Our Mission

Heritage Foods was founded in 2001 to sell ancient breeds of livestock that were becoming extinct, largely because industrial agriculture willfully pushed healthy, heritage breeds aside for more profitable, faster-growing animals. Rare heritage breeds are saved when popular demand increases and farmers have the incentive to raise them. In other words, we must eat these breeds to save them! Our farmers raise animals humanely, outdoors, on pasture, and never with antibiotics or growth hormones. This creates the most delicious, supremely marbled, juiciest meat in the world that we deliver right to your door. 

Shop our Various Collections: Heritage meats are raised humanely on the pastures of family owned farms without antibiotics

Our network of over fifty family farms is the very foundation of what we do. Thanks to our great Heritage customers —  including home chefs and some of America’s best restaurants —  we have been able to sustain an independent farm economy based on raising the world’s healthiest animals under the best conditions.

Words straight from our customers and chefs

Our daughter and her fiance arrived today and we had those most excellent Berkshire pork ribs for dinner..Holy smokes...thanks so much"

Deb from North Carolina

Still recovering from Sunday’s pork hangover! The porchetta was a hit...sooo so good."

Pia from New York

Frank Reese's Aylesbury ducks were amazing. They were sweet and tender when cooked to medium rare, but they ate like a dry aged piece of meat. You could tell they were special... I've cooked millions of ducks and these are the best I've ever had. Really exceptional. 

Antonio, Quality Meats

You guys are the best. My mom is on a strict instructions to put the charcuterie under lock and key until I arrive on Christmas Eve to keep Dad from eating it all before I get there."

Steven from Michigan

The turkeys we had from you for Thanksgiving were the best we have ever found and we have been slow smoking birds for over 40 years."

Joe from CA

The best ham I have ever eaten in all my 63 years! Beautiful flavor, not too sweet, with a perfect balance of lean to fat. The texture of the meat is firm and absolutely perfect, and the fat is silky and delicious. It is the ham every other ham wishes it could be... the ham of dreams!"

Denise from Wisconsin

My customers were saying it was the best pulled pork they’ve ever had and I’ve done pulled pork many times over the years. I think it was those magic shoulders you sent me last week. Thanks!

Danny, Southside/Lot 2

THE BEST HAM EVER! No glaze. Mustards. You all are the best!"

Ellen from Tennessee

The steaks were divine! We are trying the burgers tonight.

Carnivores rule.
