We Believe in Quality

A Farm to Table Butcher


Our Story

Family owned and operated, Hanford Packing Company has provided the highest quality meat for over 50 years.

With more than half a century of experience in our community, we have earned the reputation for the level of quality and service you just can’t find in your grocer’s meat section.

Our beef and pork are raised locally in the feed lots of your friends and neighbors in Newton County and the surrounding areas. Each of our providers has been carefully chosen. Each of our providers takes great pride in knowing they are raising the very finest quality freezer meats available anywhere in the country today.

In 2022, Nicole and Mike Hayden took ownership. They are excited to continue to provide high quality, local meat to North West Indiana.

One of the best butchers around. Had a hog taken care of. When gotten back about 4 days later best hams, chops, bacon, and sausages, ect. I have had. Would highly recommend to stop in for all butcher needs. Joseph Springsteen, July 2022
