About 20 years ago, Sigel says, things started to change. Today, the rail and sawdust are gone from the back room at Fairway Beef. Another box will be all tenderloins. This means a butcher, if so inclined, can buy a steak from a packing house, open the package and just put it out for sale as is. I have him source animals from western Massachusetts and then finish them on his property. He has difficulty getting local pork, which he says is usually just too lean to be a quality product.

But finding all types of local meat can be challenging. Animals raised throughout the Northeast are purchased at auction and then slaughtered in Athol. Raising an animal to prime means more feeding, more caring and more waiting. His plan is to bring in whole animals, including some heritage breeds, sourced from within miles of Boston to break down in full view of his customers.

At Well Foods, for example, a recent Saturday scouting trip turned up cow feet and stomachs; goat heads, feet and livers; and a full array of bone-in and boneless cuts from both animals. The downside is that there are far fewer of the most popular cuts.

Just as how an animal was bred, raised and slaughtered plays a huge part in how it tastes, so too do does the skill a meat cutter brings to the table. You want a braised meat to fall apart only when you put a knife to it, he says.

Large industrial grinders have the capability to process larger portions of meat, sinew and cartilage, says Dulock. To stay in business, local butcher shops have pursued divergent paths to profitability—to the point where they often no longer resemble the shops of the past, nor each other. Some have chosen to offer convenience foods and value-added products.

The primary quality the diverse butcher shops seem to share is a personal connection with their customers. All-natural or natural This is misleading: However, veteran butcher Vadim Akimenko notes that some local farms meet or exceed the organic standards but cannot afford to pay for the certification.

Animals cannot have been fed grain or grain byproducts and must have had continuous access to pasture during the growing season. Pasture-raised This term sounds closest to what many consumers may want for their meat animals, but there is currently no formal standard for meat labeled as pasture-raised. Talk to your butcher if you want to know if the meat you are buying came from animals that grazed freely outdoors on grass—which is likely only the case if he or she has made a considerable effort to source such products.

A processing plant may choose to pay to have its meat graded; the two USDA slaughterhouses in Massachusetts and the one in New Hampshire do not have their meat graded. Prime meat has more marbling white flecks of fat within the meat muscleso it is the most tender, flavorful and juicy grade; only about 2 percent of graded beef qualifies as prime. Other USDA-graded meat sold at the retail level includes choice, select and good for lamb.

Retail stores may use other terms, but these must be different from the USDA grades. A local animal could possibly grade as prime, notes Dulock, but it is unlikely unless the animal was consuming copious amounts of grain. Heritage This meat and poultry is from rare and endangered breeds that typically went out of favor for not being as prolific breeders or not as quick to gain weight as other animals that ultimately became widely raised in commercial agriculture.

There are no government standards for this label. Heritage meats help preserve biodiversity, and its proponents argue that it tastes better think heirloom tomatoes. It is has been trendy lately for local media to cover backyard layers, and reporters routinely cite that the state has no idea how many chickens there are in the state. That is just not true! Raising Livestock As the eat-local movement grows, newbie farmers head to school to learn their ABCs By Genevieve Rajewski Tufts Veterinary Medicine, Winter print story Twenty-five people clutching notebooks eagerly crowd into the deep shade of a farm shed, where Scott Brundage is demonstrating a judo-like maneuver that will set a sheep on its rump.

On this sunny fall afternoon, his students are participating in Sheep School, one in a series of Livestock Field Schools. Turn her head away from you until she is really leaning into your right leg.

Now take that leg away! After a few attempts that result in the sheep circling around him, Patrick McQuade, a registered nurse from Rutland, Mass. McQuade discovered Sheep School while surfing for information on how to care for some Wensleydale lambs he had purchased.

So far, I love it. These backyard farmers usually start off knowing next to nothing about animal husbandry—which is why, for the last two years, the Cummings School has offered the field schools through the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, a nonprofit training program for newbie farmers run by the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts and Community Teamwork, a nonprofit in Lowell, Mass.

Sheep Sense Sheep tipping works because the animals possess natural defense mechanisms against predators. Standing out from the herd, say by looking lethargic or thin, attracts the unwanted attention of predators.

So sheep evolved to blend in by not betraying any signs of discomfort or disease. Consider, for example, the barber pole worm. This microscopic stomach parasite can drain a sheep of a deadly amount of blood before causing any overt symptoms, even as the animal suffers from severe anemia.

Delgado-Lecaroz then leads the students in comparing sheep eyelids against the take-home color charts to look for the paler reds that indicate anemia. The state has yet to notice an increase in the number of people raising other livestock, including pigs, cattle and sheep. The people who were ahead of the curve and keeping poultry years ago may now be moving into sheep, goats and other production animals. We certainly have heard from more people who are interested in learning how to butcher four-legged animals for personal consumption, and they may already be raising meat animals.

Department of Agriculture, sheep might be the livestock animal best-suited for a revival in Massachusetts. After searching for other organizations offering startup training in livestock production, Hashley discovered that such educational opportunities did not exist in Massachusetts and were rare elsewhere in New England.

