Meat & Greet: Linford
For today’s Meat & Greet, we’re featuring one of our team members at our Intercourse, PA location – Linford!
Q: Tell us a little about your connection to Stoltzfus Meats and what you did before working behind the meat counter?
A: My first connection with Stoltzfus Meats is that I grew up with the Stoltzfus brothers at a local church and both of our families were in the meat industry. Before working at Stoltzfus, my wife and I owned/operated Lapps Meats for 36 years. We were wholesale customers of Stoltzfus Meats.
Q: What is your current role at the company and what are the main responsibilities in your role?
A: In my current role at Stoltzfus Meats I am a butcher. I assist the customers in specialty cuts of meat as well giving instructions on how to prepare the meats. I wait on customers and give my fellow employees great conversations throughout the day.
Q: What does a typical workday look like for you?
A: A typical day at Stoltzfus starts with me cutting items on the saw, grinding meat for the case, filling the display case, waiting on customers, doing some paperwork and it ends with cleanup.
Q: What do you like to do for fun or how do you spend your time off?
A: I enjoy hiking, hunting, traveling to visit my children, sightseeing, and spending time with my dog Bently.
If you’re ever shopping at our Intercourse, PA store and you have a question about anything in our case or what kind of steak/roast would be best for a recipe – Linford is a great person to ask! We appreciate all the knowledge that he brings to his role AND all of the great conversations he has with his fellow teammates :)
