The limited availability of cut and wrap services in the Kootenay and Boundary (and across the whole province) has been a limiting factor to expand production for many meat producers in the region. Granby Meat Co. in Grand Forks has just opened its doors and is a welcome addition to the local community. The storefront acts as a butcher shop and vending outlet for local beef.
Newly opened in December 2022, this butcher shop is a collaboration of Devin Chursinoff, of Pa Van Ranch in Grand Forks, a multi-generational ranch with a cow/calf and hay operation, an experienced butcher, and a family who has a dreams to create opportunities for the local meat sector.
Granby Meat Co. is pleased with the community support so far. As is underlined by the Granby Meat Co. website: “Simply put, we are butchers by trade, ranchers at heart, and we have one simple aim: to provide our customers with top quality meat.”
The ranching family secured a professional butcher to work at the shop as an integral part of the cut and wrap operation. This individual brings the retail experience from working in a grocery store to help the Granby Meat Co. operation with merchandising.
The cut and wrap serves local meat producers with professional butchering, an outlet for their products, and a space for residents to pick up local meat. Customers can find grab and go products, snacks like jerky, and custom cut premium meat products.
