Our business started 1984 as Mike’s Wild Game Processing out of our home in Campbellsport, Wisconsin. Mike’s deer processing reputation spread and business expanded, so in the spring of 1998 a separate meat processing building was constructed. During those years we continued to add new equipment to serve our customers needs. By 1999 our customers need and desire to have us add sausage making as an additional service required our state licensing and a 500 lb. smokehouse was added.
In 2002 we opened a store in Kewaskum offering fresh cuts of meat and sausage selling wholesale. It was then we changed our name to Mike’s Country Meats, and during this time, our beef jerky recipe was created. It took many months to perfect our great tasting beef jerky recipe; little did we know that it would take off as it did! In no time at all the customer demand required a 500 lb. tumbler and a 1000 lb. smokehouse just to keep up with the jerky accounts. So in the spring of 2006 we decided to sell the store and concentrate on what we do best; our famous beef jerky and flavored beef sticks. We added a horizontal slicer and another set of carts for our big smokehouse.
We are a family owned business, our sons Scott, Randy, and our daughter Christina have been a big part our business. Randy works with us in maintenance and sausage making plus other various duties. Christina handles customer service and product quality control. Scott & his wife Jill also help in supporting the business while caring for their twin boys! Jill will be handling all web site orders and will work to maintain the web site. We can’t forget our longtime friend, Connie, who has been with us for 6 years now in purchasing and outgoing sales.
Mike and Lora (Dad and Mom) we have provided the stepping stones for the future. We wear many hats in our business; Mike is in public relations and responsible for acquiring most new accounts for Mike’s Country Meats and services his weekly accounts at local service stations, pubs, taverns and convenience stores in the Southeastern Wisconsin area. Lora holds down the fort, doing all the book work, and keeping up with changes in the company and overseeing the many varied duties needed to expand the business.
Since our tasty beef jerky has become so popular, we’ve had nationwide customers ask about ordering. These are folks who came across our Jerky at pubs or convenience stores while visiting our fine state of Wisconsin on vacations or family trips. Now our web site gives us the opportunity to expand and offer our Famous Jerky to customers throughout the United States. Because YOU asked for it… we are “Meating Our Customer’s Needs”!
Remember our Number One Beef Jerky makes a perfect gift – a taste of Wisconsin home – to send to your college students, family & friends… what a treat to their taste buds!
