About the BMC

Burnheimer Meat Co., owner, Brad Burnheimer

Meat is a beautiful thing

Burnheimer Meat Company was born out of necessity.  The need to provide the community with healthy, local meat.

It began by Burnheimer making sausage with his German Grandmother in Pennsylvania when he was a kid.  Burnheimer started working at Gathering Together Farm in Philomath, OR in 2009.  It was there as well as stages in Portland, OR at Laurelhurst Market and Old Salt Marketplace that Burnheimer realized there was a great need for butchers, processors and charcuterists.  BMC started in 2011 in the kitchen of GTF.  Since, BMC has grown and moved into its own facility, Brad won Iron Chef Eugene 2013 and continues to collaborate with local farms, breweries, wineries and cider houses.  The sourcing and attention to detail is what sets BMC apart.

The Salami Logs: a note

The Salami Logs are a snapshot into the Burnheimer Meat Company. They’re a journal, a learning tool, a record book and a celebration of my work and passion for the business and artistry of charcuterie. Thank you for reading. – Brad

    Hi Cousin,
    Congratulations on opening your own business, “Burnheimer Meat Company.” No, I don’t think you know me but my mother was a Burnheimer from PA. Not sure where you fit into the family either but I would like to know so I can notify our other cousins of your success. Let me know at robert.e.troup@verizon.net
