Testa Duro Salumi is a small underground meat CSA that makes artisan cured meats. Founder Jason Azevedo is committed to using animals raised in a humane manner and providing a product that focuses on quality rather than quantity. He butchers all of the meat that is used and hand crafts delicious sausage, bacon and other tasty treats. These meat products are the real deal!
In order to bring his business "above ground" he needs some commercial grade equipment. First on the list, a chamber vacuum sealer and label machine. This equipment will allow him to seal the meat and label it so that meets USDA and CDFA (California version of USDA) standards, enabling him to sell at farmers markets and to local stores and vendors. Getting this Kickstarter project funded will be an awesome step toward Jason's dream of owning a brick and mortar butcher shop.
Raise enough funds to purchase a chamber vacuum sealer and label machine. When we meet our goal, we'll update you on where the extra funds will go!
We are FUNDED! Thank you so much for helping Testa Duro move toward our dream! But we aren't done yet! An additional $1200 will allow us to buy a new grinder and a larger stuffer. Let's keep this fantastic momentum up!
Will allow Testa Duro to expand their market from friends of friends of facebook friends... to farmers markets and local specialty markets. Jason's dream is to own a brick and mortar butcher shop where he can fill a need in our Sacramento community for fresh, local and humanely raised meat, salumi, and other tasty treats. BACON-MARMALADE ANYONE?
Jason believes in "voting with your dollar", and hopes you will vote for his project, with your George Washingtons!
