Chef Ryan Farr and his wife, Cesalee, founded 4505 Meats in January of 2009. While working as a classically trained chef and heading a Michelin Star restaurant, Ryan developed his artisan butchery techniques and created unique ways of expressing his love for all things meaty. The name 4505 is a tribute to a fellow chef and dear family friend, Davin Autrey, who influenced many people with his message to keep it real and always follow your stomach.
Ryan and Cesalee are dedicated to flavor and quality, adding their own unique touches to create exceptional meaty products. Based out of San Francisco, they strongly believe in keeping it local and supporting the growing Bay Area community and food movement. In this vein, besides just making artisan sausages and his patented chicharrones, Ryan also regularly teaches butchery classes for home and professional cooks.
