Your Berkshire Pig Update, Part 2: McCall's Gets a 2nd Berkshire Pig
A. Scattergooddeconstructed Berkshire pig at McCall's
Recently we wrote about the magnificent Berkshire pig from ReRide Ranch that Nathan McCall and Karen Yoo had for sale -- or rather, bits of it -- at their Los Feliz butcher shop, McCall's Meat & Fish. Well, the response was so positive, one might even say overwhelming ("we were already sold out by noon"), that they're bringing in farmer Lefty Ayers' second pig. Start your cell phones and your grills and your smokers now, I guess. Turn the page for all the gory details. Well, if you consider parts of pigs gory details. Your Tim Burton joke here _______.
"We had amazing feedback with the first pig. We sold 1/2 of the second one to another customer and have pre-sold a few items of the next one. We are going to cut off pre-ordering at this point so more parts will be available for walk-ins," emailed McCall yesterday, saying that they'll post further updates on Twitter and Facebook. Lucky you.
