Russ H.
Troy Foods is the best meat market in this area. They are a full service butcher offering a nice selection of cheese and lunch meat, steaks, roasts, etc. They also trim it well so you aren't paying for a lot of fat and such. Only negative is that its cash or check only. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Learn More About Our Story

In 1944, two brothers, Harold and Earl Schmidt, along with their sister wives, Leola and Marie, founded the business of Troy Frozen Foods. At that time, their main business was food lockers and processing of hanging beef, and in the fall, they processed approximately 20 deer. They operated for 27 years at the original location of 200 South Main Street. In November of 1971, the company was sold to Don and Marilyn Nihiser, along with their two sons, Todd, and Terry. Don’s experience included 13 years in the meat industry as well as being the head cook in the First Infantry for the generals in Vietnam.

 The Nihisers added a retail meat counter, a wholesale delivery route, and the servicing of activities such as church dinners, picnics, barbeques, and other seasonal festivals. With already being a state-inspected facility, they started manufacturing products for retail and wholesale trade and were a wild game check station for the IL Dept. of Conservation.

A fire in 1993 left the business devastated, but although the building and content were gone, the knowledge, goodwill, and faithful customers were still there. Since rebuilding at a new location, the business has become incorporated in preparation to pass down to the next generation. Troy Foods, Inc. is now a Federal Meat Plant, producing different items for both local and interstate customers.
