100% SARDINIAN MEATS
Here at San Quirico, we take the selling of meat very seriously indeed. We take great care at every stage, from the rearing of the livestock, all the way to the sale of the meat to the customer. We go to great lengths to ensure that the animals live healthy lives in the open air, eating on grass and cereals, consuming no chemical additives at any point.
In the main, we deal with Sardinian heifer beef and Sardinian pork, sourced strictly from NON-factory-farming operations. This explains why our meats are the very best that money can buy!
Our young heifer, in particular, has a unique, exquisite flavour and is extraordinarily tender. In contrast to veal, heifers are exclusively female; they are aged between 12 and 22 months, and have not borne any calves. Their refined meat can be identified by small infiltrations of fat in the muscle tissue, which melt during cooking, making the cut all the more tender and flavoursome.
The cows are born and raised in Sardinia on the Ozieri plain, where they are free to graze in a healthy, monitored and highly respectful environment. After their first 7-8 months, they are weaned and then follow a diet of cereals and forage, which has been planned by a nutritionalist. The quality of our beef is guaranteed all along the chain, right to the moment of sale. It is 100% traceable, 100% natural and, last but not least, 100% Sardinian.
The same applies to our pork: all of the pigs are raised free-range in Sardinia, with no factory farming whatsoever. Our pigs are given natural nourishment, with no chemical additives.
As we say here at San Quirico. “Eat well, eat healthily, but above all, eat Sardinian!”
EAT WELL, EAT HEALTHILY, BUT ABOVE ALL, EAT SARDINIAN!
Try our unbeatable heifer beef, also available in a version aged for 30 days! After slaughter, the sides of beef are placed in specially designed cells for maturation – a very delicate natural, chemical and physical process that makes the meat all the more tender, flavoursome and easy to digest. And while you’re at it, give our delicious, healthy Sardinian pork a try. Because here at San Quirico we only offer the finest-quality meats!
