Sustainable Meat, Poultry & Fish


We have deep respect for the whole animal, and we source for flavor, succulence and integrity of production. Things we look for when sourcing meat are animals that are pasture-raised, grass-fed, sustainably harvested, and humanely treated. We love to offer heritage breeds, and our meats are free of hormones and antibiotics.

Our fish sourcing decisions are made with constant attention to sustainability. We adhere to Fishwise and Monterey Bay Seafood Watch guidelines to ensure that no fish or seafood we sell has detrimental impact on our oceans’ precious balance.

Our butchers and fishmongers are former chefs from top notch restaurants; like the old days, we  love to help you choose a cut of meat or piece of fish and advise you on how best to prepare it!

Some of the ranches and suppliers we work with:

We ask all of the questions about how our meat is raised before deciding to sell it in our store. We are proud to showcase meats from the following ranchers, and through working with them have grown a reverance for how their animals are raised, treated and processed from start to finish.

Beef: Marin Sun Farms, 5 Dot Ranch, Estancia, BN Ranch

Pork: Gleason Ranch, River Dog, Devil’s Gulch, Heritage Foods USA, Long & Baily Family Farms, Llano Seco

Poultry: BN Ranch, Pitman Family Farms, Victorian Farmstead, Sonoma County Poultry’s Liberty Ducks,

Lamb: Don Watson Napa Valley Lamb, Atkins Ranch

Fish: Monterey Fish Company, Two X Sea, Water 2 Table Fish Co.
