Come help us celebrate the opening of our new Lafayette store on September 30th from 3-5pm. Radio talent Mack from K-105’s morning show will be here to help liven up the party. My brother, Jared, reminded me to stop and enjoy the work we do from time to time so here we go Brother Jared! We have invited Jordan Mirrick, owner of RTB Chefs back to Souvid some of our local beef raised by Newby Farms making the perfect sandwich to enjoy on a fall day! We will have plenty of specials and even some samples out to enjoy!
Adam has been at work in the new shop filling the case with local meats. Here in this picture he is cutting pork from Phelps Family Farm. Joe and Vonda Phelps were a mentor of mine back when I started at the Trader’s Point Creamery Farmer’s Market many years ago. They have been raising hogs outside for generations. They certainly inspired me to keep farming even when it was difficult.
Here in our dry age window we have middles from a beef raised by Ed Newby from Thorntown. This beef has dry aged on the rail for 2 weeks. We will see how long we can keep it before it is needed in the case as rib eyes and NY strips. Dry aging improves flavor, tenderness, and food safety! Only 5% of beef in America is dry aged today so if you eat from us, you are eating in the top 5%.
I am sure you can see I am excited to show the hard work of the last several months! Below is the press release going out to announce our event. I hope you can come out and celebrate with us!
