Meat Your Match: Fischer Farms & Chris Benedyk

Leading up to our Slow Meat 2 event on May 10, we’ll be placing the spotlight on the farmer chef pairings we’ve put together for this special event.

Our last feature is the pairing of Dave and Diana Fischer – the husband and wife team from Fischer Farms – and Chris Benedyk, half of the duo behind Love Handle with his wife Ally.

This won’t be the first partnership between the Fischers and the Benedyks. This relationship goes way back to Chris’ days slinging sandwiches at another Snail of Approval spot in town.

“We are excited to continue to work with Chris and Ally at Love Handle. Chris knows our product well from working with it for years at Goose the Market” said Dave. 

Chris is similarly fond of the Fischer Farm meat and the relationship he’s built with the couple who are dedicated to the southern Indiana farm that’s been in their family since the 1800s. “Dave and Di are wonderful and their product is fantastic. We are so happy to use Fischer Farms pork and beef at Love Handle,” Chris said.

Dave knows that Chris has the skill and experience to use his product well, “He definitely knows his meats and will do wonders with our brisket. It’s always a pleasure to work with chefs that really understand the difference in the quality of our meats and why we do what we do.”

And Chris? He’s excited to showcase the Fischer Farms brisket. “I’m stoked!”

Come talk to Dave & Diana Fischer about their farm and taste Chris’ handiwork at Slow Meat 2, May 10 6:30pm at Flat 12 Bierwerks & Smoking Goose Meatery.

Dave and Diana Fischer’s home farm has been in the family since Dave’s great grandfather bought the land from the sheriff after the civil war veteran who previously owned the land did not return.  Located in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, their farm is 750 acres all focused on producing top quality beef.

Their focus has been on producing top quality fresh, natural meats each and every week. This consistent supply has made them a farm-to-fork choice for many restaurants. The Fischers pride themselves on giving their customers excellent service.

Chris and his wife Ally run Love Handle, a local sandwich shop located on Indianapolis’ Near Eastside. Chris began his culinary career with Goose the Market, and opened the first incarnation of Love Handle in Milwaukee in 2012. A few years later they decided to return home to Indy, left Wisconsin and opened on East Tenth with an innovative menu that often features smoked brisket, pork belly, trotter brawn eggs, braised beef tongue and the best biscuits and gravy in town.
