November News - Holiday, Hunting, Hiring and More!
Welcome to one of our busy seasons! November kicks off our fall/winter busy season with hunting and holidays. I'll try to keep this brief, but here are a few notes: -Hiring: We are currently hiring for the position of meat boner. You can check out our facebook page for more details on the position, or just stop in and apply in person, check out the position and ask any questions you may have! -Hunting: While we wish you deer hunters much success, we also might have to cut off taking deer at a point. Our coolers are already getting quite full and the holiday workload is heavy. Archery season seems to have been a success for many of you; depending on how successful shotgun season is will dictate if we need to stop taking deer at any point. If you aren't sure, feel free to call first. This weekend we should still be fine to take them. Holiday: Happy Thanksgiving! We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. Of course if you have a preset time to pick up a turkey,...

Deer Hunting

Deer Hunting
Deer hunting season is upon us! We are selling licenses and tags as I’m writing this. Archery season started October 1, 2017 and the first Firearm season kicks off November 17, 2017. A few notes: Archery hunters - Please make sure to remove your broadheads (sharp metal arrow tips) or let us know if they are still inside the carcass. Those are not what our cutters are wanting to suddenly come upon. Please make sure to get it to us asap so the meat is still good - if the temperature outside is warm especially! Come on in to the store/front office where we will get your information and cutting instructions. We do require a deposit on deer processing. If you are dropping whole carcasses you may then drive around back and we can help you unload. If you are dropping off boneless meat or bone in chunks we can take that in the store. You may also donate your deer to Sportsmen Against Hunger, just let us know....

Fair Season

Fair Season
Fair Season is one of our busiest, but greatest times of year for a few reasons. First, we do not just go to our county fair, Winnebago, but also to surrounding counties such as Stephenson, Boone, Ogle, Mchenry, and Dekalb. We supply meat to a few of the food vendors, so there are many butterfly pork chops to get cut and brats and pulled pork to be made and delivered, among other products. We also process a large portion of the beef cattle, hogs and lambs that are shown by the 4-H’ers at the fairs, which if you are an area farmer that brings us hogs or cattle, you know those are the weeks we cannot get you booked in. Winnebago County Fair and Boone County Fair are the two largest fairs for the number of animals we get in, so those are marked off on our calendar. That also means that we usually do not accept any catering jobs at that time. Everything we have gets thrown at getting those animals processed and to the customer in an optimal time frame for quality of the meat....
