A Tradition of Wholesome American Made Food

Honest Flavor. Honestly Good.

Since 1945, Godshall’s has been dedicated to supplying premium meat specialty items to family tables everywhere. From a local family butcher shop to an international supplier, we pride ourselves on our quality, freshness and taste. And it all starts on the farm–the land and the animals. The welfare of both is a responsibility we take to heart because we care about the world we live in.

Our team of employee owners are constantly striving to bring wholesome products to market and our Culinary & Development team is always hard at work bringing you what’s next in delicious—like our real-wood burning smokehouses. So, if you’re ready for premium US raised turkey, beef, chicken or pork delicacies for a good value and a good price, look no further.
