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!

Dates are awesome to the max. So is Hawaii (or so I hear …). How can dates from Hawaii not be awesome? They’re also organic and harvested by UFW members.

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

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?
