Description: The Roving Butcher was founded because nose-to-tail butcher Jake Levin saw that there is a lot of high quality pastured animals being raised in the Berkshires, Hudson Valley, and the Pioneer Valley. There is also a lot of enthusiasm and desire on the part of farmers, chefs, and homesteaders to get those animals onto their plate.
