      2nd Joes - they process a lot of deer - and they are great people...

        Love Joe's!!!! Hans and Fritz are the best. We've been getting meat there for years, but just recently tried their lamb-- It was butchered so clean and the price was great.

          I understand why you wrote "you must call ahead," but I like to think that most people would at least hesitate before showing up at a butcher shop with a deer carcass tied to the roof of their car!

            Took a trip to Hendricks Farm in Telford and enroute saw two signs offering deer processing services. Not sure if that is what you need.

                i don't mean to take this post a bit off topic, but any recs for decent butchers or fish mongers outside of the city would be much appreciated. i'm in Manayunk/Roxborough and Superfresh doesn't keep me interested.

                  tfalbo...... i popped into the new Main Street Market in Manayunk last weekend. I was floored to see the quality of the butcher counter in the back. Since youre so local, stop in there.

                    I like the meat options in the C-Hill farmers market (not the top-of-the-hill produce place, but the one by the hotel). 3 separate places, but one place has good poultry, another good beef, pork and lamb, and a third has sausages, cold cuts, etc. Meat.

                      If you're in central bucks, Haring Brothers. Just north of Doylestown.
