On the way back to DC from a boondoggle to southern Virginia, my friend Liz and I stopped at Belmont Butchery in the Carytown section of Richmond. Tanya (left) and Henry Cauthen weren't in their shop when we passed by, but I got some great lard, artisan bacon and sausages. I don't think they ship lard, but this is a great resource if you live within a hour or two of Richmond. Make a day trip of visiting like we did. Learn more about the great butchery under Resources.
