I'm sure the first person that wrote the review was there under management between 2005 and 2009, because it is back the way it used to be the first 50 years. Spanish speaking employees are the way to go, they appreciate the job. I call my orders in and the order is ready to be picked up when I get there. Just a side note for those that think they are getting cow. It's not cow its most likely a steer because it would be chewy and made into ground meat. Double check with the farmer you are buying it from.

I have used Hansen Meats for many years, family owned, the greatest place to go. A few years back it was sold, we did pick up our 1/2 of beef at that time and we were very disappointed in it. They left on way too much fat and too much bone. I could see they were trying to get more money as you pay so much a pound, cut, wrap and froze. The more fat and bone, the more they make. Since then the old owners took it back and it is AGAIN the best place to get your animals processed and to purchase meat from. Yes, they have spanish speaking employees, but so what?

I picked up my half cow on 9/22/10 after reading these reviews and wondering if I had made a mistake. I pulled in and yes, there were a lot of Spanish speaking employees roaming around. It was not so when I walked into the building. The staff in front are actually the owners and the management did not change like the previous review said unless another Hanson family took over. They are the same people who were there the last time I purchased a cow, many years ago. This includes grandpa who was the one who helped me load my truck!! The interior was clean and the employees SUPER friendly!!! I didnt have any problem paying by credit card and the cc machine was in plain view. My meat was beautifully packaged with no rips, tairs or dirt to be seen. I have no idea where the gentleman who gave the bad review went but I have a hard time believing it was the same place I went. Maybe he was at another similarly named place. I will be using them again next fall when we need our next cow processed!! Btw, I have only opened one package but I can tell you that the rump roast was cut beautifully with very little fat, that's a very good sign!!

I was there on 8/5/10 and thought it was a great place to deal with. My gourmet in-laws raved about the steaks I bought there. I also got a pork belly there - haven't been able to find one locally. I can't vouch for the butchers but all the other employees I dealt with were native english speakers. I paid by credit card - since I saw the credit card terminal in clear view I knew they took credit cards. I will definatly be buying from them again.

After years of sending our beef there as well as purchasing there often I was shocked when I went there to pick up a 1/2 steer I purchased.
First let me say while I had known or at least recognized the employees there for some 20 +years I found that under new managment not a single previous employee was there any longer. All of the former employees had lived locally and all of them were gone.
As usual I went to write out a check from my local bank as I had for all my past dealings. I was told they "we only take cash" in broken english. I had to leave and go to the bank to bring them cash to pay for the butchering to pick up the beef.
When I came back I found out the do take credit cards. When I asked why they did not tell me that she said "like cash better".
When loading the meat I found MANY of the packages were scuffed, damaged/torn/little portions of freeze damage, and alot of them were dirty. I had to insist they be rewrapped again in a conversation in broken english.
I will no longer do business there. The service is changed for the poorer and the requirement of cash seemed questionable.
And I miss those same old local, reliable faces.
I now go to Lake Geneva Meats and The Antoch Packing House.
