In the Spring of 1998, Dave's Meat Service began as a butcher shop for local farmers, ranchers and hunters to bring their home raised livestock and wild game to be processed. In recent years, with a higher demand for locally sourced meats we saw a need to begin our own retail business, as well as continue the cut and wrap services. In 2011, we became a licensed retail establishment with the California Department of Food & Agriculture. Since then we have expanded into making our own sausages, bacons, beef jerky and pepper sticks, but it hasn't stopped there. We source locally raised grass fed beef, naturally raised pork and lamb products, free range chickens and turkeys and even fresh seafood. With our own on-site smoke house, we sell pre-cooked favorites such as: smoked ribs, brisket, hams, turkeys and so much more! While maintaining our original location in West Modesto, we also participate in the seasonal Modesto Certified Farmers Market.
We look forward to maintaining our commitment to our customers to find meat products that they can feel good about serving; not only themselves, but also their family and friends. We realaize the importance of feeding high quality meats to our family and want to do the same for yours. Our motto is "If it's important to your family, it's important to ours." We look forward to growing our retail business through our website, and offering both new and continuing customers products that they can rely on being grown in a place not too far from home!
