Strock’s Farm Fresh Meats and Catering is located just outside Mechanicsburg on the Williams Grove Road,where the Strocks have been farming for four generations – over 100 years!
Grandpa was a dairy farmer and Grandma started the fresh turkey business over seventy years ago. This project has grown into the premier fresh-dressed turkey business in Central PA. Kent and Raelene returned home, after sojourning in the West raising hogs and teaching Ag Science, to run the family business, and now we retail more than 2500 fresh dressed, farm raised turkeys every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
In 1982, we built our first commercial pig roaster. That first summer we roasted 15 pigs. Since then we’ve been continually refining our roasters and adding to our capacity. Now we have the capacity to roast 15 pigs at one time, and last year we cooked over 200 pigs for a wide variety of events. In 1994, faced with continually increasing demand, we expanded the pig roasting to include side dishes and full service picnic catering.
Now our services extend year round. We cater both private events and business functions, with our primary emphasis on working with our clients to provide the perfect atmosphere and service for every event. Most of our employees come to us through our church in Mechanicsburg, and we bring a strong family atmosphere and ethic to everything we do. After all, our family is what’s most important to us, and we believe that our clients value the family atmosphere we foster in every event we cater.
