Local farm for meat/lard

MichaelB | Sep 20, 2006 03:58 AM

This is actually a shout-out to cheryl_h who posted on General Topics about buying leaf lard from a local farmer (for cheap!), but I thought I'd make the query a little more general-purpose. Cheryl, can you say what farm it is, and do they sell to the general public? I'd love to have a good place to buy local pork.

More generally, what local farms do people like for meat? I get beef from River Rock Farms at their farmer's market stands and like it a lot, but I'd love to hear about other places, especially for pork. Specifically, do they have fresh cuts available, how is their butchering, do they have minimum orders, do they age their beef?. And, of course, how is the overall quality of the meat? Which farms are people's favorites?

Many thanks in advance!
