Holiday Meat Shopping Tips


Season's Greetings ! Go Ducks !
Can you believe the holidays are upon us already? Fast and furious here as we started getting busy before Thanksgiving. We all wish you a joyous holiday season and awesome New Year !


Practical tips to make your meat shopping easier:
call us early and pre-order - we are too busy at the counters during the day and cannot return emails right away. One week in advance is helpful - 503-344-3172.

Ever heard of a "Crown Roast"?
Very popular here during the holidays, crown roasts are a rack of lamb or pork that is made circular for your holiday presentation and trimmings. Call ahead on these also !
We also have the best prime rib and free range turkeys, all locally raised with sustainable farming. Want the turkeys smoked? Ask us. Spiral sliced hams are in the store with our own honey glaze. Another favorite is an old fashion style bone-in ham smoked in Portland by Zenners which is the same spiral sliced ham that we honey-glaze. Take your choice or both ! Prime Rib is a favorite here as we dry age them and cut them to order.

Say Cheese - and Visit Our Deli - Free Wine Tasting !
Our deli has some great holiday choices of cheeses and wines. Just in- new Italian reds with an average price of only $9.00 - also the award winning Rogue River Blue - wrapped in grape leaves and dipped in pear brandy. If this does or doesn't make your mouth water reading about it then come in and taste a free sample! Other cheeses include a Long's exclusive from the new local Eugene creamery Cheese Louise Creamery. Holiday ideas for a lasagna or dessert cheese - could include a Whole Milk Ricotta – Tuscan style. How about a lightly salted and dried Rusticella, also known as “Ricotta Salata”? Or Mascarpone, an Italian style cream cheese ? These are specialty cheeses from Cheese Louise Creamery that are made locally with fresh whole milk from local herds without antibiotics or hormones.

Free Wine Tasting Every Friday 3pm - 5pm - includes wine and cheese. Like one that you just tasted? You can open a bottle, sit at a table here and get 10% off. Don't forget the cheese.
