Proper Meats + Provisions: All-Local Farm-Raised Butchery to Open in Flagstaff, Tucson

It'll be bit of a trek for Valley food lovers, but that doesn't mean a trip to Proper Meats + Provisons in Flagstaff and later Tucson won't be worthwhile.

The butchery and deli claims to be the state's first butcher shop offering "100% Arizona farm­ raised meats." Owner Paul Moir says having locations in both southern and northern Arizona will help Proper Meats create much-needed infrastructure for the local meat market, as well help bring back the lost art of butchery.

"It's a craft that died out," Moir says. "But it's coming back."

The project is the latest to come from Moir his wife, Laura , who also own Brix and Criollo Latin Kitchen in Flagstaff and Proper in Tucson. The plan is to open an outlet of Proper Meats in Flagstaff within the next two months and a second Tucson shop by the end of the year.
