I visited the incredible Dick the Butcher (and rancher/welder/etc) of Joshua Tree yesterday. [He’s pictured above, photo by Stacy Kranitz.]
He says he’s in process of closing up shop.
Can’t find anyone to do butchering with him—he can’t do it himself anymore, not with the emphysema — but he can train, supervise and pay very well someone who’s willing and enthusiastic.
There’s still time for this to happen. Let’s find somebody.
Dick is a one-of-a-kind resource, with a lot left to give in terms of practical guidance/tools and full shop/wisdom/experience/customer base/etc.
