Humane processing of your animals is our number one priority and we are very fortunate to have had John Taylor (1 Shot JT) as our mobile ranch butcher. John served Sonoma, Napa, Marin and the surrounding counties for over 30 years. Now that John is in the shop full time, Gabe Naredo has taken over the mobile ranch butchering, and you can find him driving around in JT's signature blue slaughter truck. Though Gabe has just recently taken over JT's truck, he has 10+ years experience in ranch slaughtering and is still the only one in the business to offer scalding for hogs. He is guaranteed to be nothing but professional and humane when it comes to harvesting your livestock.
Since John's purchase of Willowside Meats in 2019, with his partner Chris Peterson, he has integrated his mobile slaughtering operation with Willowside Meats making the process easier for his customers. We are thankful that Gabe is following in JT's footsteps and continuing this relationship with us.
How it Works
Gabe's work is truly unique in that he is fully equipped to take care of your animal right on your farm, which is a far less stressful situation for your livestock when compared to hauling to the nearest slaughterhouse. Gabe brings all the necessary equipment with him and leaves hardly a trace of the work that has been done. After he skins and cleans the carcass he hangs it up in the box attached to his truck. From there he hauls the carcass back to our shop for further processing.
All scheduling is done through Gabe directly. To get scheduled please call (707) 889-2340. Please note that during our busy season, May through September, Gabe's schedule can become booked out a few weeks in advance.
