ELMWOOD, Wis. -- Driving in Elmwood, you’re bound to drive by Sailer’s Meats.
The family-owned store has been in the small town since 1923, but its reach extends far beyond the town border.
Sailer’s Meats has earned national and international acclaim for its products with several awards over the years. Recently the group received six awards in the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Product Auction at the Wisconsin State Fair, including first reserve in flavored bacon, bone-in ham, dried or smoked beef and specialty cooked bratwurst.
Sailer’s was also recognized in the nationwide American Cured Meat Championships held in Alabama by the American Association of Meat Processors. There Elmwood’s Sailer’s won grand champion for heavyweight bacon as well as eight other top four placements in a competition between 51 competitors with a total of 484 products.
Sailer’s has competed internationally, with judges from Germany flying in to assess the entered competitors. In a recent international competition, Sailer’s had only one product that did not place out of the 25 it entered.
