jeeks, there is more than one way to skin a cat

It was a revelation to me many years ago that I could obtain high quality meat without ever stepping foot into a grocery or butchers' shop.

If you have any sympathy for the food mile issue (how many miles a food travels to get to your table)/supporting your local farmer/eating grass or range fed animals, there is a whole network of food producers out there across the US. An easy way to tap into this network is to visit your local farmers market when it opens in the Spring. Just ask the vendors, if a meat vendor is not present, to point you in the direction of a local meat raiser. I know these lists are also online so you could do a search for New Jersey, range fed meat/on farm sales/local meats/etc.

Happy chewing!

My maternal grandfather was a "meat cutter". He didn't use the term butcher. I remember as a little boy going into the meat market with sawdust on the floor and the big wheel of cheese that was sliced and sold by weight.

The Publix stores around here have pretty good meat markets, but I don't trust the Kroger markets. Thankfully, I just found a first rate butcher shop with nice prices.
