All of the meat at The Chop Shop comes from family-owned ranches located in the USA. This includes Iowa grain-fed aged beef, Iowa corn-fed pork, and milk-fed veal.

All of their animals are fed a 100% vegetarian diet. They’re hormone and antibiotic-free and are raised outdoors in clean, comfortable environments.


The Chop Shop also carries fresh seafood, local produce, and a selection of hard-to-find gourmet items. This includes fine cheeses, imported chocolates, aged olive oil, a selection of pastas, jams and preservatives, coffee, tea, and more.

If you’re looking for something you can’t find, all you have to do is ask! Chances are, if they don’t have it, they’re happy to order it for you.


Their award-winning delicatessen features a variety of salads made from the freshest possible ingredients and a selection of hot items made daily to-go. When you don’t have time to cook, this is the perfect solution! You’ll be able to present your family with a delicious homemade meal in a matter of minutes.


The patriarch of the family, Doug Stivers, is responsible for sourcing wine from both local vineyards and popular labels. Take a look through the wine isle and you’ll always be able to find the perfect bottle to complement your meal.
