About us


The idea of building a meat locker began thirteen months before breaking ground for our facility near Stickney in August 2021. We hope 281 Meats will help ease the stress  of ranchers looking for a place to process their livestock. Our goal is to process South Dakota raised, quality meat straight to your kitchen table.
