About Us

The Boilermaker Butcher Block is a state-inspected meat processing facility and retail store. Our mission is to provide students with a full farm-to-fork experience, giving them hands-on education in the production of premium meat products. All of our products are available in limited quantities based upon the needs of education and research. 

Our staff is comprised of Emily Ford, manager, and Laura Kerr, assistant manager, with student employees filling our labor needs. This gives students valuable hands-on experience, which makes them very marketable in the meat industry.
