Frequently Asked Questions
Q: IS YOUR MEAT EVER FROZEN?
A: All of the meat we buy, with the exception of certain exotic items shipped from all over the world, are delivered fresh in our stores up to six days per week.
Q: WHERE DOES YOUR MEAT COME FROM?
A: We source some of our beef, veal, pork, lamb, and poultry from local farms right around the corner! However, due to the demand for meat versus local supply chains, we look elsewhere for much of our meat. We source only all-natural products raised in a humane manner from farms that will deliver consistently high-quality, tasty meats.
Q: IS YOUR MEAT GRASS FED?
A: While pork and poultry are not “grazing” animals, all of our beef is raised for most of its life on grass in pastures.
Q: IS YOUR MEAT ORGANIC?
A: The meats we carry are not certified organic. However, we do carry meats that are “organically raised.” We strive to provide a wholesome, natural product, free of antibiotics and artificial hormones, while avoiding the hefty price tag associated with USDA Organic meat.
Q: IS YOUR BEEF ANGUS CATTLE?
A: Angus, a popular breed of cattle, is the majority of the cattle we sell. While some retailers focus on branding specific breeds of cattle, at PRIMAL we lean toward maintaining a standard of excellence for our product. Some of the breeds of cattle we sell are Angus, Hereford, Holstein, and Wagyu. Regardless of breed, we only buy and sell premium USDA Choice grade and USDA Prime grade beef.
Q: WHY IS YOUR MEAT SO GOOD?
A: The quality process starts with selection of only products, brands, and vendors with reputation for delivering excellence. With a hand-picked, fresh, all natural product coming in for our butchers to work with, they then are trained to cut, process, and prepare the product correctly to maximize flavor and tenderness. As we only carry premium lines of product and nothing is frozen, the end result is a tasty product that showcases its natural flavors.
Q: HOW DO I SPECIAL ORDER? WHAT’S AVAILABLE?
A. There are many cuts of meat – and varieties of meat available to consumers. Maybe you have a recipe you want to try, or there is a specialty/exotic meat that seems intriguing – like kangaroo, turtle, rattlesnake, alligator, or elk. Whatever the case, give us a call or stop by to speak with one of our butchers to check on availability of products. If we do not have the product in stock, we can special order most products up to six days per week in some cases. Depending on the nature of the special orders, we may require a deposit.
Q: CAN I BUY YOUR MARINADES?
A: Our proprietary marinades are not for sale at this time.
Q: DO YOU WHOLESALE?
A: We do not wholesale our products at this time. However, if you have a large party or are planning a big purchase, we do work on an individual basis to provide volume discounts. Additionally, we have a “MEAT PACK” menu with some of our favorite items bundled together in larger packages at a discount. See the store manager for more information.
