-->Michael Sullivan--> is the Charcutier (or Butcher) at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. He attended the Culinary Institute of America while working full-time at restaurants, then apprenticed himself to sausage makers. He has worked in the kitchens at Blackberry Farm since 2004, and in their meat curing program since 2007. ?I am all about heritage, tradition; I go back into time rather than forward to learn," he says. "I butcher every ounce that I use. It is my responsibility. I hand tie my sausages with hemp in the old Italian way; it grips the casing better. I mix my meats with my hands in order to put a little touch of myself with it, so that people taste the human touch, not some cold, stainless steel machine.
