About the Owner...

Owner/Operator Brianna Hagell decided to leave her boring office career five years ago to pursue her passion of learning about food. 

Early on she realized she didn't want to be a chef and work in a restaurant, so decided she wanted to be the person who supplied the best ingredients to the chefs. With her experience within the high-end retail grocery and farm market industry, the challenge of butchering was a natural progression in her path to learning.


She quickly realized that people are scared of their food, where is comes from, where it's grown, how it got to their plate; and no industry has done a better job at hiding those steps from the consumer then the meat industry.


‘Vessel Meats to me is a platform for learning for both myself and the consumer; the Alderney Landing Market provides an amazingly supportive community who want to know and learn not only about the life of the animal from farm to plate, but also the best ways to utilize the whole animal.’
