louisiana and Mississippi whenever possible. The store also incorporates local foodways and traditions, such as hot boudin, fresh cracklin, and stuffed chickens.
Cleaver & Co. establishes personal relationships with farmers within 200 miles of New Orleans. We are able to educate our customers on ways to utilize various cuts of meat and encourage creativity in the kitchen. Cleaver & Co. visits each farm, getting to know the farmers and their practices. By ensuring the animals are raised in an ethical and sustainable manner, we are able to bring you a quality product.
Animal breed, welfare, and processing are all very important factors in producing a great steak, but the delicate balance of aging, cut, and selection are just as critical in creating the best possible flavor profile. Essentially, by hand selecting the front-end and then providing the attention to detail that we do on the back-end, we are able to provide some of the best, consistent cuts of meat around. That being said, we are constantly scouring the country (and the globe for that matter) to find those ranches which meet our stringent standards in order to ensure an exceptional steak for you.
