Meet Dolores

Dolores is a tough lady.  She’s a custom built wood-fired smoker that can handle just about anything.  Built from a steel tank with a stamped date of 1946 and a side wood stove to boot on a heavy duty trailer frame, she’s built to last.  I named her after my German Grandmother who taught me the love of cooking and eating.  Dolores and I are for hire.  Weddings, whole animal roasts, gatherings and long term meat preservation.  We have you covered.  Dolores is insured and fire safe.  If interested email: or call: 541.231.4085.

Breaking Down the Whole Hog, part 2

We put together a collection of images from yesterday’s butchering, but a quick warning: while we believe it’s important to know where our food comes from, and to recognize it for what it is, a few of the images in the collection are graphic. Please use your judgment.

Spring Beer Dinner at Corvallis Brewing Supply

This Sunday, April 3, 2011, BMC proprietor, Brad Burnheimer, joins Corvallis Brewing Supply in celebrating the release of Sierra Nevada’s 30th Anniversary ales with a special beer dinner featuring BMC meats and Gathering Together Farm produce.

The menu, prepared by Burnheimer, pairs each specialty ale with a complimentary dish. Menu items  include: pork belly confit, boudin blanc (a chicken/pork sausage), country pork pate and fresh-cream bourbon ice cream floats.

Twenty-five seats were made available for the dinner, and we’re proud to say that every one already has a name on it.


It’s official. After meeting with the Oregon Department of Agriculture, receiving site approval, filling out paperwork and paying fees, the Burnheimer Meat Company is licensed by the state to sell fresh meats, sausages and salumi to the public.

Look for us soon at the Gathering Together Farm stand and other local markets.
