About Us

Longhorn Meat Co. has been serving Auburn and its surrounding areas since 1976. Over the years, we’ve found the best suppliers for local, all natural, and grass fed meats. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality artisan meats, processed in the most compassionate way possible.

At Longhorn, we know that quality takes time. That’s why we use old-fashioned, time-honored, butchering methods like hand-cutting our meats. Our beef is dry-aged in a process that gently coaxes out incredible tenderness and unsurpassed flavors. It may take longer to do things our way, but the results are worth it. Our top-tier butchering artistry has earned Longhorn a local Best of the Best designation from our local customers.

As a boutique butcher shop, we are able to focus on our craft and provide the best quality local, regional, natural, grass-fed, sustainable, and humanely processed meat available. At Longhorn, it’s all about the meat.


Longhorn Meat Co. is a family owned and operated business founded in 1976 in Newcastle, CA. Owner-operator Phil Kattenhorn grew up working alongside his father, the original owner of Longhorn Meat Co. Phil took over the family business when his father retired, moving the shop to the Auburn location where it has serviced the local community for over ten years.

Longhorn Meat Co. continues to use the same artisan butchering methods that have delighted customers for over four decades. Combining a time-honored art of hand-cutting meat with state-of-the-art equipment, Longhorn has become the go-to destination for meat processing. Local residents know there is only one place to go for the best quality, best tasting, and most skillfully cut meats: Longhorn.
