What I get from the butcher smells much much better. What you get from the grocery store just can't compare, it just has to travel to far and is more processed, spends more time in the case, etc.
What I get from the butcher is much fresher as it is ground that day. Or, if I go right away sometimes it was ground the night before. Plus, I think they use a higher quality fat when grinding and mixing it up.
