Sonoma County Meat Company opens

Friday, June 6th, 2014

socomeatcoWith all the recent bad news about local meat processing, its heartening to know that a new generation of local butchers and processors are coming up the ranks. Sonoma County Meat Co., which opened in late May, 2014 (35 Sebastopol Ave., Santa Rosa) is a small USDA and state-­approved processor, butcher shop and meat CSA run by meat and culinary rock stars Rian Rinn and Jenine Alexander.

Unlike most commercial butcher shops, the couple can take in beef, chicken, rabbit, goat, lamb, pork and game for processing as well as cut-­and-­wrap (breaking down USDA-­approved animals slaughtered at places like Marin Sun Farms) and package it for sale at their store or for farmer’s markets and commercial sales.

Suffice to say, it’s a pretty big deal. They will also offer a meat CSA.
