Our meats, seafood, and cheeses are sourced from small operations who have strong family values.



At The Son of a Butcher, we like to work with smaller producers. Smaller operations allow more access into the inner workings of the operation, like knowing the cattle buyer or the guy who owns the boats. It allows you to have a relationship with the people who make the operation tick, not just talking with a salesman. The smaller operations are typically family oriented and work with and have long ties with other family farms. This family value has a direct impact on animal conditions, how much room they have to live, how clean their water is, and the ingredients that go into their feed mix. They prioritize attention to detail and overall care for the process. Often times, farmers and fisherman are really interested in feedback from the end user, the chef or store owner. They have a genuine concern for how the product performs, it’s a reflection on their work.

The fresh seafood business is all about trust, so meeting fishermen face to face is important to us. A solid relationship with the fisherman gives a good inside look at their process, where they fish,

how long the boats are on the water, and how they store the fish while on the boat. We work hard to have really fresh fish that is sourced from the Gulf of Mexico and Southern Atlantic. The Gulf is a nice asset because it’s really close and has so much to offer — fish, oysters, clams, shrimp, and crab. We have trucks coming and going to the gulf multiple times a week. Our goal is to keep it really fresh and the variety interesting.
