Who we are.
As one of the only charcuteries in Montana, we turn the highest quality local meat into Old World style dry cured sausages and whole muscle charcuterie. Creating delicious new takes on classic flavors with local ingredients and a chef’s ingenuity, Grotto Meats preserves the best of Montana in every bite. Our “grotto” is tucked in the basement of the historic Bon-Ton Flour Mill building behind our food truck in Bozeman, MT, and houses a custom climate controlled curing chamber. Partnering with local distributors to procure the finest local meat, we take great care in sourcing sustainable, pastured pork, and each batch is hand-crafted with love and expertise by a small staff.
