SFP's Laptop Butchershop celebrates twelve years of connecting Pittsburgh with organic and/or carefully-raised local meats and poultry. Animals are pastured, meaning they are raised outdoors on grass, the way nature intended. Some animals are fed grains, also carefully raised. The meat is exceptionally delicious and heart-healthy, rich in correctly balanced CLA's/nutrients. These products contain no additives, no antibiotics and no hormones. Many vendors allow you to pick the cuts and quantity you want--just like a real butchershop. Please understand: our producers work on a very small scale--this is why we love them! But, they must sell the whole animal, not just steaks, loins and chops so try roasts and ground meat.

Old Time Farm -Shelly Oswald, Stoneboro, PA
Old Time Farm breeds and raises Partridge Chantecler chickens, Standard Bronze turkeys and American Milking Devon cattle - all recognized on the Slow Food "Ark of Taste". The Chantecler and American Milking Devon are recognized as being in "critical" need of conservation by the Livestock Conservancy while the Standard Bronze turkey has a "watch" status on the priority list. Your purchase assists in the conservation of these rare breeds along with the flavor and genetic diversity they provide.
 
Heritage poultry takes two times as long to reach market weight as commercial poultry. The longer production times mean increased nutrient density and depth of flavor - these are true Slow Foods. Also, heritage chicken processed at 22-26 weeks means more texture to the meat than summer birds processed at 16 weeks - bone-in pieces best cooked longer with low temp, slow cooking methods.  Excellent for rich broth.
 
Poultry are raised on pasture and supplemented with a nutrient dense, custom feed made with local non-GMO grains. USDA processed - you may notice some remnants of dark feathers as heritage birds can be more difficult to pluck.  All poultry is frozen.  All prices per pound.

SFP's Laptop Butchershop celebrates eleven years of connecting Pittsburgh with organic and/or carefully-raised local meats and poultry. Animals are pastured, meaning they are raised outdoors on grass, the way nature intended. Some animals are fed grains, also carefully raised. The meat is exceptionally delicious and heart-healthy, rich in correctly balanced CLA's/nutrients. These products contain no additives, no antibiotics and no hormones. Many vendors allow you to pick the cuts and quantity you want--just like a real butchershop. Please understand: our producers work on a very small scale--this is why we love them! But, they must sell the whole animal, not just steaks, loins and chops so try roasts, ground meat and unusual cuts which can yield delicious results.

These animals also take time to "grow out." A cow born today will be ready for butchering in two or more years; a pig in one year; heritage turkeys in nine months; chickens in three months.

CSAs, small butchers and farm markets have made local and carefully-raised meats much more accessible so Laptop Butchershop is now an occasional occurence.
