New custom meat processor opens in vicinity of Walnut

WALNUT — A new custom meat processing facility recently opened near Walnut.

Walnut Acres Butcher Shop has begun butchering beef and pork for local individuals and farmers.

At a time when many small towns are losing their butcher shops and farmers often travel an hour or more to have their animals processed, Walnut Acres is filling a need in rural Illinois.

The family owned and operated butcher shop is inspected by the state of Illinois and processes cattle and hogs for personal consumption as well as retail sales.

Customers speak directly to the butcher’s office to request their tailored cutting orders, ensuring the meat is cut and packaged to their preferences.

Walnut Acres boasts the unique offering of extended pickup hours. Patrons have the opportunity to pick up their meat at their convenience in Walnut six days a week from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the local grocery store.

Walnut Acres is now booking butcher dates for the upcoming year. Those interested can call the office at 815-343-3936 for more information.
