Last month I interviewed Scott Buer of Bolzano Artisan Meats. For those who are interested (and how could you not be interested in such a cool company) here is some news, updates, and events from Scott:
Bolzano Artisan Meats at Lombardi Food & Wine Experience

Join us and a ton of great local foodmakers, breweries, wineries and more at this outstanding fundraising event. Great foods for a great cause – all proceeds go to the Lombardi Cancer Clinics. You can win a Bolzano Artisan Meats gift box!
Our First Hereford Hog
Bolzano just got in it’s first Hereford Hog this week. We love Herefords for the same reason we love heirloom tomatoes – they grow slower, taste better, and are raised in small number by folks who care. There are less than 2,000 Herefords in the US, and the only way to preserve them is by eating them!
What’s more is that this means we have the entire hog to dry-cure now. We think this is a good starting point to explore the dry cured meats of Hungary, Austria, Spain, etc, and to invent some Wisconsin charcuterie all our own,to fit our local taste, climate and culture (what foodies call our “Terroir”). Dry-curing takes time, so it will take a while before these are ready, but we’ll keep you updated.
Winter Farmers Market Continues
Thanks to every single one of you who visited our booth at the first day of the Milwaukee County Winter Farmers Market. We pulled a 20-hour shift getting everything ready, but you made it worthwhile. (Especially you two who Early Reserved your whole Speck Prosciutto!)
Don’t forget the market continues until the end of April. See you this Saturday!
Milwaukee County Winter Farmers Market State Fair Park, Tommy Thompson Youth Center
Saturdays 8am-Noon, starting this Saturday, Nov. 7th.
Early Reserve Speck Prosciutto Available Online
Reserving your whole Speck Prosciutto is even easier than before with online ordering. Remember, you can always pool together with your friends, family, Slow Food group or cooking club and share in the whole Speck Prosciutto experience.
