justinJustin and Katie Meddis were trying to plan how they could have their careers, see each other and help make a difference. Justin is a chef and butcher, and Katie a pastry chef. They decided to combine forces and open a meat & sweet shop. Thus, the concept of Rose’s was born.

The idea grew and grew until they decided to move to Durham. Upon arrival, they hit the ground running. Visiting farms, doing pop-up dinners, farmers market demos, butchery classes, testing recipes, all the while researching local meat and other ingredients.

Justin and Katie are passionate about working with and selling high quality, local, pasture raised meats and using local, sustainable ingredients.


We work with local farms to source the freshest meat and butcher it in-house. All animals are pasture-raised.

Call ahead for today’s selection of pastries and sweets!

Holiday Ordering

Thanksgiving Turkeys

Rainbow Meadow Farms is raising Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys for us on their farm in Snow Hill.  They are an old slow-growing (these birds have been on the ground since June!) American breed of turkey that are being brought back for its excellent flavor and beautiful appearance.  This is an excellent chance to put a truly unique and flavorful bird on you holiday table!

Ashley Farms is supplying us with Free Range turkeys as well.  While not a heritage breed these birds are raised to our same standards and will provide a good lower cost option. 

Holiday Hams!

We offer three types of ham for the holiday season.  Our hams come pre-cooked and vacuum packaged.  You can either slow roast them in the oven to heat them or heat them directly in the bag.  The Hampshire ham will take a good glaze well while the Suffolk ham needs no condiment except some good mustard.  We ask for a two week pre-order and a $20 deposit on our hams as they are made to order!

Holiday Roasts:

We have many different options for you if a roast is what you would like on your holiday table.  Please place your order well in advance to ensure availability If you have another cut of meat in mind, don’t hesitate to ask!
