We are a local craft meat shop, offering high-quality meats. We exist to feed & nourish the community.
Salt, by nature, enhances flavor and brings out the best in food just as we strive to bring out the best in the people around us, whether that be our local community or the farmers and ranchers we partner with. We are the local choice for the best meats in Castle Rock, connecting the community and local farms and ranches.
Growing Up Local
Growing up right here in Castle Rock, Jordan Hinton started learning about meat science at a young age through 4H and FFA. While at Colorado State University earning a Master's Degree in Meat Science, she worked in the school’s meat lab and managed catering events for hundreds of people. Before launching SALT, Jordan spent a number of years certifying food labeling claims, including natural, organic, Non-GMO, and animal welfare verification programs. She also spent the last several years gaining experience in marketing and consumer insights related to food. Jordan and her husband Ralph, also a Colorado native, live on a farm near Elizabeth with their three young children. Ralph is passionate about animal nutrition, and he raises pigs for 4H and FFA youth whom he mentors, as well as some of the pork featured at SALT.
We believe family dinners are where memories are made, and lives are built. We believe in knowing where your food comes from and understanding the importance of sustainable agriculture. We believe kindness and hospitality can make a difference. We believe in community. We believe in sharing a meal with people from different backgrounds and life experiences. We believe buying & preparing meat shouldn't be difficult. You should have choices in what to feed your family and you should feel good about your choices.
