6.20.15 RFRS Picnic x The Local Butcher Shop

Partnering with Oliveto Commons, we feature Monica and Aaron Rocchino of The Local Butcher Shop, a high-quality, sustainable whole animal butchery in Berkeley, CA. Aaron came to the butcher work with 12 years of cooking experience at the Oliveto Restaurant and Chez Panisse Restaurant and Monica brought her business mind to their shop, sourcing pasture-raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats from local farmers and ranchers located within 150 miles of the Berkeley shop and sharing stories about their meat and how to cook beautiful meals from the cuts with the customers.
Listen to this story about their journey towards a food system that offers just, fair and clean meat accessible to all.
