I have had the pleasure of being a chef in the Southeast my entire twenty year career. I have also had a great relationship with Southern Foods in Greensboro, NC. When I lived in Greensboro, I would drive my truck right up to the pick-up window and get my daily supplies for the restaurant. Now days, they deliver to me every week here on the Blue Ridge. I depend on them for much of most of my seafood, meats, and specialty items. There really is no other company like Southern Foods.
My rep, Matt French, lets me know about what fish we can get off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina each week. Last week it was Spanish Mackerel, this week it may be littleneck clams or grouper. One thing is for sure, it will be fresh and tasty. I also get my Angus tenderloin, Angus hot dogs, and hamburger from Southern. This is the best meat you can buy, in my opinion. You can really taste the quality when you sink your teeth into one of our famous Tavern burgers. That delicious applewood bacon and Irish porter cheddar on our burger also comes from Southern. The cheeses they carry will make your head spin. I could spend a month talking about their cheese selections and still not give it justice. Most of these cheeses you can’t find within a hundred mile radius of this area. Many of my customers order their cheese through me so that they can enjoy them at home. I am always happy to help if you need any specialty cheeses brought in to Olde Mill.
