Vaughn Good opened Hank Charcuterie just over a week ago at 1900 Massachusetts St. The shop — specializing in charcuterie products made from Kansas-raised animals that are butchered in-house — offers meats including lamb, goat, duck, chicken and pork. Hank also offers daily sandwich specials.

In a land where “processed meat” is synonymous with yellow plastic-clad bologna in a giant supermarket, the version at Hank Charcuterie may surprise. Lamb sausage, chorizo, duck liver pate, ham hock rillette and hand-cut bacon fill Hank’s meat counter. Each is processed by hand within eyeshot of the cash register, from butchering a whole animal to packaging the products made from it — all of it. By Sara Shepherd
