Established in 2020, Bucky’s Varsity Meats is truly a one-of-a-kind, full-service retail meat store located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s campus. We are a student-driven store, committed to education and showcasing the incredible variety of products and cuts produced at our premier state-of-the-art facility, the Meat Science & Animal Biologics Diversity Building.
The University of Wisconsin has nearly 2000 acres of farmland set aside for agricultural research in Arlington, WI – about 20 miles north of campus. This research station is composed of 12 individual livestock and crop units managed by distinguished experts committed to humanely raising healthy animals with the best welfare practices to produce high-quality meat.
We source quality animals and meats from our farms in Arlington and local suppliers to offer wholesome, premium products to the campus and surrounding communities.
Varsity Meats is open Fall of 2020 for online orders and curbside pickup!
After years of careful planning and tremendous work, we have moved into our new building – considered by many to be the most advanced structure ever built by the State of Wisconsin and the country’s premier meat science and research facility.
Use this online storefront to browse and purchase our available products. As we are starting from scratch in a brand new facility, we are currently offering a small selection of our classic products from the past as we grow exciting new product lines made possible by our incredible facility.
Orders placed through this site will select a date and time for pickup. Please give us at least a half-hour’s notice to prepare your items. We are open Monday – Friday 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
