Barb Fisher is the owner and operator of Barb’s Butchery, a butcher shop in Beacon, NY that sells nose-to-tail meats from local Hudson Valley farms. Everything at Barb’s is made on premises.
Staying local is important to Barb, who’s lived in Beacon for more than a decade. A career as a college math teacher brought Barb to the Hudson Valley and the Hudson Valley’s passion for supporting high quality locally sourced food will keep her here.
Barb’s Butchery sells grass-finished beef, pork, lamb and poultry, and everything—from the hot dogs to the jerky—is made in-house.
It may be surprising that someone with dual degrees in mathematics and no real experience in a commercial kitchen would become such a passionate butcher. But Barb loves making the products by hand and playing the mad scientist who finds creative ways to squeeze familiar favorites like pot pie and loaded baked potato into sausages.
