Pasta with Fennel Sausage & Swiss Chard

This is my favorite no-fuss dinner—pasta with lots of greens and a flavorful sausage. It comes together in 30 minutes and might be the perfect thing after all the extravagant holiday meals. While the pasta water heats, clean the chard and slip the sausage out of its casing. While the pasta cooks, toss the sausage in […]

Our Birds: A Poultry Primer

Sourcing pasture-raised chickens is tough. We’ve learned over the last four years how difficult it is for farmers to raise chickens on a small scale and still be financially viable.

It’s Grass-Fed Beef Season

Summer is the season we obsess over heirloom tomatoes and colorful stone fruit at summer farmer’s markets.  Here at The Local Butcher Shop, we’re also obsessing over the summer meat, specifically, grass-fed beef and lamb. You might not think of meat having a season. After all, burgers never go off the menu, right? But considering […]

The terms bone broth and stock are used interchangeably, though some folks differentiate them by the ratio of bone to meat used. Whatever you like to call it, it’s good stuff; and we’re serving it hot by the cup at The Local Butcher Shop. […]

The Essence of Nose to Tail Eating

We cut steaks and roasts, chops and shanks from whole animal carcasses here at The Local Butcher Shop. If you’ve been in the shop, you’ve probably noticed our butchers carving intently next to metal bowls to collect the scraps. Those bits of meat, fat, bones, and skin are not thrown out. Bones go to make […]
