[SUPER=03-Montgomery Co.;]

The shop operates out of a small building in the Merrimac community in Montgomery County. Owner Larry Linkous started the shop when he was 20-years-old. Over the years, it has grown into a thriving business of beef, pork and venison processing thanks in large part to a loyal customer base. This time of year, just days after deer hunting season has ended, is one of their busiest. For Linkous, deciding to close the shop is not for a lack of work. Custom Meats processes over 13-hundred deer each year. Linkous says he's just too busy with other business ventures to keep a commitment to this one.
