The Swinery

West Seattle’s first and only sustainable butcher and meat shop.

The Swinery is Seattle’s first and only sustainable butcher and meat shop.

When we say sustainable we are talking about our commitment to buying animals from within 300 miles of our shop, buying whole animals instead of boxed meat, buying from small farmers instead of large agribusiness enterprises, and both paying and charging a fair, real price for our products. We are committed to using organic products wherever we can, and products raised and made with organic practices where certified organic is not possible.

The Swinery carries properly aged, hung, and prepared meats to delight your taste buds. We’re using “old school” practices such as buying only whole animals and using the whole thing. We want to bring back the flavor that’s been lost with mass-produced factory meats. Old-world influences and modern practices combine in our shop to produce incredible meats and sausages with amazing flavors.
We are dedicated to the revival of responsibility and awareness in meat consumption and to enthusiastic appreciation for flavor and quality. We’re into sustainability because it’s not only right but it makes meat taste good, too. We’re doing this because we love it.
Come in and enjoy our steaks and chops, dried and smoked meats, house-made sausages and bacon, world-renowned cheeses, and much more. Visit our web site to learn more about our current selection of products

At the Swinery we are celebrating the Labor Day weekend with a couple of our special sandwiches. "El Presidente" and the "House deli sandwich".

[08/14/17]   Kim here. Tonight, I wanted something yummy, but had no energy, and I have no grill. So, I took out a hanger steak to remove the chill, turned the oven to broil, foiled a tray, seasoned and oiled the steak, in it went. 10 minutes. Turned off the oven, but left it in the oven for another 10 minutes, wrapped it in foil on separate a plate, let it rest 10 minutes. Perfect. Serve. Easy

From one our of customers who brought this to us. Apparently it was posted in the Chicago Tribune.

Thank you Razi and Brando for your beautiful artwork. You've made the wall

When the kid speaks we listen!

The West Seattle parade has started. Come in over.

We fought for the right to eat what we want, that said, come to the Courtyard Grill at the Swinery and enjoy the Cheesy Philly Steak Sandwich.

Hello Swinery world! This coming 4th. of July weekend is a long one. So the Swinery has decided to do a small production of whole smoked turkeys. Call Kim and reserve one. 206-932-4211

[06/25/17]   Going to a picnic or a family gathering for July 4th and trying to feed a crowd? We will have fully smoked turkeys for grabs. Perfect for sandwiches, or reheated on your grill. Call to reserve, I only have so many. And of course we will also have all your favorite sausages, steaks, ribs and more...

Here is a little twist on falling off the bone, rib extravaganza. The Swineries Painted Hills Beef, short ribs cooked 3 times. First braised, second roast for 3 hours and third finished on the grilled with a barbecue sauce made from the juices.
