New Local Businesses of Interest


October 31, 2021

As a small (local) business, many of you know we desire to support our fellow small and local businesses. SO when a couple such establishments recently opened in Rogersville, and particularly hold a interest to us and sure our guests, we wanted to share the news.

Valley Mountain Quality Meats – Our neighbors the Scott Family contacted us to say they were starting a business with partners in the building previously vacated by Family Pharmacy in the heart of Rogersville. We were excited to hear this locally owned and operated business would feature prime beef, a butcher to process and cut to order, along with supported items like Ozark Mountain Creamery (which we use and love milk in glass bottles), cheeses, rubs, spices, jams, and wood pellets for such smokers as Traeger and Weber.

Sauces and Spices

Their meats are beautiful, and delicious. Scott told me they wanted to be able to sell quality meats DIRECTLY to the consumer. They come from their 1200 acre operation running about 1400 head of Angus cattle, here in Webster County, so you know your meat will be fresh….

Watch for their specials on FaceBook. They are open 6 days a week.

The NEW American Made General Store in Rogersville

Recently, construction popped up just off US-60 on the south side at Chicory Road, and it was announced that an American Made General Store would soon be occupying. It opened in the last couple of weeks. Never heard of it? Me neither, with only two stores in Arkansas, little was known about it. Well, turns out it is a tribute to things Made in America, and offering up a wide variety of “General Store” items like days gone by!!!

I recently visited, took pictures and talked to the owner who was on-site. I found the store to be a little deli, a lot of  food pantry items, some meat and dairy essentials, part candy store, toys, vintage signs, farm wearables and boots, Amish swings and gliders, and more. They also offer metal buildings made to order, a big part of their business.

The deli offers sandwiches (site shows breakfast as well) along with ice cream. This store too offers meats, Ozark Mountain Creamery milk (from Mountain Grove down the road). I am glad to see these glass bottle milk products now in Rogersville since we had to drive to Springfield to get some.
