Bauer Custom Meats is a family owned and run business in northern Illinois, centrally located between Chicago, Peoria, La Salle/Peru, Rockford, and the Quad Cities. We serve all of northern Illinois, eastern Iowa, and even some folks in southern Michigan, Minnesota, and Indiana. We raise grass fed and finished whole and half lamb and beef year-round. We also offer pastured chicken (whole) and pork (whole and half) raised on locally produced grain and forage.
We believe in the humane treatment of animals allowed to live similarly as they would in nature, not crowded in a feedlot and fed unnaturally high levels of grains and concentrates. Our animals are never treated or implanted with hormones, or fed antibiotics to unnaturally increase rate of weight gain. We use an inspected meat processor nearby and butcher to your specifications.
