Matthew and Heather Hamilton believe in local beef. Trading in corporate jobs to raise their own cattle in 2009, the couple began Genesis Beef, and eventually opened Local Yocal Farm to Market, a butcher shop selling free-range beef and pasture-raised pork, chicken, and eggs. The two haven’t looked back since.
Local Yocal Farm to Market’s grass-fed cattle meander across the Hamilton family farm, where their caretakers swap out growth stimulants and antibiotics in favor of fresh air. At the shop, an in-house butcher with more than 25 years of experience ages and cuts beef to customer specifications. Visitors can partake in some of this expertise during classes that teach beef lovers the difference between a sirloin, a filet, and a rubber steak covered in dog drool. In addition to top cuts of meat, the shop’s shelves also bear the fruits of other locally sourced businesses, including Full Quiver Cheeses and Drinkable yogurts, Aduro Bean coffees, and AP's Apiaries Honey.
