We are excited to host Real Food Real Stories and Aaron and Monica Rocchino of The Local Butcher Shop, a high-quality, sustainable whole animal butchery in Berkeley, CA.Aaron and Monica met at Oliveto, and we’re enormously proud of them and consider them part of our family. They will share with you stories of their journey and why they dedicate their lives in this challenging and important work. The Local Butcher Shop sources pasture-raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats from local farmers and ranchers located within 150 miles of the Berkeley shop.

Real Food Real Stories creates storytelling gatherings in the Bay Area — the group works to empower the sustainable food movement by facilitating an intimate connection with food changemakers.


A delicious, rustic brunch will be prepared, using meat from The Local Butcher Shop and grains from Community Grains. Come eat,  commune, and hear The Local Butcher Shop’s authentic story.
