Archer’s Butcher Block

archers butcher blockThe Windfall September 16, 2011 Business Spotlight we are pleased to feature Archer’s Custom Meat Cutting and Archer’s Butcher Block Meat Market and Delicatessen. This 3rd generation of Butchers and 2nd generation family owned and operated business relocated their operation to Placerville in April of 2010. In November of 2010 they expanded to include the meat market and deli (Archer’s Butcher Block). This old fashioned butcher shop and delicatessen continues to win the favor of local residents and hunters both near and far! Back in 1997, Max and Gail Archer started Archer’s Custom Meat Cutting, which included meat cutting and wild game processing in Georgetown. In 1999, their daughter Georgia and son-in-law Gary Grover, took over and continue that success today!

With hunting season now upon us, Georgia and Gary welcome all Deer and Big Game Hunters! “By processing one animal at a time, we can ensure that your animal is YOUR animal! At our newly remodeled facility we can process, Deer, Elk, Wild Pig, Bear and all other Big Game. In addition we process, Beef, Pig, Lamb, Goat, Emu, Ostrich and Buffalo,” stated Gary. He continued, “We specialize in cured and smoked products in our own smokehouse! We make our own salami, jerky, ham, bacon, pastrami, corned beef, smoked port chops, smoked spare ribs, smoked chicken and smoked turkey all on site!” When asked what makes Archer’s unique, Georgia stated, “We offer 6 different ‘Value Packages’ with meats to fit your individual families’ needs. Our beef, pork and chicken are all natural, without hormones or steroids. We also carry specialty meats that others do not offer such as Pheasant, Lamb, Duck, Elk, Venison, Buffalo and Rabbit.”

Archer’s is truly an old fashioned butcher shop and delicatessen that provides outstanding customer service as soon as you call or walk in their door! You will be amazed at the abundant variety they offer for lunch or dinner, Your every day items are here too, including bacon, sausage, deli meats, fresh ground beef and old fashioned beef franks. Here at The Windfall, we love to take home their smoked chicken and ribs, along with hot links and specialty bacon/cheese hamburgers for our weekend BBQ! Whether you have time to ‘eat in’ at Archer’s or you are grabbing it ‘to go’ their salads are always fresh and their sandwiches are outstanding and made to order! Georgia is famous for stating, “You won’t have to ask where the meat is…You’ll find it on our sandwiches!” She would be absolutely right! Don’t forget their deli case including several varieties of cheese and marinades to take home. Be sure and try their cheesecake jewels, they will satisfy any sweet tooth!

“I love that any of their 7 lunch meats are only $6.49/lb. and their meat prices are better than grocery store prices.”
Tara, Placerville

“So happy to finally find a place to buy my meats that are hormone and steroid free and taste so good!”

From venison to rabbit and pheasant to bison, Archer’s offers every type of meat under the sun to satisfy your culinary adventures.

Archer’s delicatessen is equally prepared to satisfy the taste buds of those on the run with their made-to-order cold archers butcher block deli sandwich The Blockheadcut sandwiches and wide selection of sides. On my visit, I tried the “Super Blockhead” sandwich , which consists of a random combo of meats and cheeses on a rustic roll: I definitely recommend it if you’re feeling adventurous and hungry! Archer’s also offers a full-service butcher shop for anyone needing to break down his or her own meat. If you’re looking to satisfy a small army or just yourself, Archer’s knowledgeable staff will direct you to endless tasty options…even beef bacon! Now that’s something you’ve got to try!
