Story Summary

In 2000, Scott Heintz opened Heintz Processing where he independently processes wild and domestic animals. Slaughtering and butchering animals is never a pretty sight, but it’s a necessary step for people to get their meat. Four years later, Heintz’s wife, Kathy, started a catering truck, which later evolved into a meat store and restaurant combo named Meats And Eats. Their award-winning products are sold at the store, bringing meats from field to table. Both run their businesses almost completely by themselves, resulting in busy work lives with minimal free time. They’re tough jobs, but someone has to do them.
