Heritage Hogs

About Us

Salazar Meats is on the cutting edge of small-scale, sustainable meat production. We are one of only a handful of farm-based USDA inspected slaughter and processing facilities in the country. We raise heritage breed hogs (Berkshire) and Angus-cross cattle for sale in bulk packages. Several cured and/or smoked products are available in local food markets in northern New Mexico and the Rocky Mountain Region of Colorado. You can also purchase our products in an open air setting at the Taos Farmers Market on Saturdays from May-October. Lastly, we are open to the public for custom processing on a USDA or Not-for-Sale (private use) basis. Not-for-Sale processing includes wild game options.

Our Vision and Philosophy

Salazar Meats values the development of local, sustainable economies. We hope and strive for a system of animal agriculture that honors animals, land, and people. Rather than seeking to build an empire of meat production, we would like to see a more diverse, small-scale and distributed system of animal agriculture and meat processing. Therefore, we operate in a cooperative and collaborative spirit with other small-scale growers and processors.


  • To provide high quality meat that is locally, sustainably, and humanely raised for distribution in Colorado and the northern New Mexico region.
  • To provide humane slaughter and/or high quality meat processing services to farmers, ranchers, and hunters in Colorado and the northern New Mexico region.
