Our Butcher Shop

Over the years, we have slowly acquired all the equipment for our shop.  Each piece is a salvaged artifact, from our 100 year-old butcher block to the 60 year old wood/propane stove to the 50 year-old trolley system redeemed from a local shop closing its doors.

Acquiring our tools this way has done more than merely keep our costs down.  Nothing helps you know exactly what you need like working without it for a few years.  Like our approach to livestock harvesting, we have created zero percent waste.  So in the spirit of regenerative agriculture, we offer you the butcher shop that craigslist built.
