Winter Meat was started by our dad, John Winter when he purchased the business from John Arnold in March of 1967.
The history of the business starts with John Winter. Our dad was born in 1920 in Luwich, Poland. His father owned and operated a butcher shop in Luwich. Back then, the whole family worked the business. By the time John Winter was 16 years old, he was a master butcher.
World War II broke out and dad ended up working for the US Army for 5 years. By the time the war ended, our father and the US Army ended up stationed in Garmisch, Germany where he met Berta, our mother, and married in 1949. They purchased a butcher shop in Garmisch. After the war ended, it became increasingly difficult to make a living. In 1951, Jack was born in Germany.
Friends made in the US Army suggested and convinced them to move to the USA in 1952. They settled in Kansas City, MO. At that time, meat packaging plants were in the river bottoms in Missouri and Kansas. Dad had no problems finding work at Wilson Meat Packaging Company for 15 years. During that time, Perry was born in Kansas City in 1955. All of this leading up to John Winter purchasing the business in 1967.
In 1967, Blue Springs was a farm community with a population of about 2,500. The old building was off of 11th street. At that time, the business consisted of butchering and processing sides and quarters of beef, whole and half hogs along with maintaining a fresh meat counter. We outgrew the old building and dad built the current building in 1973. We had 3 times more space and expanded our retail sales. During the 1970's and 1980's, the building boom hit and a multitude of farmers sold their land. Blue Springs became a growing suburb.
During the growth, modern supermarkets came to town as well. This put quite the damper on custom butchering which in turn, put our business in a "funk". John Winter was diagnosed with cancer in the late 1980's and past away in December of 1990. As brothers, Jack and I had difficult decisions to make in regards to the business. We decided to shut down the fresh meat counter, went to freezing meat and offering package deals. We also concentrated on butchering and processing since there were few markets opening to offer these services.
First, the Party Pig business was initiated as wholesale and retail sales. Next, we offered custom butchering of hogs to other businesses. We also started taking in deer for processing. Several other small butcher shops began closing in the 90's. We then hooked up with a farm butcher, John Baldwin. When the year 2000 rolled around, deer processing was at it's height for business. We were averaging 1000 deer processing jobs plus another 1000 custom butchering jobs. Business was well. In the past few years, we have all suffered from the housing market crash, gasoline being up to $4 a gallon and a lot of people have lost their jobs. With all this happening, deer processing has dropped by 40% and party pig sales have steadily declined over the past 3 years. Once again, the times have put our business in yet another "funk".
Winter Meat will still offer all the previous services we have in the past plus some. We are now offering additional bulk pricing with a few different package deals which incorporate more varieties of meats.
Winter Meat has been in business for 45 years. We strive for great customer service and to offer quality meats at reasonable prices. Hopefully, the economy will pick back up and we can all get out of this "funk". If there are any cuts of meat that you do not see on this site, please call us at 816.229.3151.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and we hope to hear from you soon!
