Your friendly local butcher

CAM and Sue Polzin have been in the meat industry for 16 years on August 23 this year and have gone from strength to strength.

Cam did his trade qualification in the very same store and didn't anticipate that one day he would be back there as the one running the shop.

"The fella who had it wanted out," Mr Polzin said

"And the landlord didn't want the shop to close so we took it on."

The 16 years of non-stop trading that followed is a telling statement about the quality of the service provided.

As resident butchers of the North Burnett, Cam and Sue both take pride in sourcing their meat locally as much as possible.

"Close to 60% of our beef is sourced from our own cattle," Mr Polzin said

"And we supplement the rest via Nolan Meats in Gympie."

Sheep are also sourced regionally where available.

The front counter display shows off the high quality of meat being sold.

"Keep it fresh, keep it cold and keep it moving," Mr Polzin said.

The focus of the business is to diversify their offerings which Mr Polzin believes is best for business.

With about 30 different flavoured sausages Cam and Sue's can cater to even the fussiest of meat eaters as well as gourmet roasts in the front window.

And for those steak lovers look no further than the regionally famous cave man steak.

"People can't get enough of it," Mr Polzin said.

Mr and Mrs Polzin never forget the community they supply and are active sponsors of the golf and bowls clubs and provide meat trays for raffles.

Support the people that support you is the sentiment that Mr and Mrs Polzin take pride in.
