A special treat indeed!
Di Liso’s Fine Meats choice breed of beef are the Limousin, Charolais, and Blonde D’Aquitaine. We always use locally-raised cattle sourced from several local family-run farms which John visits weekly to ensure all his requirements are adhered to. Our beef is air chilled and dry aged a minimum of 28 days. We follow the old fashioned farming and butchering methods and all beef is processed on the premises on a daily basis.
Di Liso’s Fine Meats choice breed is a Nicholas Hen. All turkeys are raised at Beliak Heritage Farms in St. Ann's, Ontario. The Beliak brothers follow old fashioned farming practices, and all turkeys are naturally-raised with grains, wheat shorts and crushed soy grains. They are free-running and natural birds. Our turkeys are delivered fresh weekly by Murray Beliak himself, which is great for customers who want to meet him or directly ask questions.
Di Liso’s Fine Meats choice breed is a Ross chicken. Our Mennonite farmed, naturally-raised chickens are always free-running and free-feeding. This promotes good healthy and lean poultry. Our strict feeding program of grains, barley, wheat shorts and distillers grain enhances the flavour tremendously. Once our chickens are processed at Ontario’s first and only AA poultry plant, they are hung to dry overnight (air chilled) to avoid any unnecessary use of cleaning chemicals or water retention.
Di Liso’s Fine Meats choice breed of pork is a young pure bred Yorkshire hog. Locally raised, perfectly marble and well trimmed with tons of flavour. In the past several years, pork in general has become a much healthier and leaner alternative to other meats, as better quality feeds and farming practices have helped improve our little pink friend's filthy reputation.
Di Liso’s fine meats choice breed of lamb are the Textel, Dorset or Suffolk... preferably purebred. Always raised locally in Ontario on several small family farms which John visits regularly. Lambs are always naturally-raised animals and are never given antibiotics or hormones. All Lambs are milk fed for perfect and consistent marbling and are very light and mild in flavour.
