Bob is a busy guy. As the resident el Salchichero patriarch—you’ve probably seen him slinging tasty meats at the farmers markets in Santa Cruz, Live Oak or Scotts Valley. If you talk to Bob, ask him about his favorite cut, the Maple Mustard Pork Chops—we promise you that your appetite won’t regret it.


His passion for delicious cuts started all the way back when he was a young teen sweeping floors at an old school butcher shop in Los Gatos. Like much of the crew, he became transfixed with the way an animal is broken down. That feeling of magic and precision stayed with him for a long time. After retiring from a career in the high tech workforce, he knew it was only a matter of time before he was working close to home again. When Chris told him he was opening a butcher’s shop, he jumped in with both feet providing the infrastructure and establishing the farmers market relationships. When he’s not at the markets, he’s working with wood, breaking it down with the skill of a seasoned butcher. Finally, at the end of the day, when all the meat has been sold and all the furniture has been built, Bob has over 100 chickens to tend to—he’s also the chief egg washer. On his days off, you can him find him fishing or exploring our local redwoods. Hey, we told you he was a busy guy.
