 The Westover Market Butcher Shop is proud to provide local, pasture raised, "beyond organic" meats raised without any extra hormones or antibiotics to our customers.  All animals are raised humanely on small family farms throughout Virginia and Maryland.  The Westover Market Butcher Shop is commited to practices that are good for the farmer, the animal, the consumer, and the environment. Beyond the facts that our meats are healthier, more humane, and support the local economy, they honestly just taste better. Come see for yourself!

 The Westover Market Butcher Shop is also a full-service butcher shop specializing in doing custom-cuts and meat preparation. Are you looking for a whole suckling pig or a lamb to roast, or a pork shoulder or a brisket for the smoker? Are you trying to find a special cut of pork to make that one dish you had that one time in Germany, or do you need a batch of special sausages? How about a custom-ground burger blend for the homecoming tailgate? If so, we can help. With enough notice, we can get almost anything you might need, from whole pigs to exotic game (camel burgers, anyone?).To ensure that we can get you exactly what you need, please be sure to order ahead.



So, it looks like that miserable winter is just about done, and it's time to look forward to Spring! Easter is coming up soon, and that means it's time for spring lamb! If you'd like a leg or a shoulder for your table, let us know so that we can have one ready for you. We also can get some really nice boneless sugar-cured hams as well, if that strikes your fancy. Let us know what you need!



The weather is warming up, so get those grills hot!

Our market offers everything you need to throw a killer barbecue, from the meat (everything fom alligator to yak [no zebra yet!]), beer (about 1,300 flavors in bottles, and kegs available by pre-order), fresh-baked buns from Lyon Bakery, and an excellent assortment of rubs, sauces (including a new line of excellent sauces from Rodney's Sweet Pig), and other seasonings to kick up the flavor on whatever you decide to put on the coals (we've got your charcoal, too).



We are now offering fresh seafood, because you can't eat a steak every day.

After a recent fishing trip, we decided, "Hey, we should sell some of this stuff, too!" So, now we're offering a selection of very fine, very fresh seafood to our customers, with the same kind of commitment to sustainability and responsible practices that we follow with our other products. In keeping with this, we strive to offer only seafood certified "Best Choice" or "Good Alternative" by the Monterrey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program.

Right now, we're offering Verlasso Atlantic salmon, mahi mahi, Yellowfin tuna, scallops, and whatever else looks good and fresh. If there's anything else you'd like to see in the seafood case (just to the right of the butcher's case), please let us know! We can also do special orders for just about anything that swims, in just about any quantity or style of preparation, with just a couple of days notice. If you like oysters (like we do), we can also help you out with cases of some of the finest and tastiest to be had.




We can help. Contact us for current pricing on whole pigs ranging from about 20 lbs. to over 400lbs. We have lots of options for those looking to throw a proper pig-pickin', and technical advice is freely given, though not guaranteed to be accurate (except for the beer-drinking part - we're pretty certain about that).

We like to have two weeks lead-time for these orders, which helps us to give you the widest range of options and best pricing for your needs. If you need your pig sooner than that (I mean, we get it - barbeques, planning ahead....) we will do our best, but might not have as much to offer.



 Feeling a bit adventurous? We have just the thing for you in our freezer section! Located in Aisle 3 near the other icy items, we now have a great little selection of game and more exotic offerings. In there now are ducks, duck breasts, foie gras, rabbits, venison, elk, alligator andouille sausages (and a ton of others), pates, mousses, and a all kinds of fun things to try out! Tired of the same old beef, pork, chicken routine? Try Kangaroo!





 The Westover Market Butcher Shop offers beef from Roseda Farm (www.rosedabeef.com). Some of you may be familiar with Roseda already - they have a great reputation for their angus beef raised at their Monktown, MD farm and at other affiliated farms in the Mid-Atlantic region. Roseda's cattle are raised on pasture, and eat grass for the majority of their lives, and then are finished on silage and spent grains from the Troegs and Heavy Seas breweries, and their beef is then dry-aged for at least three weeks before we get it. Come by and taste a great piece of beef from a great local producer! These steaks are special.



 We are happy to be partnering with EcoFriendly Foods (http://ecofriendly.com/) to provide top-notch pork that is among the best in the world. We also use this pork to make our own special bacons. EcoFriendly Foods is a regular presence at DC area farmers markets, and also provides their extraordinary products to many of the best restaurants in the Washington area and in New York. The founder and president of EcoFriendly, Bev Eggleston, has been recognized nationally as one of the greatest forces for good in small agriculture. Come taste some pork that will make you change the way you think about pigs!



 We get our poultry (chickens and turkeys) from Fields of Athenry Farm (http://fieldsofathenryfarm.com/) in Purcellville, VA. They raise many of the animals there on their own farm, and partner with other like-minded farmers in the region to provide us with some of the tastiest birds available. Farm owner Elaine Boland is entirely committed to natural farming and to raising the best animals on pasture and without any hormones or antibiotics. Fields of Athenry also provides most of the lamb that we sell - their own cross between Dorset and Suffolk sheep - and it is delicious!

 Planning ahead for the Holidays? We are happy to offer heritage breed Bronze turkeys from Fields of Athenry to make your turkey memorable. The flavor of these birds is extraordinary. Call us or come by to reserve one today!



 Are you looking for something a little more unusual? Something special for a tasting party, or an adventurous Saturday dinner? We are working with Fossil Farms (http://fossilfarms.com/) to provide a VERY extensive list of exotic meats and game from around the country and around the world. While few of these animals are raised locally, Fossil Farms shares our commitment to providing high-quality meats free of hormones, medications, and preservatives. Bison? Wild boar? Kangaroo? Venison? Yak? Pheasant? Burmese python filets? We can get it for you, and we might even have some already in stock in our freezer section.
