WISCONSIN — Eight years ago when Jonny Hunter wanted to study butchery, there wasn't much information available. Now, he's a master. Hunter, along with his partners at the Underground Food Collective in Wisconsin, is sharing that knowledge by creating "an open-source document that they hope will smooth the way for fellow salami producers to become USDA-certified meat processors."
