April – Spring - Easter, Flowers, and Grass Fed Meats

(Now accepting Ham and Lamb orders for Easter) 
Welcome to April issue of The Butcher's Blog and our first issue in the official season of Spring.

 Even though it is April 1st as we publish this it is no joke that the weather is finally getting better.

This month we may or may not celebrate Easter, but either way, it is a great season to enjoy grass fed lamb.

Hams are also enjoyed at Easter and we are taking orders for your Easter or family plans. What about duck? Duck can also make an excellent meal and we have locally raised free range ducks for sale while they last.

Easter Ham or Lamb ?
Both of these meats are in demand for Easter and we suggest that you order early to secure your preference for quantity and quality. Our hams and lamb are the best available for free range, hormone free, and delicious in taste. We actually also sell locally grown eggs in case you want to make us your one stop Easter shoppe!

Here at Long’s we offer our own in house spiral cut and honey glaze ham on a pre-order basis (we run out of these fast – pre-order is best to make sure that you have one ready.) We also offer the leg of lamb, and rack of lamb, and our lamb crown roasts are starting to get popular. Base pricing: $6.98/lb. bone in for lamb leg and $4.49/lb for bone in ham.

Ukranian Hand Painted Easter Eggs- A pysanka (Ukrainian: писанка, plural: pysanky) is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax. The word pysanka refers specifically to an egg decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs, and is not a generic term for any egg decorated using wax resist.