The ancestry of the Standish family reaches back to a very early period in English history. The first of the name was Thurston de Standish, who was living in He had a son Ralph, who had a son Hugh. Inon account of differences in religious views, one being Catholic, the other Protestant, the estate was divided: Titled nobility came into the family in the following manner: For this act he was knighted.

This baronetcy, which was established inbecame extinct in He was born about and died at Duxbury, MA. He inherited in a pre-eminent degree the military qualities of his ancestors. Without him, New England for a generation or two would have remained a wilderness and that little Plymouth colony would have become extinct. She died in about a month after landing at Plymouth. According to tradition, his second wife was Barbara, a sister to Rose.

By this second marriage there were seven children. For his first wife, Alexander married Sarah, daughter of John Alden. His second wife was Desire Sherman Doty, by whom he had four children. Their eldest child was Thomas, who married Mary Carver. Thomas had six children, the third birth being a son whose name was Thomas, the great-grandfather of John Van Ness. This second Thomas married Martah Bisbee and had two sons, one of whom was named Hadley. Hadley married Abigail Gardner and became the father of eleven children.

They had six children, the fourth birth being John Van Ness. He was not born in affluence, and consequently, has been obliged to depend upon his own exertions in the great contest of life.

He received the rudiments of his education in the common schools of his native town. From these, he passed into private schools, in which he spent several terms. He next became a student, for several years, in an academy at Lebanon, New Hampshire, which would vie in thoroughness and scholarship with many of the colleges of today.

Having finished here the entire course of mathematics save the Calculus, and being thoroughly prepared, he matriculated in Norwich University inand graduated as salutatorian of his class July 7, While in college, he was regarded as a most excellent scholar, and in mathematics, the leader of his class. To meet his expenses during these years of study, he taught school winters, commencing at the age of sixteen, and worked on the farm summers. He made study a business, squandered no time, and had but little leisure for recreation or games.

After leaving college, he taught a select school in Perkinsville, Vermont, and when this was closed, he became principal of a graded school in the same village. Not satisfied with the prospects in his native State, he resolved to seek his fortunes in the west. In the fall ofhe went to western New York and taught in the graded schools of Farmington, Bergen, Macedon, and Victor, until he was called to the Professorship of Mathematics and Astronomy in Lombard University.

Kendall, a classmate, was its president, and the letter of invitation sent by him to Dr. Standish contained the following: I want you to take charge while I collect money. Standish arrived in Galesburg, and on the following day, he entered upon his duties as Acting President and Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy.

He was Acting President for three years, and the institution prospered greatly under his management. From toa period of thirty-eight years, he held his professorship. Nor was he confined to his own department. For seven or eight years, he taught the natural sciences, and if any new branch of study was introduced, Dr. Standish was elected as the teacher. Inhe was elected President of Lombard University, resigning in June, For the first seven months, he canvassed for funds, and raised by subscription forty-one thousand five hundred dollars—a larger amount than was ever raised in so short a time by any other man working in the interest of the University.

The catalogues will show that during his administration, the patronage gradually increased.

Standish performed signal service for the college outside of his professorship. He planned the cabinet cases and, with the aid of Mrs. Standish, raised the money to pay for them.

He raised the money and purchased the Cabinet of Corals. He obtained the Cowan collection. He secured the means to build the bookcases. He arranged and planned the shrubbery on the college campus. Standish had but few equals. He was original in his illustrations and methods, and cared little for the opinion of men as written in books.

He was a law unto himself, and his teaching was neither by book nor by rote. He was clear, incisive, and never allowed the dullest student to pass from him without a full comprehension of the subject. Clark, a graduate of Lombard University ina Professor and President of Bennett Medical College in Chicago for more than a quarter century, and a member of the State Board of Health for as long a period, pays him the following tribute: With the subject so completely in hand himself, it was always a wonder, how for the benefit of some dull pupil he could go over a mathematical demonstration again, again and again, without the slightest appearance of impatience.

And to those observing this conflict between light and darkness, it was especially pleasing to note the kindly light of interest and satisfaction which would pass over his countenance when at last he saw that he had won, and that the problem was comprehended. He made such victories a life-work and acknowledged no defeat.

Carpenter, whose pastorate is at Rockland, Ohio, and who graduated at the University insays: Standish was an ideal instructor. He was a man of leading characteristics, original, positive in his convictions, clear-sighted, and always worked with a definite and good object before him.

He was a growing teacher, always bringing forth some new view of the truth.

  • Dean’s List, Fall 2008

Those who have been students of Dr. Standish are always grateful for the privilege of sitting at the feet of one of the best instructors that his country ever produced.

He would carry his pupils up to the heights and give them a view of the promised land just beyond. But when once on the heights, no true student ever came down to his old position. Braucher, a civil engineer and surveyor, and one of the best mathematicians ever connected with the University, gives him impressions in the following words: He seemed more like a sympathetic companion than teacher, while we were delving for the hidden truths of higher mathematics.
