Well without further ado it's an encore appearance very frank and Rachel dispenser and a husband wife team. There works and owns it dispenses meat market and ransom good morning folks humor and learning. Nice to have you back on board and I know things have been busy and frank you're telling me just before the show. Dirty entering your six year in business. We sure are six your business it's been growing. Quite rapidly and especially. It's nice to have a little bit of a break this Sunday because the last weekend was Easter was pretty busy. Allied that you were slapped Rachel what store hours are your top sellers a lot of lay out. Rib roasts. Cans deadly cancer top seller butts and we do make our fresh. Polish with margarine and parsley and he also. In a new feature is the chicken polish admired him in person so that was a big seller this demonstrates how ever how did you get a lot of traditional meet and manager and poultry that people really want. We do and what's unique about us is. We get some of the old school ethnic cuts that I can do because we are breaking down hall animals so we get questions all the time which. Sometimes I take for grant and someone will call and say can you cut me you know for instance a Brazilian cut which is content account from atop sterling. And I'll say that anybody in the area can't do this form. But because we are dealing with only animal I can cut any ethnic cut it one. So by ethnic cuts I'm afraid it's what you just described something in this case it would be this a Brazilian cod where what are some other types of all the authentic concert ethnic cuts that you encounter. Where there's our Hungarian kind of I parked only were you on. Can I make a slit in the natural on muscle pattern of the pork belly and and it's stuff so I don't do this stuff in but someone who's Hungarian would know. Exactly what their meat is where we do I'm so many different cuts of the lamb Greek orthodox Easter Israeli are now also. We we do on French lamb racks and lamb shanks. Bone and roast which you don't see in the supermarkets because they don't have the size so. Many of the things that we can do that you won't see at the supermarket. I was in Europe last October and I notice especially in Italy it seemed like park had it was everywhere. You hit some of those trends come from Europe to the US. Even it out not necessarily an artist and I suspect it's server commonplace thing now. Well really isn't with a great diversity in our area that we have. We get questions affecting just had a gentleman comment and was distraught over several different places he's been to that messed up or caddie didn't really know what it was. Andy's I let him come sit next to my cutting table and he was in tears as I made the authentic card and make it. It's probably resonates with people too because. Food to me as such have sort of a symbol of family life and tradition and a spam first generation. Italian so there's at heritage and constant use it preacher with your customers you hear that a lot. Away actually become an and they want some specific and a lot of times he'll say I can't find this anywhere. And frank even if he doesn't know he says yes and he figures it out and he gets it right and he just really good at what he does print humans are real pants. This instance I do I have a passion for the business but most of lot of passion for. Letting the customer field like you said there's a feeling of you know maybe it was your grandmother's that you go to and get to certain kind of meet that she made every week. I take a lot of pride and given some on the economy that gives them that memory and maybe a memory that they can build an outcast doesn't mean a lot to its. It's it is damning in our attacking me about butchering and meat market you really think that there's such an emotional component to them at their you know. I'm I'm thinking back to when I was a kid that dish is my mother made and the dishes I heard about my father was racist Troutman and small village in a Percy. You know they're really just can't recall some of those emotions. Let's talk specifically about to spend as it's at 3130 rich wrote in grants and now. And frank you know we talked to over the years I've known you for awhile now about how you're serving all the sale full service customer committed shop. And I think about the Brady Bunch for Sam the butcher effect do you get some camera people think your view is sort of at all for his temperature in your younger man. Well if it's amazing it really is I I told Rachel it's almost like where meet buyer 'cause I'm like the bartender I know. People's problems I know I could titans they'll if the bad times. I know when some watched him during know the economy to they want and the customers love that and there are ask me how to cook it. They're asking me what you servant with and it is it's exactly like that it's like Sam the butcher. Act as I always say it suspends his trust your butcher annoy your food exactly you should trust that I am gonna give you what you wanna. Treasure tortured her food I think is a great tagline and your open Wednesday through Sunday and it's your location. And so for the most parent when people command. It's seen form if you like what's it like when you lock in is it what you would expect to put your shepherd meat markets be it greed do you go and and and is and where is customized. It's it's customize what you would expect an old school but trichet activity so we do have your traditional class meat counters and everything but we have. The police decorated very nicely you know very it's and I are firemen our property which is unique so you can. See animals that are being treated well on the property you cut the animals which are patents. So. They and they're not ending up in the case could we are animal lovers but in our shop what you do notices if you look around. We are committed to locals so we have local dairy products local honey commercials. We have anything local that someone. To bring to us that we think Hasan shop we deal. I love the fit in support other businesses and answers artist and had a quality to it. Is they think you offer your customers they ask you specifically about theory China as a nodding your head what do you hear from your your customers. They want to know now more than ever where things are coming from so they'll ask I mean. The products on the shelves we'll save that they'll ask where's the meat coming from and I can tell them a fireman Powell you know I was raised and we banded these firms who we Knoll. You know highly annals of being treated and it's just they've that's what you. And you would hand them your store their product and wish you knew exactly where they are sourced from is airing absolutely yeah or was itchy come affirmed Clinton talked about. Absolutely teacup farmers and our Kurtz family run business because Liz and Tim I don't. They have a large family hard hard workers and truly you need to go to their founder respect. That. They made the milk is coming from their cows they only have I believe seven that there Melky now. They have coats. They make everything by hand there it slow time pasteurized. But there are so hire certified to sell raw milk at their arm. We can't sell Iran and our shops we saw the little time as terrorist and why is it better different. Just when we passed Trace milk. It takes a lot of the good benefits out of it and we're now there's no construed as cat. He too pro teams in this and everything management should just p.s that the raw milk comes from the animal that they're fed well. Not full of chemicals not full of bad products and not treated right it's the. Early in the pasture she's got gesture raised. Around their gesture than she brings an in every. Twist today in milk. And you don't wanna look at ingredients McCracken chemistry equation you know they can't throws man knack. It's nice to know that you can go where it's cure for this appears against basically. And when it comes to it and the meat market it's not just me that's a bit of a misnomer because you also sell fresh cut wild seafood. We do and that's taken off quite a bit NIA and no one's Smart enough to admit when. I don't know enough about a product that I learn about it so seafood it was a new thing to me about eight months ago. And luckily I am working closely with our Schneider seafood who goes to New England every single day to get to fresh seafood that's wild caught. And they'll tell you what's you know what's on the table for this week are there no way you can get fresh we're getting. Everything wildcard which means it's a much better for you because it's not farm raised with chemicals and other additives. And when it something is out of season like now are one of our biggest sellers. In Tokyo and Norwegian salmon it is organically farmed in Norway but I'm they don't use dyes or any chemicals and.
