Hometown Farmer: One Stop Meat Shop

Posted:

Ron Muth says seafood's pretty popular right now at the "One Stop Meat Shop" in Sioux City.

"The big shrimp just disappears," said Muth, the shop's owner, pointing into a freezer full of sea food.

Muth started the shop about twelve years ago, about the same time as his "Veggie Patch."

That's where we first met Ron in the fall of 2013, toiling away at his organic, chemical free patch of vegetables near Ireton, Iowa.

"One thing led to another and it grew from a little quarter acre patch to ten and a half acres." said Muth.

That's kind of how he got into the meat business, as well.

"It was a total accident," said Muth, smiling.

He started off taking meat to a farmers market, then decided he wanted somewhere to sell during the off season.

That's how the "One Stop Meat Shop" was born.

Inside you'll find a little bit of everything, even Blue Zone certified stuff like honey.

Much of what you'll find is very local, and drug and anti-biotic free!

The business is actually a co-op, more than 20 farm families are represented on the shelves and freezers than line the walls.

"Basically all you're doing is buying directly off the farm and saving the gas," said Muth. "So you're supporting local, local, local."

Ron Muth is a hometown farmer with a hometown shop, helping local agriculture thrive.
