IMG_3820 - Pierce Lockers
This is about a 100-year-old building, and the sign is probably just as old. I'm not sure if most people today would think a picture of a cow with some knives around it would be in good taste. Pierce Lockers (in my hometown of Pierce, Nebraska) is where you take your side of beef that you bought (or the deer you shot) to get processed into just about anything you can think of. It's also the home of the somewhat famous Wragge Dogs (Wragge rhymes with doggy), which are the best hot dogs I've ever had. Here's a pic of more of the building, too:
UPDATE: This page gave me a little more on Pierce Lockers:
Terry Wragge has been in the locker business at Pierce Lockers in Pierce, Nebraska for nearly 30 years. For a good share of those years, he’s been selling his famous hand-twisted hotdogs – the Wragge dogs – from the locker to customers stopping by from 47 states. . . .
They do custom butchering of beef and pork on Tuesdays. He’s already getting booked ahead for the fall, so be sure to reserve your processing date as soon as possible.

For folks who haven’t purchased farm fresh meat before, Terry can help you find a local family farmer to buy from and he can help you decide how to have the meat processed and packaged for your convenience. If you don’t have enough freezer space at home, you can rent locker space from Terry.

Pierce Lockers is open weekdays from 7 am to 5 pm and 8 am til noon on Saturdays. They are located at 117 N. Brown Street, just a half block off Main Street just south of the courthouse in Pierce. For more information, you can call Pierce Lockers at 402-329-4365. Learn more about Pierce Lockers and other places where you can buy locally raised food by visiting the web at farmtofamily.net. And remember, when you buy local food, you buy the best.
