I grew up around this family, in fact, my first ever job was working for Don and Virg at their local grocery store. I was the deli girl until I graduated high school.   To this day, I still ONLY buy my meat and cheese from them. It’s the best in the country!  Seriously. If you don’t believe me, try it.  (Barney’s Meats, Weyerhaeuser, WI)  They showed up for their session with a bottle of wine and a package of filet mignons.  The following night, Brent made them. We about died at how excellent it was.. the best meal ever! We had invited my sister and her boyfriend (who is a chef) over to eat with us, and I think Brent and I were both secretly wishing we hadn’t – we didn’t want to share!  I have many, many wonderful memories of this family, and still talk often about how Virg taught me how to count back change to customers.  You wouldn’t think it’s a big deal, but you would be soooo surprised at the people who cannot do it!  I tell Brent every year he should teach a chapter on it in his Math class.  Enjoy!

Barney’s Meats is located on 5th Street in Weyerhaeuser, WI.  Phone :  715-353-2271  – Try their homemade brats and bacon!!
