At The Son of a Butcher, we like to work with smaller producers. Smaller operations allow you more access into the inner workings of the operation, like knowing the cattle buyer or the guy who owns the boats. It allows you to have a relationship with the people who make the operation tick, not just talking with a salesman.
The fresh seafood business is all about trust, so meeting fishermen face to face is important to us. A solid relationship with the fisherman gives a good inside look at their process, where they fish, how long the boats are on the water, how they store the fish while on the boat, etc.
With over 30 years of combined experience in specialty food, our cheesemongers and specialists are focused on bringing the best cheese and specialty products from all over the world to Birmingham, including our favorite local and regional producers.
Iberian Duroc Pork
Niman Ranch’s Iberian Duroc Pork Program includes pork that’s been crossbred with genetics from the Iberian Peninsula in Spain and Portugal and their Berkshire Hogs for phenomenal pork.
From the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, our Scottish Salmon is ethically farmed, hand-reared, and fed using all-natural ingredients, resulting in a flavorful fish with a buttery mouth-feel.
Tulip Tree Creamery
Produced from local cows in Northern Indiana, Tulip Tree Creamery hand-selects their milk for very hands-on production, resulting in distinct and identifiable products.
