About Ansel: 

Ansel grew up in Northern New York on a small subsistence farm steeped in sustainable organic agriculture. After moving to NYC in 2017, inspired by their upbringing around New York small farmers, they began training as a butcher at Dickson's Farmstand Meats in Chelsea Market. Ansel spent several years honing their craft at Fleishers Craft Butchery and managed the Brooklyn shop from 2019-2020. In June of 2020 they joined the Local Roots team as the Operations Team Lead where they manage the warehouse staff packing the markets and home delivery boxes.
