Established in 2020, Bucky’s Varsity Meats is a one-of-a-kind full-service meat shop on the campus of The University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are a student-driven shop, committed to education and showcasing the incredible variety of products and cuts produced at our premier facility, the Meat Science & Animal Biologics Discovery 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 that are committed to humanely raising healthy animals with the best welfare available. The department of Animal & Dairy Science maintains these animals to support their missions research, instruction, outreach, and the support animal agriculture and sustainable food systems. We source quality animals and meats from our farms in Arlington and local suppliers.
