DeBragga, New York's Butcher, is continually searching for the finest sources of quality meat products. This commitment to excellence enabled DeBragga and Spitler to become the sole New York City-based distributor for "Certified Angus Beef" in 1982, which was one of the original branded heritage breed programs under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture. This tradition continues with Wagyu/ Kobe beef from Japan, Australia and the United States, naturally Raised Meats from Iowa and the Midwest, North Carolina heritage breed poultry, and real Long Island ducks.

What is the best beef?
There is a lot of debate over what is the best beef. What breed is the best? How should it be raised? Should it be grain finished or grass fed? Are hormones or antibiotics used? Is Dry Aged better than Wet aged? Does a steak cook better on the bone? Which cut is the most tender or the most flavorful? There is no wrong answer. Some people will opt for the naturally raised but less marbled. Some will prefer a less expensive selection that is dry aged. Some want the most highly marbled piece of beef imaginable. The fact is whatever you like is the right choice and that is what we strive to offer at the http://www.DeBragga.com Web store.
