Located in Selaya is Cárnicos y Lácteos Las Nieves, a business offering high quality, ecological beef.
The butchers shop has their own farm in the local town of Pisueña. Their cows are born and raised there, in the pastures with their mothers until the 8th or 9th month and then fed with ecologic feed, grass and hay until they are 11-12 months old. The animals then taken to the butcher by the farmer and are then sold in the family butchers shop. They also buy animals from a few farms in the area that work to the same standard.
The butchers shop and the providing farms follow the requirement of Ecological Agroculture and benefit from the CRAE certification, ensuring consumers that their animals have been fed with ecologic feed, free of pesticides and not genetically modified and that they have not been through any hormones or antibiotics treatment.
Control: DNA is frequently tested in the slaughter house, and checked against new tests in the butcher shop, to ensure ecologic quality of the meat. Also controlled are the processes and cattle alimentation. To preserve quality at the selling point, this meat is sealed according to ecological production regulations.
