Business Overview

Our Story

We are dedicated to seasonal, locally-sourced, sustainably-raised, fresh meat. Our shop began as an idea in 2009 when we decided we wanted to continue to work in the food industry. However, we wanted to have a more “normal” work schedule that would also allow us to have a more direct impact on our community. At the same time, it was difficult for us to find locally sourced, sustainably raised meat that we felt comfortable cooking at home. We figured if we were having that problem, everyone else was too! We opened our doors in August of 2011 in the Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood of Berkeley, CA.Our butchers are also trained chefs, ready to help you with cooking suggestions, recipes, and a personal connection to the farms where the animals are raised. Because we only buy whole animals, we can butcher any imaginable cut for you on the spot, and we pride ourselves in customization. We also offer rendered fats, bones and innards. We make all of our pâtés, sausages, deli meats, stocks, stews and dog food in house, and our sandwich of the day features our meat, local farmer’s market produce and locally made bread.
