Consumer website orders are shipped in insulated boxes by overnight courier. D’Artagnan was founded in 1985 by Ariane Daguin and George Faison. Their partnership was formed while working together at a charcuterie shop in New York City. There they met a farmer with the first domestically-raised foie gras in the United States. He was looking for distribution for his product, which the charcuterie shop declined. Daguin and Faison founded D’Artagnan to distribute it themselves. D’Artagnan originally sold whole lobes of raw foie gras to the chefs of New York City. At the time the only foie gras available to restaurants was canned product imported from Europe. D’Artagnan’s product line quickly expanded to include game meats and heritage breed poultry, organic chicken, heritage turkey, grass-fed beef, humanely-raised veal and pork, pheasant, quail, squab and prepared products like pâté, dry-cured sausages, smoked duck breast and duck prosciutto. D’Artagnan was an early proponent of humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone-free organic meat. D’Artagnan sources from small farmers and creates cooperatives of farms where possible, to ensure that animals are raised in humane conditions. They procure meats from small family farms that are committed to humane, sustainable free-range, antibiotic and hormone free methods of animal husbandry. D’Artagnan contracts with 35 co-ops nationwide, representing about 1,500 farmers as of 2009. D’Artagnan’s line of products became more available to the consumer public when it began selling items to major grocery stores Balducci’s and the Food Emporium in 1996.”There is no reason you should be brutal to animals when you don’t have to,” Daguin was reported saying, “This is the first time ever I saw pigs being killed and not shrieking, because they didn’t realize it.
