Yeah, the meat in the supermarket pretty much sucks. We normally go to the Peach Stand just across the state line in SC. They're steaks are fantastic. However, there is a butcher opening on Providence Road in Waxhaw in the next month. It's in the same little shopping center with the Benjamin Moore Paints, Ace Hardware, etc.

Iredell County is one of the highest milk producing counties in the state. Go figure.

Grocery store butchers usually do not have the selection a specialty butcher will have.
Where in Mooresville?? My neighbor found one that deals with restaurants. They will sell to the general public, but you have to call the day before you go to place an order. It's on either rte 115 or rte 21, not sure.

Also, Ferrucci's Italian Deli in Cornelius (exit 28 on I-77) carries meats, but they are pricey. I haven't bought anything from them yet so I can't say what the quality is like.

Food Lion has the worst meats, but Bloom isn't bad. The Harris Teeter in Mooresville is dirty. I buy in either BJ's or Lowe's (Lowe's carries Boars Head cold cuts). We do alot of chicken & turkey in my house. Chicken cutlets are expensive here. Can't find turkey breasts either. Wish I could because we used to make one a week. They only carry them around the holidays.

A real butcher would be nice!!

I think it was down on 150, towards 801 but not that far. On the right side, I remember that, red lettering on the sign. If it wasn't on 150, it was on N. Broad St.. Those were the only roads I was on yesterday. I'm going to look in my Lake Norman phonebook. I'll remember it if I see it!

Wow, my wife and I were just doing a Yellow Pages search for a butcher because we too feel that butcher meat is better quality and a bit cheaper than meat from the supermarket. How far is Fort Mill from Union? TIA!

North Carolina's dairy industry is dying as a result of increased production and fuel costs, interstate dairy competition and a shortage of young farmers willing to carry on the state's dairy tradition. North Carolina lost an additional 25 dairy farms during the past year, which resulted in a decrease from 365 to 340 farms. North Carolina is dairy deficient, and thus, depends on milk and dairy products from other states to adequately meet the demand. In 2005, Iredell, Randolph and Alleghany were the state's top three dairy counties, although all three lost hundreds of dairy cows last year as farm numbers continued to drop.

There is Tally's in Dilworth. All Organic. http://www.talleys.com/

I have not been to one but there are several Butchers that cater to the Latin market on the east and south sides of town. You may or may not find what you are looking for there.

This is helpful and unfortunately disappointing info. We love having milk delivered, old fashioned glass bottles, etc. I am encouraged that I may be able to get to a butcher however. Thanks all for the input.
