A little about the beef...
All of the beef in Montello Freeze Locker Boxes is Michigan-raised and pastured on Moraine Park Farms. The animals are fed a unique, healthy diet that contains all non-GMO, Michigan ingredients. Additionally, they are raised with no added hormones or antibiotics.
After harvest, the beef is dry aged for a minimum of 21 days. During this process, enzymes break down muscle tissue allowing for ultimate tenderness and flavor. Every portion of the beef is naturally improved through the dry aging process so the ground beef is equally as tender and flavorful as the steaks.
About these boxes...
The composition of each Freeze Locker Box is purposeful and allows for the use of the entire animal. We want to do our part in the sustainability of local agriculture, and one huge way we can effect that is to offer boxes that are essentially a "share" in a whole beef.
By dividing the animal into shares - our different Freeze Locker Boxes - we can make sure each animal is utilized before bringing in new ones.

So now it's snowing and blowing and cold outside! Tina and I are enjoying our new home, and we're working on it making it ours. (It's a project house.) All the kids (8 of them) were home for Thanksgiving, and we all went to my folks. It was wonderful!
We are spending more time and energy with our folks right now, as they have developed some health issues. Naturally, they have are a bigger part of our lives.
To those of you I said we weren't delivering, I'm sorry. Go to our website and order now! Thanks for your support.
Merry Christmas! Enjoy your family! And have a blessed New Year!

Hello Meat Lovers!
Our next delivery is this next Tuesday and Wednesday, August 16 & 17!
Back to school shopping means less time for meat shopping so let us take that worry off your plate. We will bring great tasting, dry-aged beef right to your door! Make sure to check out all of our updated Boxes and NEW lower prices!
Because so many of you have asked, "Tony's" handcrafted brats & sausages are coming back! We have begun working with Kitchen 242, a certified commercial kitchen in Muskegon. We will update you on our progress, and pass it on to your fellow brat-lovers!
It is simple, just go to our website montellomeatmarket.com, and then to the "SHOP" page to place your order. Pick your Box or a combination of Boxes, pay and poof! you will have meat on your doorstep. (OK, you will have to wait for the delivery day).
There are seven new Freeze Locker Boxes to choose from. Each Box lists the cuts, along with the pricing. We create the Boxes based on the cuts we have available and what you have asked for!
Please, place your order on our website by the end of the day Monday, August 15. That gives me time to box it and load it in my little red wagon and deliver it to you. Its like the store coming to your door!

I know you haven't heard much from me lately; I just wanted to let you know I am still here! Tony and I feel we have been given a gift these last months...simply, time. When we bought Montello's in 2003 we were raising a family. We all worked together to bring a joyful attitude to our customers every time you came into our stores. We grew as a company and as a family and we tried to give back all we had been given. Our family is growing and all of our children are enjoying building their lives with someone they love all over the world. We are grateful to all of them and to all of you for supporting this business and us. We have blessed with the time to work and play in this beautiful place we call home. I do miss seeing you, feel free to keep me posted on your families! As always we keep you all in our prayers.
Peace, my friends!
Tina (and Tony) Larson
