HERRING BROTHERS MEATS
HISTORY & AVAILABLE SERVICES
Herring Brothers Meats is a family owned and operated business. The company was originally started by Charles Herring in the 1920's who processed animals for local family and friends. Eventually, Charles' sons Lorin and Malcolm Herring took over and ran the business for about 40 years. The third generation then became part of the story. Presently, Thomas and Andrea(Mac's daughter) Gilbert and their children(fourth generation) Trey Gilbert and Ellie Patterson own and operate the family business.
