Where the Quality Originates

This was established in 1980 when Salvador Aguilar first opened the cooler doors of the Grove Meat Company. Quality is what would separate his lamb company from all the others. And so has it remained to this day. His experience with lamb dates back to the 1950’s and his interest in serving his customers with highest regard goes back even further. This dedication has been forwarded on to the second generation, his sons. It is from their skill and knowledge that Grove can guarantee only The Finest in American Lamb and will continue to do so in the years to come.
