Whether you’re a non-meat-eater or just want to make your Mondays a little more meatless, we just added to our lineup of local vegan Herbivorous Butcher items. Check it out!

Deli slices, new ribs, new cheeses, Herbivorous Bacon!

“Our bacon makes breakfast a snap, and great BLTs for dinner – or use them cooked and crumbled over salads. Yum!” – New Pi’s Kim P.

Founded by a sister-brother duo in Minneapolis, this vegan “butcher shop” has gained incredible popularity (featured everywhere from the New York Times to The Guardian to The Splendid Table), and now they’re at your local Co-op!

We’re the only place in Iowa you’ll find them.

Even a modest reduction in meat and cheese consumption greatly reduces your impact on the environment.

With recipes developed and honed over years, they’re confident that one taste and you’ll be hooked.

Deliciously deceiving meat-free meats:

Small Batch - Locally sourced - All-Natural - High Protein
