About Stoltzfus Meats +-

Amos S. Stoltzfus grew up Amish during the Great Depression. Every so often, his family would hold a "butchering day." With twelve siblings, there were always plenty of hands to help. Working together, the family would slaughter and break down one or two hogs into sausage, bacon, hams, and scrapple. As a young man, Amos purchased the family farm and turned this yearly custom into a business.

In 1954 Amos Stoltzfus and his wife Mary started selling meats and other Lancaster County goods at the New Castle Farmer’s Market in New Castle, Delaware.By 1966, a small retail store was attached to the butcher shop to supply local customers. The butcher shop expanded in 1969 and 1971 to allow for an increase in production, which grew to 45 hogs slaughtered a week.

Guided by the tried-and-true recipes and standards of Amos, Stoltzfus Meats continues to craft high-quality meats in the Pennsylvania Dutch tradition. Stoltzfus Meats now serves many retail stores, market stands, and restaurants throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region, including their original stand at the New Castle Farmer’s Market, where the same hand painted sign from 1954 still hangs.
