In addition to having the kindest folks behind the counter, this place is the best place in Southwest Michigan to get your local, sustainable, and ethical meat, produce, snacks, etc. My wife and I have traveled to many cities and towns, and never have we found a place that cares as much as Pat & Ellie about where their food...

The title says it all. There are so many choices that can be made. Some items were frozen but most are fresh. They even cut our stakes right there as we watched. Many different types of sausage in addition to the cuts of meet. Could have been the time of year but a lot of organic and local produce also.... More

Ellie and Pat are excellent hosts in the culinary adventure at LOCAL. They make all kinds of amazing sausages (my favorite is probably the African sausage) and also sell locally raised meats of all kinds. Seriously, you're in New Buffalo, and you can buy duck confit here. They bring in beautiful cheeses, fresh produce, and all kinds of other locally... More

Because we were on the road with not much time to spare, we could not do justice to the lovely assortment of locally grown/raised produce/meats…but we had heard about their legendary bacon maple jam and brought home several jars. Fragrant, amazing addition to sandwiches/brussels sprouts and hmmm how about straight out of the jar??

Pat and Ellie Mullins are artisanal meat purveyors in the heart of Harbor Country - just off I-94 exit 1 in New Buffalo, Michigan. They smoke their own products (don't miss the duck "ham," bacon or rib eye), search for small and sustainable farmers to supply them and give their customers service at a 110% level every time. Ellie spent... More

We've been to Local twice now on excursions to the New Buffalo/Three Oaks area. We find them to be outstanding for recommendations and information on their meat selections. They pack everything beautifully for our trip back to Chicago. We put it in our cooler and it arrives pristine. We've tried cheeses they offer as well and find the whole experience... More
