Nine Freakin’ Years!!

On July 1st, we passed an important milestone. It was July 1, 2008 – nine years ago – that Joel and i took over T&E Meats and began operations. Seems like that was back in the stone age, it was so long ago, and there have been so many changes. And so much growth – our custom processing production has more than doubled.

The store is gone, almost all of the old equipment is gone – replaced by much newer, better machines – and the staff has turned over many times, always getting better. Two stalwarts from the original crew are still with us, however – Leroy Michael and Leo Lopez. If you see them, tell them congratulations and thanks for their many years of services at We are grateful for all of the support we have gotten from the Virginia sustainable farming community over the years, and we look forward to continuing to serve you better and better.
