About Yoder Meat & Cheese Co., Inc
Four generations of experience in meat cutting and raising cattle have made us who we are today. Yoder's Meat & Cheese Company has been serving the Southern Michigan/Northern Indiana area with premium quality meats and food products for 50 years. When owner Robert Yoder's grandfather Amos was 17 years old, sometime in the early 1920s, he worked as a drover on a cattle drive from Colorado to Oklahoma. Though we can't be sure, we like to think that's where the seed was planted, where our love of working with cattle to produce top-quality beef began. In any case, when Amos "Butch" Yoder returned to Shipshewana, Indiana, he continued working with beef, passing his passion on to his son Perry "Butch" Yoder, who founded Yoder's Butchering & Processing in 1960 at the SR 4 location, five miles east of Goshen, IN. In 1972 he purchased the present location in Shipshewana, IN, on SR 5 next to the Flea Market and Auction Barn. The entire operation was moved to Shipshewana after fire destroyed the SR 4 location in 1992.
Current owners Robert "Bob" Yoder, son of Perry, and his sisters Fern & Rosanna are the third generation in the family owned and operated business. The fourth generation, Bob's son Dustin, is also now involved in the day to day operations.
