The Meat Block Expands

When Phil Schmidt opened The Meat Block four years ago in Greenville, he was guided by a passion for meat and had 18 years of experience at Haen Meats in Kaukauna as his foundation.


In the next few years, besides developing a good following and knack for running his own butcher shop, he expanded his footprint twice at N1739 Lily of the Valley Dr. He added a second smokehouse, a wine room, more coolers and grilling equipment. His larger licensed commercial kitchen will be ready next week for his catering and wholesale operations. Altogether, it's now more than 7,000 square feet.  See More...

The New London Public Museum announces the first Save the Birds sponsor in 2014! Myrl and Laurie Olson decided to sponsor the museum's one and only Roadrunner. With their donation, NLPM will be able to have this bird cleaned and preserved. Charles Carr, the founder of the museum, collected the Roadrunner in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1887.
