...We tried the bacon this morning and I just wanted to let you know that it is hands down the best bacon my husband and I have ever tasted. It crisped up beautifully and had such depth of flavour and a salty umami-ness. So good...

American Charcuterie in Eureka CA?

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! During the pandemic we have also been working  on a few 'kiosk' opportunities here in Humboldt County and are looking forward to partnering with other local businesses and artisans...

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). This grant of inspection allows us to market and sell these items interstate, as well as to wholesale customers. We are working hard on this, and hope to expand our capabilities in near future. Please remember to ask your local grocer to consider Ryan Creek Root Cellar's specialty products!

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...
