About the Butcher

“Bring local meat back to local tables.” That was the idea Ben Meyer and Jimmy Serlin rallied around when they decided to found Revel Meat Co., their own homegrown sustainable butchery.

As observed by Ben, a problem for many small ranchers is that they don’t have access to USDA-approved slaughterhouses due to the priority given to larger ranches. Revel was formed to directly address this issue by providing local Northwest producers with access to one of the last remaining USDA-inspected slaughterhouses in Oregon. Its mission to contribute to a more sustainable food system acutely intersects with our own mission to provide locally sourced staples to our farm-fresh subscribers.

And, just like us, the butchers at Revel have relationships with farmers that run deep. They aim to source truly local meat — not meat that’s shipped in and labeled “local” just because it’s been processed locally (a creative marketing tactic used by some). By focusing on smaller farms and ranches, the Revel team is able to provide meat that’s truly traceable to its source. At the end of the day, this sustainable butchery is built on strong relationships with its familial network of ranchers, chefs, restaurants, and customers who’ve rallied around the cause.

Revel Meat Co. offers USDA-inspected slaughter and custom cutting and packaging for pork, beef, and lamb. Their half-a-century-old slaughterhouse facility is Certified Organic, Oregon Tilth-Certified, and 3rd party audited for safety and quality.

We’re proud to count Revel as one of our most trusted allies in our mission to radicalize the food distribution system. Knowing where our meat comes from, and the producers behind it all — is part of the solution we’re working towards every day. Subscribe to our Butcher’s Choice Selection in Seattle and Portland to experience some of the meat these butchers have worked tirelessly to source, process, and pack for our local communities.
