We Use Only The Best Pasture Raised Meat

At el Salchichero we use only pasture-raised animals from a very select group of local farms. Our ranchers believe in sustainable agriculture and treat their animals with the utmost respect. With our partnership, we provide you with the best meat products from locally sourced, and humanely raised animals. Our butcher shop-farm relationship is very close and we visit each farm to observe how the animals are raised, what they eat and how they are treated.

As responsible meat eaters, it is important to maintain a connection to the meat we enjoy, the farms where they are raised and people who care for them. Our philosophy is that the animals give their lives for us; in turn, we are respectful and never wasteful. From farm to table and through each season we hope to collectively share our responsible meat-eating practices and animal products with you.

Local Farms

SunFed Ranch

SunFed Ranch


Matt Byrne and Chris Donati are the driving force behind SunFed Ranch, representing the youngest generation of families that each trace their roots in California ranching back more than 100 years. We partner with other SunFed Ranch family ranchers to grow the highest quality grass fed beef possible in a way that sustains the land, the cattle and our families’ ranching businesses for the long term.

SunFed Ranch and our cattle are part of nature’s cycle. As environmental stewards, we are committed to caring for our open spaces, watersheds, native plants and wildlife—today and for future generations. For many years, SunFed Ranch families have been nourished by the sun to grow beef in balance with the land, the plants and the wild life that make our grasslands their home.
