A guest blog by Kyle Morse--the Mayor of Meats! (And one of our fabulous FLF&LR producers.)
Now I’m sure you’re wondering - how is this man so handsome AND talented? And look, I agree with you. BUT the real reason for this post is to tell you more about myself, my business, and how I got the inspiration for my name. Let’s meet The Mayor!
My name is Kyle Morse and I am the founder of The Mayor Meats. I started training at Ball State University in the food management program, and moved on to the Culinary Institute of America where I graduated with honors in 2009. I was fortunate to spend over 10 years in New York City, gaining experience working in Michelin Star Restaurants and for celebrity clients. In 2018 we decided to move to Virginia, and I also had my firstborn, Sam.
The Mayor is known for its innovative seasonal flavors, like this Broccoli Raab & Swiss.
When my son was born, I began to conceptualize a sausage/meat company and decided to really own a name that had been a tradition in my family. ‘Mayor’ spans generations and continents; originally my grandmother’s maiden name, it has been kept alive and passed down through the years. It may be a small thing, but seeing that name now used for my business is a continuous reassurance that I am right where I’m supposed to be and still firmly rooted with what is most important to me.
Speaking of innovative, Morse's Redeye Sausage is featured this weekend (June 18-21, 2021).
We always aim to bring you the most quality products, and will never stray from that. Our small batch sausages are made using sustainable, locally sourced Virginia meats. Utilizing whole animal butchery techniques, we create both traditional styles as well as unique, chef-driven seasonal flavors. We feel fortunate for the support we have gotten so far and know that this is only the beginning!
Morse's popular Bratwurst is a hit on Fall Line Farms and Local Roots!
