Alex Pope

Alex Pope is the celebrated chef who founded The Local Pig butcher shop in the East Bottoms area of Kansas City in 2012.  Alex started his career in Madison, WI and moved to NYC to go to school and cook.  Alex was the sous chef at The American Restaurant for 3 years and was the Executive Chef at the R Bar in Kansas City where he earned local and national recognition for his work.  Alex focused on whole-animal cooking and sausage making as a Chef and turned his passion into The Local Pig.

The Local Pig (thelocalpig.com) is a butcher shop and charcuterie that exclusively carries humanely-raised animals from small family farms within 100 miles of the KC area.  The Local Pig only works with farmers who raise their animals outdoors, no confinement cages and no hormones, steroids or antibiotics.  The Local Pig also operates an outdoor restaurant called Pigwich - a short and daily changing menu features meats from the butcher shop with handmade sauces and pickles on freshly baked breads.
