Bluescreek Farm Meats is a small-acreage farm located less than an hour's drive from Columbus. We raise everything on our farm, take it to a local slaughter house to be butchered, and then process everything at our store in Columbus. We do everything in small batches; this is important to continually provide a quality product!
We are a family farm through and through. We (Cheryl & David) have lived and worked on farms our entire lives, and have raised our kids in the same fashion. In the late 1980's we started working more with a specialized breed of cattle; Belgian Blue. Over time we realized what amazing meat we had on our hands! We knew the meat we had was too good not to be selling it directly to the consumer. Over 20 years later we no longer just specialize in one specific breed of cattle. We are now well known for raising our own cattle, lambs, hogs, and goats.
Even though our kids are fully grown, they still play a part in our day to day activities and decisions; Cody is in college and takes care of most of the day to day animal care, Jamie has been maintaining our online communications/marketing and helps at the store on a regular basis.
We opened our store in the North Market May of '93. Since our opening we have only expanded in the range of products that we provide on a day to day basis.
Today, many people refer to us as a "Mom & Pop Butcher Shop of Columbus," but we have evolved into much more than that. We still do things the old fashioned way (the way it should be done),
raising the animals with NO Growth Hormones or Antibiotics, processing the meat locally and in small batches, and having a real relationship with our customers. However, we offer much more than what
you would expect to find at an old "Mom & Pop Butcher Shop." We don't just offer a great product with friendly service and advice. We now have OUR OWN Canned Beef, Cutting/Cooking Classes, CSAs, and more. We are evolving in a way that is condusive to your families needs and ours!
In addition to our wonderful meats we also have a great selection of dry products; natural rubs, Ohio Jams & Jellies, Ohio Maple Syrup, BBQ Sauces, Bean Mixes, and MORE!
To provide all natural, top quality, local meats for the health conscious consumer.
For those of you in the Columbus area who are looking for someone who can really sharpen your knives look up Blair McCreary (AKA The Knife Guy). Blair has been sharpening our knives for years. He does a quality job at a reasonable price!
Another option for knife sharpening: Bryce Bell-Doell at Survival Tactics in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
Over the years we have been blessed to have drawn in some amazing customers, many of whome we consider family; they have watched our kids grow, and we have watched theirs.
