At this newly opened vegan butcher shop in Minneapolis, you can find barbecue rib, pastrami and numerous cheese that savour like the real deal, as brother and sister Aubry and Kale Walch aim to repurpose the word butcher
In a newly opened butcher shop in north-east Minneapolis, clients can find hand-cut salami, Sriracha-flavored bratwursts, meatballs, and nearly any other cut of meat that comes to mind.
The only catch? Nothing in the store is made from an animal product. Everything at the Herbivorous Butcher is 100% vegan.
Two years ago, after learning about the environmental impact of eating meat from books and documentaries such as Forks Over Knives and Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, brother-sister duo Kale and Aubry Walch started constructing vegan meats and cheeses themselves.
The Walches soon took their products on the road, selling them at farmers marketplaces and breweries across the midwest, before returning to Minneapolis and opening the Herbivorous Butcher on 23 January. More than 5,000 patrons visited the shop on its opening weekend.
