Borchert's Meat Market

In 2015, after years in the food industry, we realized our dream of owning a neighborhood meat market!  We live within a mile of our store, and we envisioned being a staple in the community by offering the highest quality meat and grocery products.  

Shortly after cutting the ribbon on our store, we had 3 major setbacks including a theft, criminal damage to our property, and a major mechanical repair.  This resulted in thousands and thousands of dollars lost, and really hurt our bottom line.  We had just gotten started and it seemed it was almost over.  Insurance only covered so much. (we were just too new)  We had to come up with the funds out of our own resources.  Hard to do for a family of 7.  But we poured our heart and soul into this store, our store, and we knew we had to keep going. "We bought ourselves a job" Dave says.

We believe in our store.  We believe in our community.  We don't think our story here is over.  If you appreciate us, our vision, neighborhood development, and local shopping, please consider showing your support by giving a donation or simply sharing this campaign on your own social media page.  We want to save our store and be a pillar in this community for years to come!  You can also help by shopping with us more frequently, grabbing an extra item or two, and telling your friends and family about us. Please don't keep us a secret. Thank you all your support is golden!

Sincerely, 

Dave and Donna Borchert
