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. While our business has expanded over the years, some things have not changed. Kloster’s priority remains exceeding our customers’ needs. We continue to work directly with carefully selected Ontario farms that raise its animals humanely and forego the use of hormones and antibiotics. Our friendly and knowledgeable team members are always available to answer your questions, make recommendations, and cut your order the way you like.
Simply put, we are happy to serve you.
Our commitment to excellence in service and product is evident in our customers’ loyalty. We still see familiar faces from when we first opened our doors. We even see the children of our day-one regulars! We are immensely grateful for their support and the support of the newcomers we welcome who are in search of all-natural meat that meets their dietary concerns and ethical standards.
