BLOCK & CLEAVER is a traditional artisan butcher and sausage maker established in 2016 specializing in locally raised and naturally smoked products.  


Block & Cleaver focuses on traditional smoked items with balanced and unique flavors. Our branded products can be found at various outlets in Western Wisconsin and our retail store located 1.5 hours from both the Twin Cities and Duluth at 7991 1st Street Siren, WI 54872.  In addition to our smoked products our retail fresh case is stocked with a variety of fresh locally raised beef, heritage pork, chicken and seafood. If you harvest an animal this fall we also offer a variety of full Wild Game processing options.


In addition to its branded products, Block & Cleaver works closely with private label customers to develop new cuts and flavor profiles to meet the ever evolving creativity of chefs. These partnerships have placed products in 100 various restaurants, boutique retail shops, farmers markets, and co-ops spanning the upper Midwest.  


We are proud to call Siren home.  Since our inception in 2016 we’ve had and appreciate the support of this great northwoods community.  Without this support we wouldn’t have been able to open our retail store or grow our staff to 20 employees.
