About Townsend Butchers
Townsend Butchers was purchased by Doug and Dave Miedema on Feb. 21st 1972. Their start was a very humble one, in the first few months they had several days where they put meat in the counter in the morning and took the same meat out again at the end of the day. It did not take long for the community to realize that they now had a source for fresh high quality local meat, along with fast and friendly service. Word of mouth soon spread the good news and the business has continued to grow ever since.
The core values of providing high quality local meats with efficient and friendly staff have taken us this far and this is our guide in all the business decisions we make. As the business has grown over the years the staff, the building and the product list have all grown along with it. We now offer a full range of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, goat, bison meats, as well as a full deli section with most of our products being made in house. On May 1st 2011 Doug’s sons Steve and Jeff purchased the business and began a major expansion, which was completed by the end of October.
Succession has not changed any of our core values, we still continue to offer high quality locally raised meats with efficient and friendly service. Thanks to the grace of God, the overwhelming support of the local community and an awesome staff and facility, we are able to continue to provide all of this for you now and for a long time to come.
