LEM was founded by Larry Metz in 1991 with a simple idea, provide the equipment, supplies and know how to anyone interested in converting their game to delicious sausage and jerky. To do this Larry drew on 35 years of experience as a meat cutter with one of the largest foodservice company’s in the United States. An avid hunter, his knowledge of processing and love of the outdoors led him to establish a big game processing business in the 1980’s. During this time he developed a boneless method of processing that gave the processor a variety of table cuts that were tender, had excellent taste and were custom cut to meet the individual’s needs. In 1991 our first product, a 98 minute video, “Deer Processing From Field to Table”, was produced in response to many clients requests. It remains a best seller to this day. Hundreds of thousands of hunters have learned to professionally process their game from this video. Larry and the LEM team were soon developing an entire line of equipment, supplies and seasonings to meet the varied needs and tastes of big game hunters everywhere.
From those humble beginnings, LEM has become the leader in Game Processing. We carry over 700 different products and stand behind them with a trained staff and loaded parts inventory. You can find LEM and Backwoods Brands in over 600 retail stores in 37 states and Canada. Additionally you can shop on-line or request a free catalog on the site.

We will continue to scour the country and the globe to find new products that will make food preparation easy and fun. We will support our customers with end-to-end service and guaranteed satisfaction. Lastly, we will continue to promote the responsible use of our greatest gift, the bountiful outdoors. We believe home processing to be a deeply rewarding experience and an essential part of the outdoor experience. We hope you will join us in the fun!
