Denman Island vegan butchery – The Very Good Butchers… first of its kind to open in BC
The Very Good Butchers are James and Tania who met working together in a vegetarian restaurant in Vancouver, and moved to Denman Island with their son in early 2016.
They began selling their products at the local Denman Island farmers market in the Spring of 2016 and were sold out within hours. They struggled to meet the growing demand and started to think of ways to expand and bring their products to a wider audience.
Their goal is to make good quality meat alternatives as accessible as possible to everyone, whether people are looking to reduce meat consumption for environmental concerns, are already a vegan or vegetarian, or are just looking for a tasty healthier alternative. Think MEATLESS MONDAYS!
Recently, the Very Good Butchers opened up a stall in the Victoria Hudson Market are open seven days a week; see their website for details. We are pleased to confirm that they live and make their products on Denman Island!
First Victoria… then the world!
