Do you know your butcher?

If you have dealt with or currently utilize another meat processor, do you get to see your butcher in action or even know his/her name? More than likely the answer is no. What about the folks who debone, grind, package, and label? We proudly recognize all of our staff and appreciate their hard work! Ever want to see them in action? Stop in and watch through our viewing window during regular business hours. Many of our staff are cross trained and fulfill many functions. One day they may be building fences on the farm and the next day deboning your beef. The flexibility and loyal service is appreciated!
