Halenda's Butcher from King & Townline - Nicholas Matusiak makes it to the championship round in the Ontario's Finest Butcher Competition

On Monday September 12, 2016, twelve butchers faced off in the first round of competition that was set to be a tough one. The butchers from across Ontario were clearly  excited. The butchers were required to cut three pork items into merchandisable cuts of their choice. It was tight as Nicholas was up against some highly experienced meat cutters, but his knife was flying and his cuts of meat made the grade -

Nick did very well at the finals Saturday October 22 in Deerhurst. The butchers were given Rabbit, Veal and a whole Chicken. The previous winner Peter took the top prize again, but Nicholas did very well and we are very proud!
