A Family Tradition as Reno's Butcher

Ken Jolly learned sausage making not only from his family, but others as well. As a teenager, he was mentored by Dominic who passed down some old world traditions of Italian charcuterie. Louis Jorgensen was the next influence in Ken's art as he learned the Danish and Norwegian styles of sausage. Ken then went on to mentor many others in the same art to ensure the tradition continued. We couldn't even begin to count the combined years of knowledge, though it shows through in the quality of the product to this day.

We would rather serve 1 customer 100 times than 100 customers once.

Part of living up to our motto is educating our customers on how to buy and enjoy their favorite meats. That's why we invited some of the loyal Yelp Reno Elites to join us for a few nights of sausage making and butchering. Check out some behind the scenes of the event below.
