A Little Bit of Italy in Ocean Isle Beach, NC – The Butcher of Brunswick

I am always looking for specialty stores that stock fine ingredients from local farmers and this shop was no exception … The Butcher of Brunswick in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Not to mention fresh-baked bread from New York, along with freshly ground meats.  They will even butcher any cut of meat to your desired needs.  I spent a few hours with owner, Kevin Fahy, earlier this year to learn more about this business and what they offer to the locals.  To read my story and see photographs, click here:  The Butcher of Brunswick

The Butcher of Brunswick is located at 5850 Ocean Highway W., Ocean Isle Beach, NC; (910) 287-6999

Don’t forget to pick up a loaf of fresh bread … it was in my cart the minute I walked into the store.

Be sure to click on the link above the article to read it in its entirety, or pick up a copy of the South Brunswick Magazine at local grocery stores or shops in South Brunswick County.  It’s good reading.

106 Miles – 8 Towns – 1 Saturday … Join me for a “Coastal Road Trip”

One of the joys of moving to a new town is “seeing” what makes a town unique.  Two years ago my sister and I moved to Southport (North Carolina) and now call it home.  After we settled in, we would take to the road to visit the neighboring towns.  Even though we had already traveled to these towns, I decided I wanted to “see” what maybe I had missed on our earlier road trips.  On a beautiful, sunny day last March, we set out for our “Coastal Road Trip.”  This journey was  documented through my photographs along with a short story.  My “Coastal Road Trip” was just published in the South Brunswick Magazine-Spring 2017 issue, Pages 77-84 and can be found in local grocery stores and drug stores in Brunswick County, North Carolina, for the next three months.  Be sure to pick up a copy, or you can read it here.  Ah, the joys of a good road trip!  Hope to see you on the road. ~ Barbara
