About Us

Our quality cuts and time-perfected flavors are a Northern California classic. With over a century of developing our signature family recipes, we really know meat. 

In 1911, Herman Schwarz and his business partner, Rheinhold Frommer, established their butcher shop in San Francisco, California. Seventeen years later, a different German business duo started a different company called Home sausages. The two brands merged in 1998, combining decades of sausage-making experience.



We built our new facility in a city outside of San Francisco nearly twenty years ago, where we do what we do best. We've brought our past into the present, using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative production techniques.

We have some very loyal fans, both locally and across the country. We love to hear from you, so give us a shout!
