As we all know, the way to get the best and cheapest (sometimes – depending on where you live) produce is to buy local. There are a couple of different web sites I’ve come across to help you find your local: farmer’s market, co-op, family farm, produce CSA, local-food restaurant, etc. These are for the US, so if you know of a good web site for any other country leave it in the comments!

If you haven’t had bison before, it’s very tasty. It’s a lot like beef, but much leaner. It’s also very tasty. I’ve ever only had it in burger form, but Black Wing Meats has just about every cut you can imagine from free range bison (scientific name: bison bison. yes really).
$30 for 5lb of brisket from Black Wing Meats
Have you ever had a truffle chicken sausage? Me neither, but it sounds tasty. Five different packs of chicken sausage for all your grilling needs. Made from free-range chickens raised in low-volume environments. Nom.

It’s food week on Butch Style. Why? Because I love food, that’s why. First up is some cream cheese from Night Sky Farm in Virginia. It comes from a cow named Emily. Yes, the cow has a name. How great is that?

Now, to be fair, I am classless enough that I generally drink my whiskey straight from the bottle. Or from my shot glass that looks like a goldfish-populated hooker shoe. But maybe you like to sit on your porch on those nice summer evenings and sip whiskey, or perhaps you’re trying to impress the inlaws. This might be just the thing for you. Stick these Vermont-made soapstone whiskey stones in the freezer for a while and use them to cool off your next glass of alcohol without watering it down.
