Halal Meat

There’s quite a lot of halal meat offered in North America and Europe, but unfortunately halal encompasses a wide variety of practices and doesn’t reflect how the animals were raised. The businesses and farms listed in this directory offer halal meats from animals raised humanely and often organically. Each business may have a different philosophy, different certifications, and different practices. We hope to visit as many as possible so we can speak with the farmers themselves, interact with the animals, and ideally observe slaughter practices. Just because they’re on the list doesn’t mean that we endorse them (unless otherwise noted), and we recommend that you contact and visit the farms for yourself. Let us know if we’re missing anything and what your experiences have been!

Kosher Meat

In the Qur’an (5:5), we’re reminded that the food of people of scripture is permissible for us to eat, which is great as sometimes we either can’t find what we’re looking for from a halal meat provider (like a turkey for Thanksgiving), or we want to purchase meats locally. Jewish law maintains extremely high standards for kosher slaughter, and when combined with individuals whose philosophies on raising their animals match our own, some great businesses result.
