If you're the type of person who wants to eat local, then you have to love Twitter and HocoVittles -- who joined a recent Twitter conversation on the subject with a link to a 44-page pamphlet about Maryland meat producers.
The University of Maryland publishes the listing, which provides an animal-by-animal breakdown of farms. You get a few words about their methods and then contact information. The local joints include lamb, beef, pork, and more at Smallsville in Clarksville, Clark's Never Sell The Land Farm in Ellicott City and Woodcamp Farm and Wagon Wheel Ranch in Mt. Airy.
Does anyone know the Wagon Wheel Ranch? It is listed as selling all kinds of meat. The Web site suggests that you place an order in the spring, then wait until they raise and butcher the animal. Anyone done this?
(Update: Check out the comments, including a link to Eat Wild that includes more information.)
