On a typical day at Bolyard's Meat & Provisions (2810 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-647-2567), chef Chris Bolyard wields a sharp boning knife from a trusty chain-link utility belt armed with additional tools of the trade. He skillfully breaks down a cut of grass-fed beef from Double B Ranch out of Perryville, one of the many local farms he sources for pasture-raised animals. Meanwhile, elsewhere in his new full-service butcher shop his staff preps sausage, braunschweiger and stocks from scratch. Bolyard's busy storefront opened on November 28 and offers all that and more in Maplewood.

As reported by Gut Check in February, Bolyard left a decade-long stint at Sidney Street Cafe to pursue a whole-animal butcher shop concept. Therein, all the products offered are sourced from Midwestern farms. Options include pork, chicken, lamb and beef, and every part of the humanely raised animals is utilized. Choose from choice cuts or ask an expert behind the counter for tips on how to try out something new. Additional items for sale created with byproducts include everything from dog treats to beef-tallow soaps and balms.
