We’re Erica and Will Messmer, the wife-and-husband team behind Darke Pines butcher shop. Dedicated to locally-sourced, responsibly-raised meat, Darke Pines is the only neighborhood meat supplier serving Downtown Jersey City.

With our team of experienced butchers, we cut, cook, and serve 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, pastured pork, and free-range poultry, all hormone and antibiotic free and sourced from small, local farms.

Our expanding menu of house-prepared foods includes charcuterie, sandwiches, soups, and stocks.
