The Local Butcher Shop is a premiere Bay Area butcher shop selling high quality, sustainable meat and poultry. We practice whole animal butchery, buying animals directly from local farmers and ranchers located within 150 miles of our Berkeley shop. Our product is always pasture raised and antibiotic and hormone-free, and we can custom cut any cut for you while you wait. We aim to positively impact eaters, farmers, ranchers, food artisans, and fellow butchers through our community-based business by sourcing and cutting the finest meat available in the Bay Area and by teaching our customers how to source and cook meat.
Receiving funding up front will help us to keep our staff on board during our slower months and will allow us to do more farm tours with our staff.
