In 2002 we started processing venison at our shop on Dupont Rd, at that time we only offered cutting steaks, roasts, and burger. As business increased over the next few years we decided to add smoking to your options. We started to offer summer sausage, jerky and snack stix. Once hunters heard about the additional options, we became busier and grew with leaps and bounds. Feders quickly outgrew the shop's capacity on Dupont Rd so we began to look for another location.
The new location ended up being in Huntertown, our present shop. We set up the new shop using our years of experience in retail to better serve our customers. Feders Meats added a catering division and started serving meals at any event that our customers wanted. We have catered many weddings, graduations, family reunions, the list goes on.
During the winter of 2015 we came under Indiana BOAH inspection in addition to our existing Allen County BOH. This new inspection allows us to slaughter your livestock and get it back to you for your freezer.
In February of 2018, Feders grew again by purchasing the two Albright's Meats & Deli locations in Fort Wayne from Lee and Karen Albright. We're committed to carrying on their tried and true recipes while continuing to introduce our own as well. I am very proud of how our family has pulled together over the years to grow Feders Meats into a force to be reckoned with.
In the fall of 2021 we brought our retail store to the town of Huntertown. We have served that community since 2008 with our custom processing facility but now it includes a retail meat market. Feders is proud to be able to offer that great community a place to shop for meats and groceries. It is a great small store with so much packed into a small area. We are always coming up with new things that our customers are asking for.
The Fall of 2022 will bring more changes, we will become fully inspected at the huntertown facility which will allow us to butcher hogs and cattle and offer local raised, grass fed meats in our stores. Watch for that to become available soon.
Always feel free to ask for one of the Federspiel sons to answer any questions you may have.
