I AGREE; lots of good veggies to eat. Why kill a poor calf.

In post #6, an Amish meat place in Manchester was mentioned. I'd like to know more about it, such as the name, location, etc., and if anyone else has bought meat there. Thank You

I only get to shop at Roark Meats once a year when I'm visiting family in Kentucky but have always had great food from their retail shop. Their butcher will custom cut ribeyes and grind meat for chili to your specifications. Everything I've bought has been high quality and the boys working there could not be friendlier.

I took a 32 lb ham in to Roark's for slicing and wrapping. 32 pounds---after they got through with it I got 12 lbs of meat. I am not the sharpest knife on the table but something there is wrong, wrong, wrong. With all I have had killed before should have been 18-20 pounds at least.

Go up route 11 all the way through Manchester, 4 miles north on 11; turn right on Bowling Branch Rd and go 2 miles. The Amish have the BEST meat in the country!!!

Sound like another hsus nut talking out thier butt. They are trying to take away you rights no fishing or hunting. They don't even want you to have pets. They kill more animals than they take care of and use your money to get fat

My son shot a 165 lb field dressed buck. I did not have time to butcher it myself so we took it to Roarks. The deer was shot one time behind the shoulder. There should have been minimal waste with the shot placemnent. We received 33 lbs of meat back from the deer. I had been there several times in previous years and had been always treated fairly until today. They could provide no explanation. I feel I was robbed.. I will never be back.
