Meat Wagon Man: Stefano Diaz
Stefano Diaz owns The Meat Wagon Butchery to the Kingston’s Waterfront Farmers market. Stefano is taking that dream to four walls and a floor in Kingston. We will hear about his work with local farms, his commitment to grass-fed, creating a mobile butcher shop and where he goes from here.
Stefano worked at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, where he learned a style of butchering called Italian seam breaking. It was then he learned the love of butchering.
He returned to NY and completed Fleishers’s three-month apprenticeship program in September of 2015. From there on, he worked in the Fleisher’s Kingston shop as a head butcher until it closed in 2017.
“I found myself soon after working at Marbled Meat Shop in Cold Spring NY where I helped grow the butchering program. The Meat Wagon mobile butchery is my way of returning to Kingston.”
