And now we know who the buyers are: Kate Kavanaugh, and her partner, Josh Curtiss. "We've been training in New York with Joshua Applestone and his team at Fleisher's Grass-Fed and Organic Meats, and we're ready to bring our knowledge and craft to the Denver market," says Kavanaugh.
The space, now called Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe, she adds, is a "whole animal, nose-to-tail butcher shop." To that end, the partners will sell antibiotic- and hormone-free beef, lamb, pork and chicken, all of which will be raised within 200 miles of Denver. "As whole animal butchers, we'll be utilizing the entire animal, making things like stocks, deli meats, rendered fats and in-house fresh sausages," says Kate, noting, too, that the store will offer locally-sourced dry goods, dairy products and rotisserie chickens.
The duo expects to open Western Daughters in early summer.
