I have purchased many cuts of meat this summer from Locust Grove and the quality is outstanding ... hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, hot and mild sausage, smoked kielbasa and cold cuts such as turkey and ham. Every item is fresh, flavorful and tender. Pleasant and helpful staff, too.

Locust Grove butchers the meat I purchase from Mackbrook Farms and they do an excellent job!! They carefully review the cutting instructions to be sure each piece is just the way I want it. They are always courteous and helpful. The Meat stays fresh in the sealed packages for a very long time. Looking forward to my next order of grassed beef!!!

My wife and I had been looking for a butcher/smokehouse that provided quality meat at a VERY reasonable price. Their prices are always competitive and we have yet to purchase a cut that was not top quality. The staff is always helpful and kind. If you want fresh, quality vacuum sealed meats at an affordable price you have to check them out!

I love this place! The meat is fresh and delicous. The smoked products are amazing. I ordered a trukey for Thanksgiving and a prime rib for Easter. Both were the best I had ever tasted. The prices are very reasonable and it is local. I stop in everytime I head up North. They even have great bones for my dogs. Five stars!

Products purchased there were adequate.

But bringing in animals for slaughter please read below.

Last year I brought a 1500 lb Angus to be butchered. Only got back 500 lbs of cuts, butcher chargered us for saving the hide $50.

When I asked the butcher where is the rest of the meat, he told me there was 6 inches of fat on the animal.

I also asked for the fat, got very little.

If your looking to take an animal there to be butchered then buyer beware, these people are also not polite on the phone, wrapping of the meat poorly done as many packets became unsealed.

A small farmer like me has a very tight margin on having animals USDA butchered, if there is a meat missing then it literally doesn't pay to try and sell it.

I have passed on this to my farmers group, very disappointed in the service.

No one helped to load my meat out but a woman sat outside and watched me so I would not steal their meat trays.

Anyone who knows the beef loss % would know that a 1500 lb live animal would have a hanging weight of from 700 to 750 lbs. Then when processed it will loose another 30 to 40% from hanging wt. to packaged wt. Depending on how it was cut, so 500 lbs of meat would be right in the percentage range. Vacuum Packed meat when frozen is very easy to puncture the bag if not handeled carfully.
