About The Swinery:

The Swinery was started in 2008 out of a passion to bring authentic charcuterie to the Northwest and a desire to use the amazing pigs coming out of this area. Chef Gabriel Claycamp works with small local farmers to raise the perfect pig, one with enough fat to stay moist and wonderful through a long curing process. The Swinery makes everything from bacon and pancetta to prosciutto, sausages, salamis, coppa, and more… as well as amazing meats from other animals.


  1. Hi there.. Is there a place that these vendors are actually selling food? I love to eat at any of the places you've posted, but don't understand where to find them. Is there a set festival/market, or are these potential menus for future offerings?

  2. The Swinery is opening up a store in West Seattle on California Ave.

  3. Where have you disappeared to???

  4. A winery is a building or property that produces wine, or a business involved in the production of wine, such as a wine company. Some wine companies own many wineries. Besides wine making equipment, larger wineries may also feature warehouses, bottling lines, laboratories, and large expanses of tanks known as tank farms. seattle fertility acupuncture
