Slow Food Orange County presented the second Snail of Appreciation Award to Wheat and SonsButcher/Rotisserie, Ashly Amador and Nate Overstreet proprietors, on Saturday May 31 at their brand new shop in the Packing District, 440 S. Anaheim Blvd, Anaheim CA.
We are so excited to have an authentic butcher and butcher shop in Orange County. Finding meat from a source the guarantees that its meat is from animals that were humanely raised and fed appropriate, organic food has been a challenge. We are so lucky to have his shop available. Meat can by custom ordered. Nate also brings tremendous talent in creation of artisan charcuterie that is available at Wheat and Sons.
Slow Food OC’s Snail of Appreciation award recognizes the commitment of Wheat and Sons to work with producers in the local area to ensure that their poultry, meat, and produce are raised humanely and to the highest standards in ways that support the ecosystem of the land.
Wheat and Sons are committed to use everything from the animal in a way that showcases that ingredient in its best form to create rotisserie items, market inspired sandwiches and sausages, and award winning Charcuterie.
We recognize their willingness in teaching classes, educating consumers about meat products and bringing us closer to the food we eat.
