Meet your Meat: Deck Family Farm’s new Artisan Series
We are pleased to introduce you to our newest lineup of hand-crafted meat products designed especially for Deck Family Farm by local artisan chef Brad Burnheimer of Burnheimer Meat Co. (BMC).
Brad has taken his passion for locally-sourced, high-quality meats and created our Artisan Series of fresh sausages and patés along with cured salami, whole muscles, bacons and more. Please join us as we explore the parameters of the palate with these, small-batch delights. We are working together to produce the best locally sourced (from forage to finish) meat products available.
We strive for simple elegance—embracing traditional flavors that let the meat speak for itself. As with all forms of artistry it is a balance and the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, please try these products and let us know how what you think. We appreciate your patience while we wait for our Salami and Coppa to finish curing, and as we develop our packaging and labeling. It will be worth the wait.
