Our Story:

Owner & Butcher, Cody Shields has over 10 years of experience in the butcher industry. Starting his trade in the industry back in 2007, at Piney's Hog Farm in New Egypt, New Jersey, and furthering his skills at various butcher shops in the Tri-State Area ranging from head butcher to General Manager. During his time as a butcher, he has seen that many of these butcher shops are frauds; selling select grade meats as choice grade/prime grade, lying to their customers about the quality of their products, and not being ethical in their practices. He knew there should be someone doing a more respectable job for the trade. And so, The Big Body Butcher was founded as an official LLC in October 2018 and continues to supply loyal customers all over the country with high quality products.
