The pandemic has impacted businesses differently, but for butcher shops and meat markets, business is almost more than they can handle.
Many have added staff to keep up with orders. Some of the uptick has to do with more people eating at home and shopping locally.
The first spike came in April when meat processing plants temporarily closed and they became prime choice for farmers. At one point they processed 160 hogs in four weeks. Normally they do 40-60 in that span.
“My husband will ride up on his motorcycle and get their green pepper summer sausage he likes,” said customer Evie Berger. Demand is a good problem to have. Especially when there is no end in sight.
