Thousands of people agree that it is well worth the 15 minute picturesque drive from Hermann Missouri, to Swiss Meat & Sausage Company. What started as a small country store in the village of Swiss, is now a thriving family business with three generations at the helm.
Swiss Meat & Sausage Company, founded in 1969 by Bill and Margie Sloan, develops, produces, perfects and displays it’s many delicacies, which now includes over 65 varieties of link sausage and bratwurst, in an exotic showroom. They have been referred to as the “Bass Pro” of the sausage world. People come in to sample, enjoy one of their award winning brats or pit smoked beef brisket sandwiches from the deli, and just take in the sights and aromatic smells that their award winning smoked meats create!
Here you’ll find not only some of the best bacon in the USA, as referenced in the book, “BACON NATION”, but award winning Summer Sausages, German Bologna, German Braunschweiger, Grand Champion Hickory Smoked Hams and much, much more!

I remember as a child, my Grandpa Herb Weller would take me to the original Swiss Store. He always bought me a chocolate soldier. ( chocolate milk soda in a bittle) Lots of wonderful memories.
