Tails & Trotters is a family run company in Portland, OR that specializes in Northwest hazelnut-finished pork. We have a wholesale operation that supplies our fresh pork to dozens of restaurants in the Northwest & nationally, and a 4-year old retail butcher shop and sandwich counter where we serve over 100 sandwiches daily, and produce over 100 different products from our hazelnut-finished pigs - culminating in our Good Food Award winning 2-year old Prosciutto Pacifico.

Late Wednesday night, Feb. 22 an electrical fire erupted at Tails & Trotters' retail shop in Portland, OR. The fire destroyed the lobby of our little butcher shop/sandwich counter, raging until a water line melted and put the fire out. Although the fire damage itself was limited to the shop's lobby, the smoke & heat damaged or destroyed nearly everything in the shop - equipment, supplies & all food items, including T&T's entire inventory of its 2-year old Prosciutto Pacifico.

We DO have insurance, and the long process in that realm has begun. Although those funds may limit the financial burden at the very end of the day, that day is many months down the road. We are dedicated to not only rebuilding/reopening our beloved shop, but to continue things in some manner as quickly as possible - for both owners and our dedicated team.

Funds contributed will go towards providing our staff  continuation of health benefits & wages by enabling us to establish limited production at a temporary location. This will allow us to re-start our sandwich and farmers market operations during the glacial insurance process.

The outpouring of support has been incredible, keeping the entire T&T family going during this WTF period. Any donation, no matter HOW small, is appreciated with all the love & humility we collectively can muster. THANK YOU!!

Thank you to all our supporters!! With your generosity, we have raised enough to start temporary production at our old commissary, KitchenCru next week! We are on track to debut at the PSU Farmers Market Saturday, April 1!!
Our insurance process progresses at a glacial pace, making setting up a temporary sandwich stand by early summer increasingly important. Please help us spread the word about our campaign!
Thank you!
Aaron & the T&T crew
