FAQs

Where do you source your meat?

We have a few different Northern California ranches we work with, amongst them Devil's Gulch Ranch in Nicasio, Langley Farms in Petaluma, and Llano Seco in Chico.

The vast majority of our meat comes from these three sources. When working with small family farms raising humanely raised pastured animals, availability of specific cuts can sometimes be inconsistent. Occasionally we have to source from heritage breed farmers further afield, but always with the same high standards and top quality meat.

Rancho Llano Seco (Chico, CA)

Our pigs are a cross of Duroc, Yorkshire and Landrace breeds. Our hogs are fed GMO-free vegetarian grains and legumes, 90% of which are grown on our dry-land fields within a few miles of the barns. Pigs are confinement-free, raised in deep-bedded hoop barns with continual access to large open air pastures with plenty of sunshine and a great view of the California Buttes. The pigs are a “zero-waste” community, as all bedding is composted and applied to Rancho pastures. Our animals are humanely treated with best practices as certified by Global Animal Partnership. We direct every aspect of our product supply chain from animal birth through slaughter and butchery. Our meat has no antibiotics or growth hormones. Llano Seco is the culmination of our mission to provide a variety of products while caring for the people, the animals and the land. We pride ourselves in our holistic approach to ranching.

DG Langley (Nicasio & Petaluma, CA)

DG-Langley Farms is the combination of 2 legendary (at least in our own minds) pig farmers, Mark Pasternak of Devil's Gulch Ranch and Pete Langley of Langley Farms. Through our combined efforts, sustainable, humane agricultural practices are utilized (organic whenever possible) providing the highest quality pasture raised pork. Sows are Yorkshires crossed with either a Duroc or Berkshire boar. The sows are pastured along with their piglets until weaned. The weaned pigs are then finished with whole milk, whole grain breads, brewers grain, and tortillas, living their whole lives on pasture.

 

Do you ship?

Yes, we offer nationwide 2-3 day shipping.

In an effort to avoid unplanned weekend layovers in shipping warehouses, we ship orders Mon-Wed each week by USPS 2-3 delivery. Orders received after 5PM Tuesday will ship the following week. 

We ship our bacon frozen, wrapped in insulation along with additional frozen ice packs. If your package arrives thawed, do not be alarmed! This is normal, and you can rest assured it spent most of the trip very cold. 
More importantly, bacon is a cured, smoked and fully cooked product. It therefore is not raw meat, and does not need to remain frozen throughout transit the way other meats do. We recommend refrigerating your bacon upon arrival, or it can be refrozen without any damage to the quality.
