Marin Sun Farms Butchers Stage Reported Walkout
Details are nonexistent, but it looks like meat cutters at Marin Sun Farms' wholesale butcher shop in the Dogpatch have walked out following an alleged disagreement with management. A call to the Tennessee Street facility brought neither confirmation nor denial, just a request to call Marin Sun Farms owner David Evans. (So far, no one from Marin Sun Farms has returned SFoodie's calls.) But in a call to Marin Sun Farms' retail counter in Rockridge, manager Chuck Traugott didn't deny the report of a butcher walkout, saying it hadn't affected the supply of meat to his shop. Based in West Marin, Marin Sun Farms is known for its commitment to sourcing pastured animals. The company supplies some of the city's most respected restaurants, places like Nopa, Zuni, and Jardiniere. It's unclear what effect any labor interruption would have on them.
