Time Out says

This Seattle butcher shop certainly knows its way around meat, which shows in an excellent roster of sandwiches graced with the likes of crispy pork belly, house-smoked ham and pulled pork. We’re partial to the over-the-stop Swinery Spectacular, a pork-glorifying triple dose of all those aforementioned meats, plus melty Swiss cheese, creamy Dijon aioli and briny house pickles.

The Swinery says
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
