The L.E. Tuckwiller Award is sponsored by Boone Area Chamber of Commerce in recognition of outstanding efforts in community development. We congratulate Watauga Butchery for being this year’s award recipient. With their response to a need for our local farm community to bring meat to market in an efficient and timely manner, Bob Shipley and his team worked quickly to help provide access to local meat products at a time where supplies were deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This facility ensured local farmers would not fall victim to delays and could get products to consumers at a time where capacity was limited. Watauga Butchery operates in the Vilas community with a number of local farms participating. Details about its formation were in a July ARTICLE.
