Local entrepreneur Adrian Kretchmar met an Austrian ‘VLEISHCMASTER” named Robert Wiegele who decided to mentor and train him in the artisan trade of specialty MEAT CURING. Robert comes with 50 years of experience with specialty meat production in large companies and his experience spans from Europe to South Africa.
They commenced building a bespoke meat preparation butchery around May 2020 on his family farm which is just outside Johannesburg in a beautiful valley with a river running through. So it set the scene for our artisanal butchery to be established. They started their process of curing meats and developing a small product range that they felt were presentable and special to the market place and have grown from strength to strength since then.
