When the last of our pigs were butchered at Lorentz Meats, they informed us that they were no longer going to process pork. Instead they were going to focus their business on beef and buffalo only. We love Lorentz and will still use them for our beef, but that meant we needed to find a new pork butcher.
We have used Odenthals Meats for small orders in the past and really like what they do. Lisa contacted the owners, Randy and Laura, and we are happy to bring our family business to their family business. Check out a cute video of them on their website’s homepage.
The Odenthals have been in business since 1999 and Randy’s philosophy was the same as it is today: “Please the customer by providing the highest quality and best tasting homemade products in the area.” Learn more about their family business here.
An exciting element of switching butchers is that we can now offer new products. Randy is willing to work with us to develop new custom bratwurst flavors. (And don’t fear if you loved our wild rice brats, Randy Odenthal was given the recipe from Lorenz).
We want to hear from you about which flavors of bratwurst you are wanting to try. Even if you are not a customer, go ahead and vote. We love to hear what people love to eat.
Please leave a comment about your favorite brat flavor. Also, tell us which region of the country you are from. It is interesting to see what is favorites in different regions.
PS If you are a customer of ours, please get on our pork list quick. Butchering dates are coming up soon and we don’t want you to be left out of delicious nutritious pork this year. Call us at 952-461-3428. Check out our website to learn how custom ordering works.
My mom has a customer who comes up from South Dakota and cooks brats he brings – I get invited most of the time. He makes Philly cheese brats with cheese, onions, and green peppers blended in.
They are prettttty good 🙂
I’m so excited for the hog we ordered to fill our freezer with fresh pork! I voted Jalapeno Cheddar. YUM. They all sound good.
