A stop at Lake Geneva Country Meats should be on your weekly list

When I moved here five months ago part of my transition was finding a new grocery store. When I lived in Madison, I was a die-hard Woodman’s shopper, but with Woodman’s about 30 minutes away it wasn’t an option for regular shopping anymore.

Aldi had all of the produce, dairy and dry goods we liked, and Piggly Wiggly had the deli we were looking for, but neither had fresh or frozen meat we were interested in. My boyfriend mentioned he’d been to Lake Geneva Country Meats a couple times, so we went to check it out. I was instantly sold.

The larger-than-expected store out on Highway 50 east of Lake Geneva has fresh and frozen meat, canned and jarred goods, beer and wine, cheese and produce. During my first couple of trips, I picked up a couple canned goods along with our other items. All of the canned goods I tried (esepcially the pickled brussel sprouts) were super good, but a little pricey. They’re worth it for a fun treat, but not a regular purchase.

I’d also say the same thing about their cheese. They have a lot of novelty cheeses like bacon cheddar and whiskey soaked cheddar. If you’re looking for a lot of options of Wisconsin cheese — there are other places you could go. [UPDATE: Read an udpated post about their cheese.]

The produce section is surprisingly fresh. I’ve been getting most of my produce at Pearce’s recently, but earlier in the spring I was getting several items a week at LG Meats. The prices were similar to Aldi and usually cheaper than The Pig.

But let’s be real…I’m not going to LG Meats for the produce. Some of my favorite purchases:

  • Thick cut bacon
  • NY Strip Steak
  • Ground Beef
  • Marinated boneless skiness chicken breasts (Italiano Romano is my favorite flavor)
  • Green pepper, cheddar brats
  • Butterflied porkchops

We also love their chicken wings and their twice baked potatoes. They have a lot more things, including a more flavors of brats, deli meat and salads, cuts of meat, and fresh and frozen items. Oh and did I mention the wine and beer?

  1. Thanks so much for sharing! We’re glad you enjoy the store. We’d love to change your mind on the cheese selection – the Bacon Cheddar & Whiskey cheeses are much more than novelty cheeses. They’re really well thought out products that we put in a ton of work with Hill Valley Dairy. We’d love to have the opportunity to try them with you, hopefully with the cheesemaker Ron, and show you the depth of cheeses we have, including a ton from Carr Valley, Hook’s, Deer Creek, Marieke, and more. Send us a message on Facebook, and we’d love to set it up.

    Cheers!
