Hot dog 2019.jpg

You’ve been patient and now it’s hot dog time again! Superbowl LIII is February 3rd and we’re all set to get you ready for the big day! Our all beef hot dogs are made and smoked in house with local pastured Buffalo Creek Beef. Please give us a call or stop by the shop to order hot dogs, sausages, ground beef, briskets, or anything else we can set aside for you to make the best tailgate. We’ll be accepting orders for hot dogs through Saturday, January 26th and everything else through Monday, January 28th.

*We are not set up for online, social media, or email orders—please call the shop.


Looking to improve on your usage skills in the kitchen? Sausage is a great way to incorporate whole animal into your repertoire. This class will walk you through the basics of our sausage making process, do some stuffing and linking yourself, and go home with some sausage. We might not get around to this class again until the fall, so tickets will go fast! More details and ticket purchase can be found at our eventbrite.


The winter is the perfect time to brush up on some cooking skills! Molly will be leading this class on Jan 27th in stocks, broths, and fats--everything you need to start flavorful, hearty winter meals. The ticket includes the instruction, some sampling, and some bones to take home to make your own stock! Follow this link to our eventbrite for more info and purchasing.

Deer season will be upon us before you know it!

Space will be very limited so get your tickets now! More information can be found here on our Eventbrite.
