Looking for a good butcher

31 posts in this topic

I am looking to buy a half hog and half beef and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good butcher in the St. Cloud area.

I have heard good things about the meat market in Kimball. I'm not sure of the name though.

Knaus is the name of the one in Kimball, they are good for that.

Check out Foley Locker, I have used them to butcher our hogs for over 10 years and they always do a great job. They also do our venison snack sticks and summer sausage.

I have had great luck with Belgrade Meats in Belgrade, MN. I know it's a ways from Cloud but may be worth a shot.

I have to go with IceHawk, Tessmer meats is very good (They raise hogs, might do beef also, USDA regulated. I would look for that for sure). They are just North of Eden Valley off 22, West of the "Chain".

Next choice would be Rosers, by Watkins.

Try Petty Bro's in Annedale. I've brought in about 8 deer to them and they do really good work. Lower pricies also!

I've taken a couple of deer to Belgrade Meats, they do a good job. Also the next time you're there try some of their Turkey jerky, its very good!!! I need to get up there to pick some up for my trip to Red in a couple of weeks!!

Thanks waska, I won't waste time looking for Sunnyside, since I guess I already know where it is. Nice people / service there. Great meat and I've had some pretty interesting concoctions (sp?) from there in the past. (Peanut butter / jelly summer sausage crazy). Aquired taste, but I loved it.

St Joe is really good, but pricey. I would look at Psycks in Bowlus, really reasonable and great meats!

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
