Ryan Creek Root Cellar

Makers of Fine American Charcuterie 

Eureka California

How are we different?

Thank you for visiting our online store! At Ryan Creek Root Cellar the majority of our traditional, specialty products are manufactured under the inspection of California Department of Food and Agriculture, and are therefore only available at our tasting room: The Boardroom in Eureka, CA and here online! 

Our facility is currently able to process a small amount of federally inspected product. We have USDA/FSIS approval for our dry-uncured, smoked bacon and dry-uncured pork jowl (guanciale) meaning that we can sell interstate, as well as wholesale. The federal government has coined this processing category as "Heat Treated, Not Fully Cooked, Not Shelf Stable." Pretty sexy right? We are looking forward to being able to offer more interstate products in the very near future...

All of the meats we use are sourced nearby, and we work with local farmers on special products.As a note: We do not preslice any of our products due to issues with oxidation and product quality. In order to combat oxidation, we vacuum pack or wrap whole cuts of meat in selectively permeable papers or barrier bags to assure the best quality.

About Us


Blend Master

Ryan Creek Root Cellar is a very small cured and smoked meat manufacturer in remote Humboldt County, California. Our name comes from Ryan Creek, a waterway with historical significance to the growth of our area. The "Root Cellar" references the temperate climate and humidity of Eureka, and California's north coast. These conditions are perfect for traditional meat curing, ripening and drying. 


Our products can be purchased at The Boardroom (our tasting room), as part of a charcuterie board or to go from the deli case. 

Stay tuned for other retail establishments to find our products...
