What makes our butchery & house made charcuterie so unique and specialized?
Blackbelly is the first and only independent, whole animal butcher shop in Boulder, CO. We are also the only facility licensed to make and sell our own cured meats. Our butcher team, led by Nate Singer, utilizes rare skills passed down for generations. All animals are raised on our friends' ranches and enjoy life in their natural surroundings. These conditions result in the unparalleled quality of all the meat found at Blackbelly.
Blackbelly salumi and charcuterie can take weeks, months or even years to produce. It is truly a labor of love. Our provisions include dry-fermented salami and European-style whole cured muscles, such as prosciutto and coppa. Our house made charcuterie selection also includes pates and terrines, fresh sausages and more.
Our program is designed to utilize the whole animals we receive, and it is not always possible to guarantee availability of every cut, but we always find something very comparable, and the best method is seeing Nate in the shop!
The end result is a modern, artisanal experience that preserves an old world butcher shop approach.

Meet your meat!
We work directly with local ranchers we trust and know personally: RC & Mark of Carter Country Meats, Clint and Mary Kay Buckner of Boulder Lamb & Meats, Taylor McDonald from McDonald Family Farm. Both Carter Country and Boulder Lamb have always applied organic standards to their practices, but they have recently taken steps to deepen their commitment by investing in official organic certification from the USDA.
Blackbelly Beef: Our Carter Country cows come from Ten Sleep, WY. They are dry-aged for a minimum of 35 days, which results in extremely flavorful and tender beef. Blackbelly is working with the Carters to develop a groundbreaking feeding progra to raise standards for sustainability.
Blackbelly Lamb: Boulder Lam & Meats is run by sixth generation rancher Clint Buckner, whose family has raised lamb for more than 130 years. They breed Columbia / Rambouillet ewes, known for their hardiness, with Suffolk and Dorset, resulting in extremely tender meat. They are 100% grass-fed and raised in pasture in Boulder County.
Blackbelly Pork: Our Heritage breed pigs are dry-aged for a maximum of 2 weeks. They are born, raised and slaughtered in Colorado. Our pork comes from two ranches: Clint Buckner's Boulder-based farm, where our Berkshire pigs are fed on a diet 100% from Boulder County; and McDonald family farm, where Duroc Pigs are raised and fed in Brush, CO.
