Location: San Francisco, CA


4505 Meats was founded by chef Ryan Farr and his wife Cesalee in January of 2009. While working as a classically trained chef and heading a Michelin Star restaurant, Ryan developed his artisan butchery techniques and created unique ways of expressing his love for all things meaty. Ryan’s experience and voracious appetite are an ideal complement to Cesalee’s creativity, style, and overall vision for the company. The name 4505 is a tribute to a fellow chef and dear family friend, Davin Autrey, who influenced many people with his message to keep it real and always follow your stomach. Ryan and Cesalee are dedicated to flavor and quality, adding their own unique touches to create exceptional meaty products. Based out of San Francisco, they strongly believe in keeping it local and supporting the growing Bay Area community and food movement.

Currently 4505 Meats offers various cuts of dry-aged, grass-fed beef, premium pastured pork (including sausages), pastured chicken, and pasture-raised lamb. For a complete list of cuts and prices, visit the 4505 Meats website.  Additionally, they currently are offering their signature grass-fed, dry-aged 4505 Meats Cheeseburgers each week, grilled on site and served up fresh.
