With 85% lean meat in the grind, this beautiful pale pink veal works well in dishes with light flavors. Think white bean chili, or pasta with herbs and white wine sauce.
Use veal in place of beef when you want more delicate and elegant results. Or mix it with beef for a meatloaf or meatballs with a lighter flavor.
Veal burgers or patties make a lovely departure from the norm. Try a classic ragu Bolognese or use veal in croquettes, ravioli, or your favorite pasta dish.
And this is a new era for veal, so you can enjoy it guilt-free.

Like everything else at D’Artagnan, our veal is raised humanely to produce the best flavor. We work with a cooperative of small farms in upstate New York and Canada that raise Holstein calves on milk formula alone. The calves are never individually caged or penned.
Instead, they are raised in group housing, in open spaces with clean straw bedding, free to socialize with other calves in a sunlit, comfortable environment.These unique veal barns have been lauded by Dr. Temple Grandin, an expert on humane animal husbandry. The barns are temperature controlled, with ample air circulation and plenty of space for free movement; the calves have access to the outdoors when weather permits. The farmers strive to minimize stress on the calves, and limit the number of calves per barn.
The feed consists only of a high-quality milk protein product and pure well water, to which the calves are allowed 24-hour access, via a highly technical nipple feeding system. They are never administered any GMO products, antibiotics or growth hormones. Our veal farmers achieve a careful balance between tradition and technology, weighing the calves to determine their nutritional needs and monitoring them carefully to ensure their health and well-being.
