Join Our Team!

Country Village Meats is all about meats crafted in the old-fashion butcher shop tradition. We are a family-owned business where meat is our passion. Our mission is to make the finest tasting products via the artisan methods of years gone-by.

Our team members offer decades of unparalleled experience in whole animal butchery, curing and smoking, sausage making, marinating meats, and cutting and trimming fresh steaks and chops as customers request. Much of their skilled meat cutting is on display for customers to see in our retail shop.

We put so much into our meats because we love food. We enjoy creating meats our customers count on for their holiday gatherings and family occasions. We seek hardworking, team-oriented people who are excited to share this passion with our customers through delicious culinary experiences.

About Country Village Meats

Country Village Meats is a family run butcher shop and small meat processing plant located in Sublette, IL. Since 1955 we offered the highest quality beef, pork, and chicken to our customers. We smoke a variety of delicious hams, bacon, and snack sticks in our state-of-the-art smokehouse. We also make a variety of fresh sausages and marinated steaks, pork chops, and chicken.

In our old-fashioned butcher shop customers can watch us cut halves of beef and pork. Customers can order quarters or halves of beef and pork cut just the way they want it. Animals are brought in by local farmers and slaughtered on site under state inspection.
We have a retail store with fresh cut steaks, our full line of marinated products, smoked meats, deli meats, cheeses, and other local foods.

Our meat plant and shop began as the Leffelman Meat Center. Each generation of owners and butchers shared their expertise and recipes passing everything on to the next family who owned the locker. Although the name changed, our approach to crafting the best meat products in Lee County since those early years remains the same. We take pride in offering only the highest quality meats, made the old-fashion way.
