New Meat Market in the Neighborhood

Remington-Lott Farms opened a Meat Market in the strip mall in front of the Flowood Wal-Mart (where Papa Johns, Hobby Town and Anytime Fitness are). According to their website:
      Remington-Lott Farms is a family owned business located in Canton, Mississippi. . . . Our beef are grass fed and grain finished, with no hormones. That means they graze and eat hay grown locally, being finished on grain while still living on the pasture.
       Our beef is dry-aged for a minimum of 14 days to maximize flavor and the tenderness of our beef.  Dry aging changes beef by allowing moisture to evaporate from the muscle, making it more tender and resulting in a more flavorful taste.  Due to the expensive nature of this process, this type of beef is normally only served in high-end steakhouses and restaurants.  Most beef found in the grocery store has been wet-aged which is a much quicker and cheaper process.  Wet-aged is normally completed within the first few days, there is little to no moisture loss, which leads to a higher weight and higher value at the market, at the expense of less flavor.
     . . . Unlike the grocery who buys third-party and is focused on buying cheaply and moving large quantities at big margins, WE ARE THE PRODUCER - our focus is on one product: beef, and producing it in a healthy, quality manner.  What does that mean?  It means we have control over the entire process "from conception to consumption" and can provide the highest quality to you without making it cost-prohibitive.
They sell at the City of Madison's Farmer's Market, the Mississippi Farmer's Market, and they have another storefront in Gluckstadt. You can find them on Facebook, too.
