If you haven’t visited Bucky’s Butchery on the UW-Madison campus you should. The selection and choices are endless. I especially like that it is a teaching butchery and all proceeds got back to education, research and extension activities. They sell every cut of meat and you can special order anything from a 1/2 of a cow to fresh lamb chops and pork sausage. I also like that they have farm fresh eggs too.
The butchery is located in the UW Meat Science and Muscle Biology Laboratory and is a part of the Meat Science program in the Department of Animal Sciences. The Meat Lab and Bucky’s Butchery is operated by about 10-15 undergraduates. These undergraduates gain valuable experience in many facets of the meat industry including cutting and processing meat as well as food safety, proper sanitation and product sales.
This past February they had a special offer for Valentine’s Day. It was a heart-shaped dry aged rib eye! I couldn’t pass this up as this would out do any other Valentine’s present I’ve ever given my husband. It was hands amazing! My husband couldn’t have been more excited to get a huge piece of heart-shaped beef!
Bucky’s Butchery is only open on Fridays from 11am-3pm!
