Weaver's Smoked Dried Beef & Pork Bacon... HELP!

rpglancy Nov 9, 2012 11:05 AM

I live in RI and for years have been ordering Weaver's Dried Smoked Beef and Bacon directly from Godshall's (the new-ish owner of Weaver's) and have just found out that they no-longer offer mail or online orders to individuals. They only want to deal with retailers (wholesale orders).

Does anyone know where else I can buy these items and have them shipped?

I am panicked because it is our family's tradition to have Weaver's for breakfast on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning... Hormel just won't do!!!

    Stauffers, a local chain, carries very similar products. Not sure if they ship.
    S. Clyde Weaver also has similar meats.

      Thank you! I've heard that S. Clyde Weaver is very good also. I will probably try them as they seem to have shipping available.

        I love S.Clyde Weaver products. I have not done mail order. But I try to make a stop at one of their farmer market sites when I am in PA.

        Meeting siblings for Thanksgiving in Easton PA. (they are in Pittsburgh, I am in SE CT) My sister and I wIll be visiting a farmer's market Saturday to shop S. Clyde Weaver before driving home..

          Thanks for the endorsement of S.Clyde Weaver... They seem to be the best option and offer both the Dried Smoked Beef and Smoked Bacon that I am looking for. They do offer online shopping and shipping, though prices are more expensive than Godshall's/Weaver's... oh well. Better than not having it at all ;)

            Agreed! I grew up in Lancaster visiting the Central Market and for a time the Southern Market in the late '50s, 60's and 70's. S. Clyde Weaver's stand was always a first stop. The quality and varieties of their meats was fantastic, and they were a lovely family. Good hunting.

          I ordered for S Clyde Weaver and it was fabulous! More expensive than the old Weavers through Godshals, but at least I can get it shipped back East. Thanks for the help!

          There are many similar products to there available in this area (Lancaster County)
          This style of meats/bacon are very common around here.
          If you're willing to try a different brand, you'll probably have more success in getting them shipped
          in time for the holiday.
