The butcher case features Maine-raised pastured meats and poultry. We are proud to know the farmers who produce our Beef, Lamb, Pork, Veal and poultry. Their commitment to natural, ethical & sustainable farming fits with our desire to offer the very best quality local meat. Our meats are raised and free from antibiotics and growth hormones.
We offer friendly, comprehensive butchering services. Whether you are looking for a three-inch thick steak, the perfect roast, or fresh house-made sausage, our team has something special to recommend. We are happy to custom-cut or grind any of our meats - just ask!

WE BAKE BAGUETTES EVERY DAY!
Please try our House-made CHOCOLATE SALAMI. This dessert originated in Portugal and has been embraced by many other countries, especially those with a salami making tradition, such as Italy.
This faux salami confection is not made with meat! Instead it is made with a cocoa batter filled with crushed-up cookies and nuts. It is then rolled into a log to simulate both the shape and marbling of a meat based Salami. When served it is cut into disks that can be dressed-up on a plate with a dollop of whipped cream or served simply like a cookie.
Additional bakery items include:
Crackers & Whole Wheat Crackers
Fruit & Nut Granola
Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cakes - Gluten Free
Olive Oil Toasts
Double Chocolate Chunk Pecan Cookies
Ginger Molasses Cookies
Sesame Oatmeal with Currents
