Happy Valentine’s Day! I can’t believe our blog is a YEAR OLD already this month! We would love your feedback. How are we doing? Is there anything you would like to see added?
Pork Lovers..it’s your month! Take advantage of our February Half and Whole Hog Sale. Purchase a whole or half hog for only *$2.09 a pound! (*Subject to cutting loss) This price also includes smoking for hams and bacon. Be ready for Spring delivery BUT the quicker you order, the quicker you’ll receive it. Our meat is 100% local from within 100 miles. Call (608) 526-3112 to order.
Some of you may have heard about the beef recalls lately. Just a reminder, we are a State Inspected facility where a FSIS inspector visits every day to check our processes for quality, consistency and bacterial content. In La Crosse County, there are only 2 state inspected meat retail plants and we are one of them. We want you to stay healthy and shop local! This is just another reason to visit Holmen Locker!
VALENTINE GIFT IDEAS – For your favorite LADY, how about Chocolate Cellar Chocolate Red Wine paired with Sweet Shop Chocolates or Elmaro Vineyards Chocolate Truffle Pig Wine with Amish Candies.
For the GUYS, hit their heart with a custom Beef Jerky and Beer Basket. Choose from five beef flavors: spicy; mild; Tex-Mex; pepper and teriyaki. We also have spicy chicken and cured and smoked honey pork “Jerky”. With over 100 different beers to choose from, you’re sure to find a new or old favorite!
For your favorite GUY or GAL, pick up a bottle of One Last Kiss, a fruit forward Syrah based blend accentuating California’s best.
Don’t forget your favorite pooch! Who else loves you no matter what?! Treat your dog with our Smoked Dog Bones or Pig Ears…they’ll love you even more!
SUPERBOWL SNACK IDEA – Speaking of jerky…What would be easier than cutting your favorite jerky or snack sticks into bite size pieces to serve with your favorite cheese curds? Quick and easy but sure to be a fan favorite! Personally, I think we should make Superbowl Sunday a national holiday! Who’s with me? Let’s start a petition on Facebook.
