A Belated Happy New Year

This holiday season was absolutely and unequivocally the most intense I’ve had as a butcher. We had over 300 orders, not including walk-ins, for the 2 of us to fill. I lost count of rib roasts and filets early in the season. I’m happy that we, such a small, local operation, are doing that kind of business. However, I am in conversations with my scientist friends concerning pills to make me grow more arms…

The life of a butcher during the holiday season goes something like this: report to work 8am, work until 1am, report back to work at 8am. Repeat for 2-3 weeks. Luckily, I have amazing friends and a lady who are able to deal with my insanity and lack of sleep. I’m not the typical grumpy butcher. My boss, however… 😉

The aforementioned rib roast, with short ribs still attached. Simply beautiful.

We are going to be extraordinarily busy in the coming months, as we are hosting a variety of classes in the market; offal, lamb cutting, beef cutting, farm to table, goat cutting, sausage making. See http://www.bluescreekfarmmeats.com/ for more details if you are in the Columbus area.

More posts soon.
