About Lorentz Meats

In 1968, Ed and Mary Lorentz purchased the locally owned Bremer Brothers Meat Market, in Cannon Falls, MN. The Lorentz's hometown meat market quickly established a reputation for quality, trust, and customer service.

In July 1997, Ed and Mary Lorentz sold Lorentz Meats and Deli to their two sons, Rob and Mike. To grow the business, the brothers assembled a group of family and friends as investors and built a new, larger processing facility in 2000. To focus efforts on meat processing, the deli and retail location was sold in 2005. Now in our fourth decade, Lorentz Meats has grown to about 65 employees and we continue to grow in our capabilities to serve national niche meat brands, while maintaining our commitment to serve local farmers who bring in just one animal.

Our facility is USDA inspected, certified organic, audited for quality by Silliker, and permitted for export to the European Union.

We pride ourselves on customer service and transparency, to this effect we offer large windows looking into our abattoir and fabrication area where any customer can come and view our production process. This commitment to transparency has earned us recognition in many places, including from Michael Pollan in The Omnivore's Dilemma.
