ISO: Veal bones (cheap or free?) Brookline/Chestnut Hill

My butcher in Toronto used to give them to me for free, I'm looking to buy some veal bones to make a batch of veal stock but can't seem to find someone who sells them.

  1. At their cost these days, I can't imagine anyone giving them away for free. Stop and Shop carries them from time to time. If you call John Dewar in either newton or wellesley, I am sure they either have some on hand frozen or can get some in for your rather quickly.

    1. Try contacting one of the meat CSAs in the area, or maybe Blood Farm. My meat CSA (Chestnut Farm) gives its members access to offal, bones, and the like at very reasonable prices. Also, it has been a long time since I was there, but in the past I have gotten veal bones at Hilltop Meat Market up in Saugus. They were not expensive. You could try calling them too.

      1. This topic comes up from time to time. They can be tricky to find, but these older threads might be of some help.
