our food is an extension of our passion for whole animal cooking and butchery. we buy pasture raised cows, pigs, and lamb direct and have them delivered whole to our kitchen door. we source the best beef from ranchers who raise their animals humanely and sustainably with great care and integrity. no factories. no antibiotics. no hormones. no bull.

we butcher in-house, portioning our own steaks and chops. we cook over a wood-fired grill. we grind our own fresh burgers and make our own sausages. we age our own steaks and cure our own meats. we source our seafood and poultry locally, and the majority of our produce comes straight from the farmers' markets.
