What Our Customers Are Saying

“Absolutely the very BEST & ONLY meat processing and retail shop in all of NW Minnesota to go to. The owners, Dave & Jan, are wonderfully kind, professional, and treat each and every customer who walks through their door like family!

“Fantastic meat and prices. I drive over 50 miles one way to get their products!”
‒ Mike D.
“They slaughtered, picked up, and processed three Red Wattle/Large Black cross pigs for us. They smoked the hams and bacon and made sausage for us, as well. We are extremely impressed with everything they did. They are prompt and professional and they ensured that our pigs were processed into the best pork we’ve ever eaten… We’ll keep coming back.”
‒ Lynn W.
