We have used McCarys for years and always been very happy so when Walstads bought the business we gave them a try. We had two steers and a pig processed and were very unhappy with the meat. It appears that we were shorted at least 200lbs of beef based on hanging weight going in. I have raised beef for years and have a good idea what the finished amount coming back should be. They did not follow our cutting instructions at all. The steak thickness was not a ordered and the roasts were all in 8lb packages not the 4lbs as ordered. Also the Hamburger was not ground very nicely and we keep finding lots of bone flakes in the meet. Will never go back again. The pork was not any better although I do think we got closer to the full amount of pork back. Bacon and sausage is nothing like McCarys used to do. Customer service was terrible, they blamed the animal for all the problems. Never again!

I have used McCary's for years and was very very happy with their service and how they processed my meat so I decided to take my pig up to Walstad, who took over the business when McCary's retired. I still haven't gotten my meat, Alicia called and said they were illegally locked out of the building for 5 days so my meat spoiled, when I became upset that my home grown meat was ruined, Alicia stated to me that I was the irresponsible one!!!! HORRIBLE service, Horrible!! Can't say anything nice about this place at all, please beaware of this place.

The beef jerky is to die for...it is so good, thick, moist, tender and so tasty...her special seasoning is so good, and smoked to perfection. I have been ordering beef jerky for the last 2 years from Alicia and have her next day FedEx it to me. I order $200.00 at a time....I have NEVER had a problem and have had great communication from her and her staff. Her beef jerky is the best of any of the butcher shops that I've tried in Western Washington and have even mail order from Arizona & Oregon. I would highly recommend buying any type of meat from her. She is very talented in what she does and her product proves it. I wish she'd move over here and I wouldn't have to pay for shipping. GREAT PRODUCT!!! Keep doing what you are doing! THANKS!!!

My wife is from the TC. Whenever we go back, I stop in for the jerky. I've been doing this since it was McCary's for the past 15 years. It beats any beef jerky I have found anywhere! I Flew out there a few times this summer and bought loads to bring home. The jerky with Walstad's tastes the same as it always has. I only have a few more packs in the freezer and I hope they last until my next flight there in the summer. Great beef jerky!
