About Our Veal

Our special veal comes from a cooperative of small-scale veal farms in Southwest France, where Charolais and Limousin breeds of cattle, known for meat, not dairy, are specifically raised for the fine meat they produce. The veal calves are given mother’s milk for two weeks and then weaned onto a milk formula diet.
