"THESE PEOPLE MAKING TV SHOWS DON’T HAVE A CLUE." said Harvey Mushman when Pointless Letters reached out for comment. "I DO. I COULD MAKE THESE SHOWS SO MUCH BETTER WITH JUST A CHANGE TO THEIR TITLES. I MEAN WHAT DOES MORSE EVEN MEAN? WHO WANTS TO WATCH A SHOW CALLED MORSE?

A few months ago I started buying my meat and poultry at a local butcher shop and it has really been so much better for many reasons:

  • Everything tastes a lot better, especially the meat because it is dry aged instead of sitting in a bloody freezer bag.
  • So much cheaper especially because I have the choice to buy from local farms.
  • I find a lot of exotic meats that I’ve never even heard of!
  • I GET TO SUPPORT LOCAL FARMS.

I know a lot of my friends didn’t even know about it and some where even too shy because they don’t know how to go and interact with a butcher and ask for what they specifically want. But I highly encourage everybody to do some research, find local butcheries, and just go over there and talk to the butchers. They are usually wonderful people who really care about their product and are willing to answer all your questions about the feed used and anything else you may ask!
