IOWA FALLS BUTCHER SHOP
WHY OPEN A BUTCHER SHOP?
There was a need in the local area for a butcher shop that provides local farmers and hunters the option for custom butchering. Broad waiting periods for farmers to get their livestock into a butcher, the rising popularity of knowing exactly where your meat comes from, and the feel-good factor of helping local farmers earn more for their products solidified the opportunity to help the community by opening a butcher shop.
Broke Ground: June 3, 2021
Nimrod Meats opened this state-of-the-art 9800 square foot facility May 2022 with a small team of great people as a custom CIS certified meat processing facility. We slaughter, process, and package on-site. We are working towards certification to be a full service retail specialty butcher shop.
We are able to connect you with a local farmer if you want to purchase meat. The addition of a retail meat shop featuring fresh meat, seafood, and other items is projected to be open in the fall of 2022.

WHY THE NAME NIMROD MEATS?
Nimrod is described in the Bible as being the first on earth to be God's mighty hunter. He is associated with attempting to build the Tower of Babel and fell from God's grace by becoming somewhat of a tyrant, which is where the definition you are familiar with came from. Rocky, the owner, is also a mighty hunter and likes to have fun so naming the locker Nimrod Meats seemed like a great idea!
