Happy Thanksgiving

The Whole Ox

Probably the best butcher shop in Northern Virginia

We will be closed Thanksgiving Day & Black Friday.

The Whole Ox is an old fashioned, full service butcher shop specializing in whole, local foods from your neighbors’ farms.

Our meats are raised ethically on pasture without the addition of hormones and antibiotics.

This service provides healthy options for our community and supports our local rural economy.

When I first began
To cut up oxen,
I would see before me
All in one mass.
After three years,
I no longer saw this mass.
I saw the distinctions.
— Chuang Tzu
