Josh Hammond and Morgan Hammond are running the show over at Buster’s Liquors & Wines. And now, they’re bringing those good vibes to their new gig. Recognizing a community need, the duo envisioned a full-service meat and cheese butcher shop adjacent to their liquor store, Buster’s Butcher.

They’re teaming up with top-notch farms that do things the right way, showcasing their goods in-store. Their team of butchers, who also possess culinary expertise, not only provide valuable cooking guidance but they also treat you like an old friend when you stop by.

Partnering with Brad McCarley, the head butcher, has proven to be an incredible collaboration. He and his team bring a wealth of knowledge and experience, which Brad has meticulously built over the last 10 years in the butcher and restaurant industries. The depth of expertise they offer is a valuable asset to any project or venture they undertake.

They’re also not just about selling meat, they want to be your go-to for meal planning, saving you time in the kitchen, and giving you good-eats you can’t find anywhere else. With these considerations in mind, there truly is nothing like it in Memphis!
