Where can I buy heart+lung in hartford, ct or springfield, ma area?

I want to make a German dish containing heart and lung. Does anyone know a butcher close to the mass/ct border that sells those?

  1. Have you tried Arnold's Meats in Chicopee? I dont specifically know that they have heart & lung... but if they don't, i'm sure they would be able to tell you who does have it...

      thanks. I called them they don't sell them and they think that lungs aren't being sold anywhere but at slaughterhouses. any other suggestions ?!

        oh man. We're talking about beef lung, right? Have you called Hatfield Beef Co? A little farther north, but worth a try...

        The only other thing I can think of is maybe some random international market would have something? Or you could try calling a slaughterhouse directly. Or a farm...

        But I did just find this:

        Old, but might be helpful.

            thanks ! will look into this. I guess I'll ask Hispanic and Asian grocery stores where they get them from

      2. Try New Boston Beef in Thompson CT. Their website advertises "select cuts available".

          thanks! They sell heart ! they referred me to a processing facility for the lung.

        2. We used to eat heart and lungs in sufrite when I was young. I read recently that because of air pollution, it is no longer legal to sell lungs. Last year at the Garlic Festival in Bethlehem, CT, I bought a bowl of sufrite, and I recall the lady telling me that they no longer put the lungs in.
