What is the Larder?

Historically, the larder was a food storage area nearest the kitchen. Before the use of refrigerators, this room would be kept cool with blocks of ice. Tile walls and fine mesh over window openings kept the space clean and free from flies, important as there could be any number of animal parts hanging from the ceiling aging and curing.

For our modern day use of the term, the Larder refers to our retail area, centered around a full-service butcher shop. While fresh cuts of meat and house-made sausages are the most prominent, the Larder also offers our house-made pastas, ready-to-eat items, wine and breads. To-go orders will be picked up at the Larder counter.
