Dave's Meat ServiceModesto , CA
In the spring of 1998, Dave's Meat Service began as a butcher shop for local farmers, ranchers, and hunters to bring their home-raised livestock and wild game to be processed. In recent years, with a higher demand for locally sourced meats they saw a need to begin their own retail business, as well as continue the cut and wrap services. In 2011, they became a licensed retail establishment with the California Department of Food & Agriculture.
Since then they have expanded into making their own sausages, bacons, beef jerky and pepper sticks, but it hasn't stopped there. They source locally raised grass-fed beef, naturally raised pork and lamb products, free-range chickens and turkeys, and even fresh seafood. With their own on-site smokehouse, they sell pre-cooked favorites such as smoked ribs, brisket, hams, turkeys and so much more!
