SONOMA COUNTY MEAT CO. is located at 35 Sebastopol Avenue, South of Highway 12, West of Highway 101, East of Dutton Ave. We are so thankful that you have voted for us as the Best Butcher Shop in Sonoma County for 5 years in a row: 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020!
Established in 2014, we are Santa Rosa’s go-to butcher shop. Come to us for jerky, bacon, sausage, beef, pork, lamb, goat, rabbit, chicken; come to us for meat shares, smoking, curing, and both USDA and Custom Exempt Cut & Wrap. That means we are here for farmers, ranchers, hunters, FFA, & 4H members; and the general public is always welcome at our retail shop in the same location.
Our retail hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 6pm. Get yourself some of the best meat the North Bay has to offer, along with some SCMC merchandise, or grab a Gift Certificate for someone special.
We source local meats from sustainable family farms.
Our beef comes from Oak Ridge Angus. They raise premium grass-fed grain-finished beef raised in Knights Valley, just outside Calistoga. Started as a dairy by Massimino LaFranchi in 1912, the family sold their awarding winning Aryshires in 1974 and bought the first generation of the Angus herd they raise now. Pasture raised on the rolling hills of northern California, and finished with only spent beer grain, 100% non-GMO barley from the Bear Republic in Cloverdale; no corn, no antibiotics, no hormones of any kind.
Our lamb is raised by Hamilton Brothers Ranch on native California grasslands in the Montezuma Hills. 4th Generation Family Farmers raise lamb that graze among abundant wildlife protected by livestock guardian dogs. Going back to the 1800s the Hamilton Brothers have worked with the Nature Conservancy to protect the Jepson Prairie. For over 100 years, lambs have been individually selected and bred to produce a sheep that thrives in our Mediterranean California climate. Hamilton Brothers Ranch uses rotational grazing to enhance and benefit the environment, which results in producing the most wholesome, humanely raised lamb for you to enjoy.
Our pork is from Stone Valley Farm. Heritage breed pigs are family farmed and have supplemental feed including walnuts. No hormones, no antibiotics. All humanely raised, less than 100 miles from us in the East Bay around Alamo. Not your average pork, these little piggies have creamy fat that is prized by chefs who know what it means for a pig to be finished on walnuts.
We have dozens of sausages, all made in house with our own recipes! No nitrates nor nitrites ever used in any of our fresh sausages. Not all flavors will be available through the retail counter at all times; call ahead to see what is currently available! You can always place an order for any of the flavors below if you purchase 25 pounds, make sure to give 5 days notice! We can package into 1 pound packages for your convenience.
Sausage makers can come to us for purchasing casings of various sizes, pastured pork fat, and other specialty items. For salumi makers, we are your outlet for starter cultures. We carry Bactoferm for both slow-medium and fast fermentation cycles, as well as Mold 600.
In addition to our butcher shop open to the public, we are both a USDA and state inspected facility. Bring your livestock to us for cut & wrap services. We are proud to offer top notch federally inspected smokehouse and custom sausage making services in Sonoma County. We process under USDA inspection Monday – Friday. We also process wild game during separate times Monday – Saturday. Wild game can be brought in Monday – Friday 3pm – 5pm, or Saturday 9:00am – 5pm.
It is required that you are on our calendar in order to bring animals to us, otherwise, we may have to turn you away, which we don’t want to do.
