About Us

Welcome to a simpler time when people knew their butcher by name. When stopping to pick up a Sunday roast or plump chops to throw on the grill was part of a family’s routine.

At The Butcher & Grocer you’ll find the highest quality Ohio beef, lamb, pork, chicken, cheese, and select grocery items. Our meat products are 100% pastured and are antibiotic and growth hormone free. We were motivated to open our shop because of the growing community of people like us who are mindful eaters and caretakers of this planet and who demand natural good food.

Our Story

Tony Tanner, Owner

Tony is a husband, father, and conservationist gamesman who loves local, sustainable food almost as ferociously as he loves his family. When his friend Rob “Earl” Young lost his battle with cancer, Tony was fascinated by the link between this devastating disease and the foods we eat. He began a quest to find local, sustainable, antibiotic-free, growth hormone-free, farm-raised meat. He didn’t find much. Not one to accept the status quo, he decided to open his own butcher shop.

Our Difference

It all begins in the green pastures of Ohio with our farmers tending their herds and flocks. When the time is right, the farms we source from provide the utmost attention to humane slaughter at local, family-owned facilities.

Beef, lamb, and pork never come to us frozen or in any type of box or bag. We deal only in whole animal butchery. Beef is grass fed on pasture and also provided with a non-GMO feed. Our pork and lamb is raised on pastures as nature intended. Chicken is rotated on pasture every 12 hours.

Our cheese selection and grocery items are Ohio-centric or from companies that share our values and our bacon and sausage is house-made.
