Your local butcher shop since 1897

Arroyo Grande Meat Company has been a full-service butcher shop since 1897. We take great care to offer the very finest meats available anywhere. We serve fantastic tri-tip sandwiches, the local favorite.

We offer many types of top-quality meats, but our specialty is sausage. Our amazing home-made sausages are authentic and natural, carefully prepared without fillers, nitrates or chemicals. See our Cooking page for tips on how to make them the best sausages you ever had.

Arroyo Grande Meat Company also offers custom processing, including curing, smoking, and sausage production.

For Christ's love compels us...
2 Corinthians 5:14

Our Mission: To give you the very finest meat and the absolute best service money can buy. Our rule is simple: If it's not good enough for my mom, it's not good enough for you! We are human. We make mistakes, everbody does. It not the fact that we make mistakes that makes us human, it's how we take care of you when we do. And we promise to take care of you. Money doesn't buy that... love does.

—Henry & Julie Gonzalez & Crew

And by His stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5-6

The Common Law of Business Balance
There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey. It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money -- that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot -- it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.
