Humanely Raised Veal

Just yesterday Terry and his butcher staff got a delivery of whole pastured veal and they’ve already broken it down and turned it into some exciting new additions to the meat case.

Try The Currant Event, a veal sausage made with fresh veal, heritage pork, dried currants and cranberries, smoked paprika and a little whole grain mustard. He’s also made meatballs with ground veal and heritage pork with lots of fresh herbs, garlic, onion and Pecorino cheese.  Other cuts and stew meat are available, just stop by the butcher counter and ask!

We are committed to only offering pastured, humanely-raised veal.  Humanely raised veal means that the calves were free to roam, never tethered or raised in confinement and were never administered growth hormones or antibiotics.  Our veal comes from Slope Farms in upstate New York.

The Real Veal

In the fall Terry the butcher was busy visiting upstate farms sourcing the best meat for his case.  All that hard work has paid off as we can now announce that the meat case is 100{0886acb4f5be58b49bf4e022446f4168c3918f2aad77c1481cecb92c8f2156f3} sourced from a 200-mile radius.  100{0886acb4f5be58b49bf4e022446f4168c3918f2aad77c1481cecb92c8f2156f3} grass-fed beef from Slope Farms & Arcadian Pastures, heritage pork from Arcadian Pastures, lamb from Stone & Thistle Farms and now veal from Slope Farms.

We’ll have veal in fresh later today.  There are a lot of simple veal recipes out there to make a quick mid-week meal.  If you’re interested in something more challenging for a large group, last week Sabrina made the stuffed veal roast recipe from Joy of Cooking (online here with a lot of other simple veal recipes) and she says it’s a lot of fun and delicious.  If you’ve got a great veal recipe, let us  know.
