Thurn’s Specialty Meats Since 1886

June 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Presented by Al Thurn

What is it about Thurn’s Specialty Meats that has hooked customers for 131 years? Is it the real spices added to the sausage and bratwurst?  Is it the unique brand of ham salad or sauerkraut made fresh from home-grown cabbage?  Could it be the pastrami, pepperoni, jerky, German-style bologna, blood sausage, braunschweiger, or head cheese?  Maybe it’s the unusual blend of red oak and mulberry logs that infuse a sweet smokiness to trout, tongue, and venison?  Or is it the signature bacon—single-smoked, double-smoked, or peppered varieties?   It might be a trustworthy character built on old-world recipes and a German work ethic nurtured through four-generations of a family-owned business.  You be the judge as you listen to Al Thurn’s stories of his family’s iconic market.
