This week rounds out our summer of following along with WCCO’s Goin’ to the Lake segments!
We’ve recommended beef stops near numerous lake vacation/weekend getaway destinations around the state of Minnesota – and occasionally in Wisconsin. The very first Goin’ to the Lake destination this summer was Spooner, Wisconsin, and the very last is in Amery, Wisconsin. Located just over an hour northeast of the Twin Cities, Amery has just enough distance to provide the relaxation and outdoor adventures necessary for a weekend at the lake!
While Amery may not be located within the state of Minnesota, we found a great Minnesota meat market for you to check out on your way to Amery and a new restaurant in the Amery area to check out for some great beef!
Located in Lindstrom, Minnesota, along Highway 8, Deutschland Meats is a great stop to load up your cooler with some Minnesota beef before heading across the border into Wisconsin! Adding the stop only adds about ten extra minutes to the trip to Amery from the Twin Cities! (It’s also pretty difficult to miss, as the store has a larger-than-life hot dog on top of it! Check that out >>>
Deutschland Meats is a family-owned and operated meat processing company that provides stores, restaurants and, of course, the general public with high-quality, fresh meats! They utilize authentic family recipes from a German sausage maker! With 28 different flavors of fresh bratwurst and countless varieties of sausages and “wursts”, there’s certainly something for everyone from Deutschland Meats! Check them out!

Farm Table’s focus on craft cooking, authentic ingredients and healthy foods has brought them instant fame in the short time since they opened their doors in Amery, Wisconsin. Local foods from the area grace the menu and even the coffee, beer, wine and homemade soda are carefully sourced! Farm Table is unique and ever-changing as their menu reflects the changing seasons in Wisconsin.
Their menu includes a Classic Cheeseburger, New York Strip Steak and numerous other delicious and fresh options!

Stay tuned to WCCO’s weekend in Amery this Thursday and Friday through the Facebook event page!
With that, our summer of road trippin’ with beef has come to an end. But, as all Minnesotans know, we’ve got four seasons here. These lake locations will most likely be frozen over later this year and that means another excuse to be “goin’ to the lake!” So, check back in to this blog series during the winter months for some great beef options to fill your fridge with or to fill your belly with after a long day on the (frozen) water!
It’s been a pleasure beefin’ up your summer road trips. For us here at Minnesota Beef, we love to find great beef options all over the state of Minnesota – whether it’s a meat market, a restaurant or in a grocery store. Leave a comment below and let us know where your favorite places are to enjoy beef in our great state of Minnesota!
Beef and blessings,
