Swingle Meat in Martell [Jackson, Amador County]

A friend mentioned Swingle Meat Co in Jackson to me. I wasn't familiar with it and there are no mentions on this board. Founded in 1945, its facebook page is pretty popular. The tag line is "The Carnivore's Toy Store".

Who can tell us about it?

  1. I've been to Swingle's a few times on my trips through Jackson. Their specialty is marinated tri-tip (I'm personally a fan of the Kona, but they're not keeping can read the ingredients for each marinade right on the package). They also do tons of interesting sausage, chicken, and pretty much any other kind of meat you can imagine. And mostly at very reasonable prices. I'd definitely pay them a visit if you're nearby.

      Appreciate the rec! My window for visiting Jackson has probably passed for the year, but I'll check it out next time I'm up that way.
