Fleisher's, the upstate butcher beloved by sustainable-meat freaks, New Amsterdam Market loyalists, and Julie Powell, will soon be spreading its gospel to an even larger paying audience: According to the shop's latest e-mail newsletter, both it and its mustachioed co-owner, Joshua Applestone, will appear next year in Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding, a comedy-drama starring Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener. Per its IMDb entry, the film is about a woman who takes her kids to meet their "estranged, hippie grandmother" in Woodstock. Although there's not yet a release date, one assumes that the premiere will mark the apotheosis of the rock-star butcher trend.
