About Us

John''''s Custom Meats, LLC is a one stop meat market shop. We provide services for livestock slaughter and processing, as well as, our retail store front. We also have our own cattle farming operation adjacent to our building. John''''s Custom Meats, LLC is owned and operated by John Rediess, Jr. Our proprietorship business has been in operation in Warren County for nearly 20 years. John has over 40+ years experience in the slaughter/processing/retail meat industry. He grew up in the business with his father, who passed the trade on to him. A variety of services are available for the livestock producer. Whether you are selling your livestock on the hoof or direct marketing through farmers markets or other outlet, we offer a unique service for you. We also offer South Central Kentucky consumers Kentucky Proud, Kentucky born and raised beef, pork, lamb, chevon, and fryer rabbit meat products, direct from local farms. I believe that bears repeating. Kentucky Born, Kentucky Raised, Kentucky Fed, Kentucky Slaughter & Processed, direct from the farmers’ field, to our processing facility, to the consumers'''' dinner table. It just doesn''''t get any fresher than that.

It is our belief that our farmers are some of the best in the US. Our current livestock processing customer base includes 21 (and counting.......) Kentucky Counties.

We have had great response in the community and in neighboring Bowling Green, Brownsville, Park City, and Glasgow cities. The buzz is more than we could have hoped for. Consumers are excited about buying local. We can provide a one stop shop, eliminated the shipping of calves our west to be fed in one place, then sent to another for slaughter, processing, repackaged, and then reshipped back to the community retail chains. It just makes since and consumers are energized. With that said, this is a large undertaking. Community Support is needed. We believe that this will not only provide consumers safer meat products, but will also provide some much need rural job opportunities, and will boost farming revenues that were lost from the drop in tobacco production. We have established relations with these local farms and believe in their farming skills and reputations. Support your communities. Buy local! Buy Fresh! Choose Kentucky Grown Beef, Pork, Lamb, Goat, and Rabbit Meat Products!
