Does anyone know of a locale that sells cruelty-free foie gras (perhaps a local farm?) near Charlotte, NC?

Thanks!

    It's not local, but it's worth a shot.

      Thanks for the link, Pete, but these folks use gavage.

        Julie, I would suggest you contact Natalie or Cassie at Grateful Growers Farm. They raise ducks (not sure about geese) and I know they occasionally produce pâté. I doubt they have foie gras, but they may be able to point you in the right direction. They are great folks and are a wealth of local food information. www.ggfarm.com

          Thank you!! I've actually heard of Grateful Growers and called them about buying lard awhile back (for pie crusts) but they didn't return my call. It was a busy time, though (Thanksgiving!), so maybe I'll try back.

            They are never around a phone, would be my guess. What with running the farm, all the farmers markets they sell at and their Harvest Moon food truck they are very busy. But they do answer emails. Try emailing them.

              You're probably right! I'll give it a try.

      Folks, please help us keep this board focused on finding local chow. If you have suggestions you think would meet julieruble's criteria, please do offer them here, but discussion of the validity of that criteria is off topic for this board. Thanks.
