Eickman’s on TV: The Know It All Guide To...Bacon Back a few months ago I posted some pictures on our Facebook page of a production crew here at Eickman’s filming. We are excited to announce that it was for a new show called “The Know It All Guide To…” on FYI network (check your provider!) and our episode is about Bacon. It was a great experience sharing our knowledge on how we make bacon the old fashioned way. Be sure to check out the premiere of our episode on Monday August 7th at 9:00pm CST on the FYI network. You can also check out our YouTube channel here to see some clips from one of the TV shows we’ve been involved with, as well as some commercials that have run. We were in the premiere episode of an old show called Food Tech: Cheeseburger and Fries, as well as a Modern Marvel’s episode: The Butcher, both of which were on The History Channel.

Convention News from KY

Convention News from KY
News from AAMP Convention 2017: Lexington, KY We recently came back from Lexington, KY where we attended our annual national meat convention. We are proud longtime members of the American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP) - the organization that puts on the convention each summer in a different city (so this is usually our family vacation as well) We had a great time as usual learning in educational sessions, reuniting with our friends from all over the country, and exploring the trade show, leaving with samples and lots of ideas.

New Packaging Machine!

New Packaging Machine!
Alright everyone, after 10 years of dreaming, planning and saving, we got our first rollstock packaging machine: the Bulldog from Ultrasource.  What does this mean for you, the customer? Change. Sorry! I know it's rough whenever we go and change the way we do something, but let me tell you why, and the benefits, to help soften the blow .  The first benefit for you: a better, stronger package to keep your food fresher. It's also easier to open - you can tear from the side instead of having to cut it open. Awesome! The second benefit: a cheaper package which will keep our costs down, helping to keep the prices for you down.  The first place you'll notice the difference is the bacon case. We ran bacon through the other day and while it went so much faster and has such a better seal and stronger package than the previous way, it does look different. As of right now, the bacon will be more compact, not laid out and "shingled" as before. That...
