About Tymkovich Meats

family

William Tymkovich was born in the Ukraine in 1898, the second of four children. The family moved to the United States in 1912 seeking a better life. This is when a family tradition began.

At a very young age, Bill began working in slaughterhouses in the Denver area. Soon, he became skilled in the meat business and desired to own his own meat plant. Several years later, he turned a building on his farm into a small slaughterhouse, doing mostly custom beef for local farmers.

In 1951, Bill was offered a meat plant for a good price. He bought the place and the family business has been at that same location ever since.

In 1986, Bill's grandson Tim took over and carried on the family tradition, adding homemade sausages and buffalo to the list of fine meat products being sold. We feel that the "old way" of doing things is still the best way. Hanging beef to age gives the beef better flavor and helps to tenderize it. This is a much better way than the new way most grocers sell meat: Boxed.

In short, what has kept us in business for over 50 years is selling only food products that we would eat and enjoy ourselves.
