University of Minnesota Meat Lab



The University of Minnesota has two salesrooms, one for meat and the other for dairy products, which are open for 3 hours of each week to sell items made from production classes or from control labs of student projects for the sole purpose of recouping funds for teaching and student research projects. I've known about them for years and just recently went to the St. Paul campus for the first time to sample the food. Silly me! All those wasted years! What a find! As I do at the Farmers Market, I over-bought and brought home ice cream, cheeses, yogurt, rib eye steaks, lamb shoulder chops, salami, Canadian bacon, ground turkey and lamb. Everything is so very fresh!!Students operate the salesrooms. Vegetarians wouldn't be interested, but I am!!

  6. I would be interested in the yogurt and dairy products and I am vegetarian! :)

    That's a really neat place to have so close by. Can you freeze the meats to use at a later time?
