Sam Masler

Shop Manager, Greenwich

Sam joined the Fleishers family in January 2018 after co-managing a butcher shop in Nashville, TN for several years. She became interested in butchery after studying the environmental impacts of animal agriculture through UVM’s Environmental Studies program and receiving an MA in Food Studies from Chatham University in Pittsburgh. Prior to her work in butcher shops, Sam worked at a whiskey distillery, at a raw goat milk dairy, as a National Park ranger, and as an environmental educator. When not preaching the good word of sustainable meat production, Sam spends her time with her wife and cats in New Haven, CT.

Trevor Bundy

COO

After serving as a butcher and protein manager, Trevor, himself a graduate of the Fleishers Butchery Training program, now directs the company’s school, widely considered to be among the best in the nation for revitalizing the art and craft of whole animal butchery. Horrified by factory farms, Trevor spent many years as a vegetarian before welcoming sustainable and humanely raised meat back into his life. He lives in the New York metro area with his wife and two sons, with whom he eats bacon almost daily (pasture-raised, of course). He holds his BA in English Language/Literature from the University of Kansas.
