Organic. It’s the way our grandparents ate (before factory farming became the norm) and the way more and more people are choosing to eat today. When it comes to meat, organic means is free of harmful pesticides, antibiotics or growth hormones, produced humanely and in harmony with our planet, packed with nutrients and full of flavor. It might cost a little more, but those who eat it—more than 45 percent of Americans choose organic, according to a recent Gallup Poll—believe it’s well worth it.

Just because you love, love meat as much as we do, doesn’t mean you can’t be crazy about fish, too. Whether you crave a hearty or light meal, there’s a fish for that. We’ve got some sustainable seafood recommendations that will reel in even the most committed carnivores.
Before we get to the good stuff, a few words about sustainability.
It has been a seafood buzzword for sometime now, but what does it really mean? A lot of different things to different people, it seems.
At Rastelli, sustainable means top-quality seafood raised right so it tastes good, is good for you and ensures we’ll all have enough of it for generations to come. Like our Faroe Island Salmon, which is raised by eco-friendly fisheries in pens with free flowing water in its natural environment and fed an all-natural diet. And, all of our sustainable seafood has the distinction of being Best Aquacultural Practices (BAP) certified. All of which makes us—and hopefully you!—feel confident about eating more seafood.
