Thanks to the Mountain Xpress for featuring Foothills Meats in their latest article, "A bacon lover's guide to Asheville." It's no secret that bacon is one of our favorites among the staff, and we love offering beef and pork bacon to our customers at our Butcher Bar & Kitchen, food truck and through the Meat CSA program.
Read an excerpt:
Admit it. I had you at bacon, didn’t I? Bacon is just one of those things that many find difficult to pass up. I once met a “vegetarian” who said, “I don’t eat meat, but I do eat bacon.” Huh? That’s just how good it is. And, it’s not just about traditional-style pork anymore. This savory siren seduces in many forms.
At Foothills Meats, owner Casey McKissick says his staff makes both pork and beef bacon every week from the whole animals they take into the butcher shop. The beef comes from AH&W Family Farm, a multigenerational farm in Wilkes County, and the pork comes from Vandele Farm in Lake Lure and Wild Turkey Farms in Rowan County.
