who we are
4505 Meats began back in 2009 when chef and butcher, Ryan Farr, started frying up chicharrones in his home kitchen. Living in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, Ryan was inspired by the many bodegas and shops that carried chicharrones and he thought that the snack would be a great use for the pork skins he often saw thrown away in butchery practices and restaurant kitchens. With his first kid on the way, Ryan decided to start making chicharrones at home and selling them to local bars for extra cash. The chicharrones quickly became infamous throughout the city and endearingly dubbed “crispy clouds of porkaliciousness.”
