According to Bal and Rick Fisher, Glenwood Meats has been in Langford since 1950—seven remarkable decades! What makes their shop so special? “Two things,” the owners say, “quality products and exceptional customer service.” Given their longevity and popularity, that seems to be a pretty accurate description, especially given their wide customer base. “While most customers come from Langford, many come from elsewhere on the Island, all looking for the unique, quality products and service we offer,” say Bal and Rick. “ We are pleased to welcome everyone,” they say with pride.
Glenwood Meats is a family-owned business that grew out of a farming tradition. It’s now into the fourth generation of hardworking owners who strive to provide the very best in quality products. They rely on a wide range of suppliers and focus on using Canadian suppliers whenever possible. Some of the companies they use include Island Farms Poultry (based on Vancouver Island), Barry Bay Sheep Farm out of Metchosin, Little Qualicum Cheese works, Salt Spring Kitchen and House of Q BBQ Sauce (made in Canada). The company is also pleased to feature Alberta AAA beef and premium lamb from Opal Valley in Australia. Unlike many meat markets. Glenwood Meats also offers products from Finest at Sea, a Victoria-based fish company.
In addition to offering beef, lamb, pork and chicken, Glenwood Meats also features sausages and a range of deli products. “We tend to focus on what people want,” says Rick. “And then locate the best suppliers we can.”
At the current time, customers can order by phone or email and all orders are cut and packaged to customers’ preferences. With the closure of the retail store because of the pandemic, Bal and Rick are busy keeping up with demand. They are pleased to have opened their outdoor pick-up window. “It makes things easier for us and the customers,” the couple say, “and of course we practice physical distancing and all other health and safety requirements, so both we and our customers feel safe and comfortable at all times.”
Glenwood Meats, with its long history of quality products and first-rate customer service, is an exceptional asset to the Langford business community and most certainly to its loyal customers!Visit Business Listing
