We were referred to by a friend, who was very thrilled about telling us about the guy he dealt with, once before. The guy that came out to my house, slaughtered our 2 pigs with the help of his grand children. Which I feel was very excellent at that fact, the grand children was enjoying, watching, learning and participating in helping. I like the fact that I seen young kids get out and actually work and take up a task that most kids their age, would not be interested in. They're very hard workers and that's what everyone needs to see in kids these days. As far as the smoked meats I received it was immaculate. Smoked just perfect, the meats were cut perfect, I got what I expected and what I sent in. Very nice place and I will definitely be going back to them. Very good job!!

WARNING: I sent a 300 lb pig for butcher, and I got 75 lbs of meat back. 8 lbs of those bacon with NO fat left at all. Never seen this lean bacon. This pig was 10 months old, fed on corn, pig food, high end horse feed, left overs, and alfalfa and oat hay. Think he was skinny? The stuff smoked, tastes awful. Almost overpowering. No salt was added to the bacon at all. Mostly though, it is quite obvious that I was stollen from. I have NEVER seen bacon 9 inches long from a pig that was as big as ours. It took three men, all well over 6 foot to load the carcass onto the back of a pick up truck. I am absolutely FURIOUS. I didn't get a receipt or even a break down on how much anything weighed. Just told what we owed. There are much better places, and this one is obviously extremely dishonest. Go elsewhere.
