Who We Are

Cultivating Relationships and Building a Family of Partners


We are committed to sourcing and providing the highest quality, well-cared-for protein available to chefs, butchers, and retailers. As the food system undergoes rapid change, we remain steadfast in our mission.

At Preservation Meat Collective, we are proud to partner with heritage, heirloom, and sustainable growers. We believe in our products and will only offer them if we have visited the producer and its operation, ensuring that we earn your trust.

Our team consists of food lovers, cooks, and industry veterans who know that offering the best products is not enough without exceptional service. We have spent years cultivating relationships and building a family of partners, and we are honored to include you in our community.

We take our commitment to our partners seriously and extend our family philosophy to every member of our team. We will live and breathe our words, treating everyone with respect and dedication.

Thank you for choosing Preservation Meat Collective as your partner.
