Who is Sutter Meats?

SUTTER MEATS IS A HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM DEDICATED TO PRESERVING THE CRAFT OF TRADITIONAL BUTCHERY AND TO NARROWING THE GAP BETWEEN THE EATER & THEIR FOOD SOURCE.

"We work directly with family farms to provide locally and sustainably-raised meat to the Pioneer Valley. To honor the effort and care our farmers put into raising their livestock, we are committed to using the whole animal by serving not only fresh cuts of meat, but also an assortment of sausages, charcuterie, deli meats, smoked meats and stocks; all made in house. We are dedicated to providing residents of our community with an opportunity to savor the bounty of humanely-raised meat from neighboring farms. We believe that a happy and healthy animal raised in its natural environment makes for better tasting, fuller-flavored meat."

What they do and sell.

Sutter Meats’ mission is to bring back the neighborhood butcher with an emphasis on whole animal butchery, education, and the creation of community. They use the term “nose-to-tail” as a reference to the unique way that they source and use their products that differentiates their business model.

Sutter Meats also makes amazing sandwiches daily, fresh to order. You can see for yourself why supplies never last!

Their lunch time sandwiches pairs perfectly with a Quivr nitro coffee or tea! In addition to fresh meat offerings they have a grab and go section of everything you need for cooking, entertaining and seasoning.

Why we like them

They only buy whole animals from local farms who share their standards and practices and to respect the life sacrificed for our food, they strive to use the entire animal. This means that in addition to offering a much wider variety of familiar steaks, roasts and custom cuts than their competitors, they also offer many unique cuts in the tradition of the European butcheries, and use the remaining meat, bones and fat to make stocks, dog food, cooking lard, etc. Buying whole animals also ensures that they know exactly where our products come from, how they were raised and how they were slaughtered; ensuring complete traceability and quality.
