History of Prem Meats & Catering
Prem Meats was founded by our great grandfather Michael Prem in the late 1800’s in a little dwarf village, Teunz, Germany. Our grandfather, Joseph (Michaels’s son), immigrated to the U.S. in 1921 bringing along many Bavarian sausage recipes. Our father Bill has fond memories of the little butcher shop & smoke house that was built by his father on the Prem family farm north of Plain, WI.
In 1972 our father and a friend wanted to go west elk hunting, but did not have the money to do so. They decided to put a sign on the highway at his friends garage saying that they would skin deer for hunters for a small fee. They made enough to go west and have gone every year since. Later on they started experimenting with making sausage and did so in the little garage.
By 1984 both Dad and my Mom, Sandi, had full time jobs but took on the venture of building a meat shop for processing deer. The original shop, located on Kennedy Road, was built to accommodate 100 deer. As business kept growing the shop was built onto 5 years in a row, ending up with a building that can process 800 deer a season and comfortably house a retail shop in the front.
In the late 80’s Mom and Dad were approached by a local company to cater their summer party, thus starting Prem Catering. The retail portion of the business came about because of the high demand for our famous BBQ pork, which previous to this time was only prepared for catering events.
In 2000 the shop was built on for one last time to accommodate a larger retail meat area. By this time Dad & Mom had resigned from their full time jobs to put all their efforts into the retail store.
April 1, 2010 we bought the business from our parents and continued expanding on their already well known products. We operated for one and a half more years at the shop on Kennedy Road but as room once again got tight we started looking at moving our location to the nearby highway. In November of 2012 we opened the doors to our new facility located on U.S. Hwy 14 in Spring Green. With a retail area almost 10 times larger than our previous location and a production area double its previous size, we had the ability to add so many more products and provide a large fresh meat counter for our customers. In the summer of 2013 the long standing liquor store next to us closed its doors. It was at that time that we added beer, wine and liquor to our retail area.
During the deer season of 2014 we were at full capacity and even had to use the coolers at our old facility to hang deer in. It was then we started thinking about the possibility of needing to add on! By the time another year had passed it was evident that we needed to make more room as soon as we could to keep up with the demand and processing. We started drawing out plans for the addition and by the end of April in 2016 we began our addition. The new area will house a larger retail section with a walk in beer cave, a kitchen prep area that will allow us to do more baked goods, take and bake items and give us the much needed room preparing for catering events. There will be 3 more walk in coolers and two walk in freezers installed. In the back of the building an area will be designated for a new business adventure that is being launched May of 2016.
We are excited to introduce to our customers Natural Harvest LLC, a State Licensed Mobile Slaughter Unit.
This unit will allow us to travel to area farms to harvest beef, pork and other animals. This will give us at Prem Meats the ability to offer our customers the best hand selected beef and pork in the area. We have been working hand in hand with area farmers and producers to establish strong relationships and herd quality requirements.
We look forward to the expansion of our products and services to offer you the area's finest cuts of meats and smoked products! We are grateful for all our customers and hope you will stop on by the next time you travel through Spring Green.
