Meet The Baconer—The Craft Producer Leading Innovation Beyond The Bacon Aisle

Situated in the epicenter of farm-to-table cuisine, our goal is to create new ways to enjoy America's favorite food—bacon—for today’s generation of home cooks, chefs, and photo-snapping foodies. We’ve perfected a collection of artisan bacon that offers something genuinely unique and inspires our customers to cook absurdly-delicious meals. Our team of bacon enthusiasts prioritizes exceptional quality, sourcing responsibly-raised premium heritage pork from small family farms to produce our richly-flavored bacon featuring innovative cuts and chef-driven flavors. With specialty items like XXL Bacon Steaks, Smoked Lardons, Ground Bacon and BBQ Bacon Ends—in addition to traditional Small Batch Bacon Strips—we put you in control of your own culinary adventure. The Baconer donates a percentage of proceeds to organizations supporting universal access to high-quality, nourishing, and responsibly-sourced food. Based in Emeryville, California, our hand-crafted products are available online and at select retail locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Founding Story

The Original Bacon Slingers, Camilo Velasquez and Elisa Lewis, were a part of an underground supper Club in Brooklyn, NY feeding neighborhood folks 5-7 course meals, complete with a wine pairing in their chic shared industrial loft apartment. It was here that The Baconer(s) started learning to cure their own meats. By invitation, groups of 10-20 would clamor to join these monthly gatherings.

The husband and wife team moved to California and The Baconer got its West Coast start producing in a local commissary in Oakland, CA, selling on weekends at Bay Area farmers markets. Fast forward a few years and today The Baconer's indulgently thick cut bacons are expertly smoked and cut in Sonoma, CA with the same attention to detail and quality that set them apart from the start.

Now headquartered in Emeryville, CA, The Baconer is an artisan producer exclusively focused on one incredible product: bacon. Forging a unique style characterized by responsible sourcing, chef-driven flavors, and hard to find cuts, The Baconer’s mission is to help people discover America’s favorite food—bacon.
