We believe in Fresh! Many larger stores are using a prepackaged meat product, that is cut in a factory, injected with sodium preservative solutions, and then shipped hundreds of miles to be stocked sometimes already being days old! But NOT us. Our meat is cut fresh for you daily in our meat department. Our Beef and Pork is ALWAYS fresh, NEVER chemically injected, NEVER prepackaged, and NEVER shipped long distances. YOU are important and WE will custom cut for you. Serve your family the best, from your Hometown Store!

Photo shows Bill Koch (right) learning the meat department at a young age. In 1965 Bill became a meat cutter, a passion he still has today. His passion for the meat department and commitment to excellence has been passed down to four generations now. This passion is the reason our locations are considered the best meat departments in the area.

Pork is the most consumed and versatile protein to serve. It’s easy to cook, and can adapt to almost any recipe. Whether you’re cooking for one or a holiday dinner for twelve, there are pork cuts for all occasions.
