Seattle’s only sustainable butcher shop, the Swinery, has faced difficulties in the past and is now being handed over to investor James Dillon as the business’ founder, Gabriel Claycamp struggles with financial issues that have been complicated by a current divorce.

The meat shop, which carries cured meats, deli items, cheese, and dry goods, has had a contentious and troubled history despite its popularity in the area, and Claycamp has said that he has only received about $4,200 from the venture as the new small business struggled against growing expenses and monthly costs. Now, as he and his wife divorce, Claycamp told reporters that he cannot continue to try growing the business while also going through the process of ending his marriage. His main goal now, he said, is to find a new job working under someone else and having a regular paycheck so that he can care for his children.
