At Belcampo, our mission is to craft exceptional, sustainably produced food and make it available on a larger scale than ever before. The land is the heart of everything we do, and our unwavering commitment to act as good stewards of the land is the foundation of all of our operations: organic farms, butcher shops and restaurants, and agritourism destinations.

We love welcoming passionate people to our growing team, and we’re champions for the reprofessionalization of culinary and agricultural jobs.


About

Seth Crabtree

Director of Value Added Products
Read Bio

Seth joined Belcampo with a restaurant industry background where working with high quality products taught him to appreciate everything that goes into bringing wholesome and delicious food products to market. While his early focus was on fresh produce, he quickly noticed how under served the market was for well-raised animals. He left the restaurant industry and went to work for Boccalone where he learned to make traditional Italian salumi using high quality pork. He then worked at the Local Butcher Shop in Berkeley, where he expanded his skills to utilize a wide variety of meats, as well as developing a whole animal approach. While he appreciates every animal he works with, he has a special affinity for pigs, and the slow, time-honored practices that lead to the best possible cured meats.
