The Fletcherizer
East Aurora Rotary Meeting
June 19, 2018
 
Tom Moriarty, Moriarty Meats was todays guest speaker. Moriarty Meats is located at 23 Grant Street and is currently only open on Saturdays. Tom started the business in January 2018 after many years of studying whole animal butchery. After attending college, Tom attended culinary school in Spain while teaching English. After 2 years there, he came back to the states and worked on a farm in Maine selling dry aged meats to the New England area. Intrigued and wanting to learn more, Tom went abroad to France and apprenticed in butchery for two final years. Finally making his way back to the Buffalo area, Tom worked for Sysco Food Distributors and Schneider Sea Food & Meats. Tom now works for Southern Tier Wine & Spirits. Eventually, his hope is to open the butchery full time once his family has grown.
