Butchers, Outdoorsmen, Fathers, Sons, Brothers...The Bearded Butchers are a lot of things. What we love most is creating not only good food, but great eating experiences.
That's where the seasoning came in. We got tired of buying whatever was on the store shelf, and getting everything you don't want with it. Sugar, anti-caking chemicals, MSG, and more. So, Seth got to work mixing and blending spices, a job he was familiar with from growing up doing the same thing in the family butcher shop. Being an avid hunter, he naturally wanted a spice blend that would go great with wild game, and everything else. The family butcher shop was where we first introduced the Original Blend, in 2012. In fact, it wasn't even the "Original" Blend. It was simply "Bearded Butcher Blend. We chose "Bearded Butcher" to honor our father, who of course was bearded, and a butcher, the man who founded the meat business in 1989, raising and selling Bison meat.
After selling our Original Blend for several years, the idea came to us to expand the flavors, and theme them after the three sons, all of who are active in the business. Chipotle (oldest son Sean), Cajun (middle son Seth), and Hot (youngest son Scott).
We continue to grow and expand our offerings, based on our unique approach to butchering, wild game, family, and the outdoors, choosing flavors and blends that compliment our rich heritage and bright future. With the 3rd generation of the Perkins Family now involved, we look forward to serving you for years to come.
