From farm to plate, we don’t cut corners when it comes to your food.

At Kloster’s Butcher Shop, we care about what we serve you.

At Kloster’s, we believe you should feel good about what you eat. We only work with small local farms that share our passion for all-natural meats free from antibiotics and hormones. This has been our recipe for success for nearly three decades.

Michael Kloster founded Kloster’s Butcher Shop in 1992. Michael first opened Kloster’s in Newmarket with the goal of connecting home cooks and foodies to high quality meats they could trust. Knowing the complexities of the modern meat industry, Michael saw consumers’ growing need and desire to understand where their food comes from and how it is produced. This inspired him to take care to only partner with local farms with transparent business practices and the highest quality product.

Today, Kloster’s Butcher Shop serves York Region and beyond from its Newmarket and Aurora locations…


We proudly carry AAA and AA all-natural aged beef, grain-fed, air-chilled chicken, seasonal turkeys, pork, lamb, duck, bison, and more.
