Meat eaters, rejoice. There’s a new butcher shop coming to downtown Edmonds, with a focus on organic, grass fed and natural meats. The name of the shop is Bill the Butcher, and the company already has stores in several other Puget Sound cities, including Woodinville, Redmond, Bellevue and several Seattle neighborhoods.
The company works directly with local ranchers and farmers, who follow sustainable and organic practices, to deliver high-quality meat “that is healthiest for consumers while being good for the environment,” the company website says.
Bill the Butcher works with small farmers and ranchers “who treat animals humanely and share our belief that grass pastured meat is far healthier.” The meat comes from grass-fed animals that have been raised both locally and nearby in Wyoming, Montana and Oregon. In Washington, suppliers are located in Carnation, Arlington, Marysville, Mount Vernon, Lopez Island, Anacortes, Duval, Bow and Spanaway.
Some ranches are organic, while others follow organic standards but have chosen not to become certified. The latter meat, known as “Bill the Butcher Natural,” is raised without the use of growth hormones, antibiotics, steroids or genetically modified feed.
The shop, to be located at 4th and Main, is scheduled to open sometime this fall. We’ll keep you updated on their progress.
