Nick DeLauri, owner of Vermont Butcher Shop, shows off a piece of pork from Amlaw Family farm of West Swanzey, NH, he just butchered at the business' new Rutland location Wednesday, October 12, 2017. DeLauri, who tries to supply his stores with regional meat, says he's noticed a quality difference, citing that smaller scale farming operations tend to produce marbled pork, which is a term to describe the appearance of intramuscular fats that produce a marble patter and give it more flavor.
