Meat Western Daughters

When it comes to your dinner plate, Western Daughters does things a bit differently than the average supermarket deli…

Founded in 2013, Western Daughters is a whole-animal butcher shop that offers 100-percent grass-fed beef and lamb and pasture-raised pork and chicken, all sourced within 150 miles of its Denver-base. By working directly with farmers and ranchers, Owner Kate Kavanaugh, an ex-vegetarian of 15 years, says she can provide a window between Colorado farms and your kitchen table.

Having built chicken coops, fed baby lambs and rounded up cattle herself, Kavanaugh says, “I like telling stories to our customers about what we do, our ranchers and the animals that come through here, and learning about them [as well].

“People have forgotten what it’s like to go to a butcher shop. We want to provide an experience where [customers] can learn.”
